THE RANGERS captain says he and his teammates are striving for perfection as Pedro Caixinha’s new look Gers start to gel.

The Light Blues could go top of the Premiership overnight if they beat Partick Thistle tomorrow evening – a position they haven’t been in since 2011.

Lee Wallace says the team have been working on making small improvements to their game after two back to back wins in the league and they are now targeting a double at Firhill.

He said: “We are continuously working hard on the training pitches to get these things right and the last two results have been great but now we need to keep that momentum, keeping building confidence and moving forward.

“It is small details that we need to improve on but we are together and looking for that perfection which we ourselves what to try and get.

“We are getting there, we are taking the small steps that we need to be taking and there is a lot of hard work to go, there is a lot of gelling still to go but we are happy.

“We do know that we should have scored more goals on Saturday and that is a good criticism.

“The score line could have been more and we switched off towards the end and could have scored more in that period than we did.

“We know we are going to be under pressure in games and we need to start taking our chances because that has definitely been a criticism of our group so it is a huge bonus to the team that we have guys who can score goals

“These are things we will always look to improve in our game because we know there are going to be tougher tests ahead.

“As a group we are gelling, the new guys are learning the language, learning about the culture, bringing their families over and getting used to the city. That is moving forward positively.”

Rangers travel to Glasgow’s west end twice inside five days to battle Thistle in both league and cup action. They then face Celtic for the first time this season.

Wallace continued: “It is not quite a normal situation playing there Friday and then Tuesday but we will do our homework on them and prepare well.  We will look to try and win both games and then take it from there.

“They are going to be a tough opponent and one that is motivated to get their first win in the league.

“We will be encouraged and motivated by a big following of fans on Friday night. If all goes well for us over the next couple of games there are nice things to look forward to.

“After these two tough games against Partick Thistle then the build-up will start and everybody knows about the build-up and the intensity that surrounds that game.”
