WES FODERINGHAM could not have been happier for Rangers’ loan signing Billy King after he scored the winning goal on his home debut for the club against Falkirk yesterday.
The English shotstopper kept his second clean sheet in the space of a week to frustrate Peter Houston’s men and while delighted to do that, he admits the icing on the cake was seeing super sub King head home his injury-time winner after a disappointing 90 minutes.
He said: “Obviously, we know we can be better and Falkirk are a decent side, we’ve played them three times now and they’ve given us a hard time in each of those games.
“It was one of those games where you have to win ugly and fortunately we were able to do that.
“It was very pleasing [for Billy], It’s a special moment for him, being his debut and all, and the boys are very happy for him.
“You can see that from the celebrations at the end, it was perfect.
“I think we tried to do the right things throughout the whole game and we’ve obviously come out from the other side.
“Tav has put a great ball in and it was a great finish from Billy as well, so yeah it was very pleasing.
“The main thing was to get the three points which we managed to do. We were below par and we lacked a bit of quality in the final third, but you are going to have that sometimes.
“I mentioned before that Falkirk are a very difficult side to play against and their league position speaks volumes, they have been fantastic all season.
“But I managed to make a couple of saves and the boys in front of me did really well defensively as well, so it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet.”
Foderingham, speaking to RangersTV.tv after the match, was quick to heap praise on the defenders in front of him for the protection they have provided in recent weeks.
He added: “I think the whole defence doesn’t really get the credit it deserves sometimes because we are scoring a lot of goals and the boys up front are taking all the plaudits.
“But Rob Kiernan, Dom Ball, Danny Wilson have been fantastic all season. they are unsung heroes at times and today, when we needed to defend, they done very well.”
