DEFENDER Daniel Finlayson said he was proud of all of his teammates as they gave their all against Championship side Inverness Caldedonian Thistle this evening.

The young Gers narrowly lost out 2-1 in the Challenge Cup semi-final after Inverness came from behind to progress at a wet and windy Caledonian Stadium.

Speaking to RangersTV after the game, Finlayson said: “We are disappointed but first of all I’d like to say I am proud of all the boys and how far we have come.

“There were a lot of good individual performances tonight but we just didn’t do enough and that is something that we will look back on and we need to be better.

“It was a great strike from Dapo from the edge of the box and it set us up well for the rest of the game.

“It gave us that lift at the start of the game and gave us the momentum going forward and I think we looked very steady but obviously we gave the cheap goal away.

“I thought we were 100 per cent the better team we looked dominant, we looked organised, we looked sharp and it looked like they couldn’t handle us for 90 per cent of the match.”

The Gers pushed John Robertson’s Inverness to the final whistle but just couldn’t get that all important second goal.

Finlayson added:

“It was just one of those nights where we deserved more, all the boys are hurting massively in the changing room it is just something that you hate to see.

“I think we fully deserved to win and I can’t fault the boys for keeping going, we just need to go back and lift the heads and go again.”
