GRAEME Murty admitted he was frustrated with tonight’s Development Squad performance despite picking up three points in the Glasgow Cup.

The Development Head Coach says they know they can play better as Clyde threatened to come back into the game with Rangers seeing out a 3-2 victory.

Speaking to RangersTV after the game, he said: “I’m frustrated actually, some of our stuff is very very good and I don’t want to come across as miserable.

“Some of the way our guys can handle the ball, their rotation, the movement of the ball, movement of players, ability to handle the ball in tight areas was very very good. Some of our understanding and our pressing is excellent.

“Some of it was very poor today and the difference between the two was too big and I said to the guys the frustrating thing for us is that we know they are not perfect and we know they are not going to get everything right but when they feel that control start to slip they need to take more ownership.

“They need to be problem solvers on the pitch instead of us and as I said we have won the game but we think we know we can be better in a lot of areas.”

The Light Blues got off to a strong start with Dapo Mebude opening the scoring inside two minutes before James Maxwell doubled their lead midway through the first-half.

Murty continued: “It was a brilliant start and the goals were great, and all the things we talk about dealing with the ball in tight areas, being one v one dominant was great.

“Then after 20 minutes we stopped doing the fundamental stuff that we were really good at.

“I’ve got to say their goal was a bit of a freak one but they created a couple of opportunities from straight balls that we talked about earlier and we needed to organise but as a result at half time we were a bit frustrated.

“We weren’t as smooth as we would like but the players to be fair managed to get control again and they managed to move the ball.

“They need to understand when teams are very well organised and very well structured we need to be slicker and smoother with the ball and we need to continue in trusting the process of playing and I felt for periods we didn’t we became a little bit individual and we didn’t trust the process enough which is something we have been really good at recently.”
