IN the short spell Clint Hill has spent at Rangers so far, he admits he’s been made well aware that draws are never enough.
Having played previously for clubs where a point may have been seen as a good result away from home, he understands it’s totally different as a Light Blues player, and he admits the failure to pick up maximum points has irritated every one of his teammates following Friday’s draw at Kilmarnock.
He explained: “One thing I’ve learned since I’ve been here is every game has to be won. There are a lot of divisions all over the world where you go away from home and some people are happy.
“That’s not the case here – the tradition at this club is you have to win every game, and unfortunately we couldn’t do that on Friday night, so we are all really disappointed.
Rangers’ next opportunity to get back on track in the Scottish Premiership could hardly be more difficult, with a visit to Celtic their next league match a week on Saturday.
This Saturday however, they play Linfield in a friendly match at Windsor Park, and Hill reckons having that additional game could work to Gers advantage in terms of getting more match sharpness and ironing out various issues that have plagued the side so far this season.
He continued: “We have a few days off before going back into training, then we head over to Northern Ireland to play a difficult game, but I think that will be a good thing.
“It’ll be good for the likes of myself to get a bit more match fitness, as will the other boys who haven’t played quite as much as well, and then hopefully we can hit the ground running against Celtic.”
