GOALKEEPER Wes Foderingham reckons Rangers are a better team having come through a sticky run of results to score 10 goals in their last two games to defeat Hibernian and Dumbarton.
The Light Blues’ critics were queueing up to have their say following a 2-2 draw with Morton and a 2-1 defeat to Falkirk prior to Christmas, but Mark Warburton’s side have responded in style with superb 4-2 and 6-0 demolitions of the Hibees and the Sons since.
And Foderingham also believes the hard work being put in on the training pitch is showing come matchday.
Speaking to RangersTV.tv, he explained: “You are never going to go through a season that is perfect – there are always going to be stages where teams will put you under pressure and there may be a little bit of a sticky patch, but we have come through that now and we are stronger for that.
“I think our performances in the last two games have shown that. We have been working hard on the training ground in terms of taking the chances we create, and I think that really showed on Saturday.
“Scoring the six goals was pleasing, the boys attacked really, really well and we defended really well too.”
More than a week on, the victory over Hibernian is still on every supporter’s lips, and Foderingham reckons Rangers showed what they were all about inside a fervent Ibrox cauldron – an atmosphere he believes to be the best he has ever experienced.
He added: “That came couldn’t have come at a better time. It put us under a little bit of pressure and everyone outside the club was probably saying it was a chance for Hibs to take over at the top, but we dealt with the pressure very, very well.
“We had a fantastic week’s training leading up to it, and our performance on the day too was fantastic, and it was great for us to get the three points.
“The atmosphere was absolutely first class, and all the boys were saying how it was the best atmosphere they have ever played in front of.
“It definitely spurred us on, and we were delighted to send the fans home happy and to get the three points.
“The gaffer said to us that has to be the norm for us, and we are only going to get the fans creating that atmosphere by winning football matches and doing positive things on the pitch.”
