FABIO Cardoso says he is finally getting used to the pressure of playing for Rangers after the Light Blues grabbed an important win over Ross County.
The centre-half arrived in the summer from Benfica and has started all four league games giving him seven competitive appearances for his new side and an ever present record.
Following a loss and dropped points against Hibernian and Hearts Cardoso admits winning can be the only option at Rangers.
Speaking to RangersTV he said:
“The win is very good; it was down to the work of the team. We train all week for this, to win.
“The only way is winning and we want to win, this win is a reflection of our hard work.
“When you are at a club like Rangers, a massive club and we have supporters, like were here at Ross County, who are amazing all the time then we want to give them the win they deserve.
“The pressure is normal to us, we are used to the pressure and we will always have pressure on us to win.
“I knew Rangers was a big club, I knew that before I came to the club but I didn’t imagine how massive and how big it actually is now I am here.”
While Cardoso has not missed a competitive game since he signed nor has Bruno Alves alongside him in defence and the 23-year-old can already sense himself improving under the guidance of his fellow countryman.
With the squad afforded four days off over the international break the Portugal Under-21 revealed he will return home for a few days to rest after his recent move to Glasgow.
“Bruno is very good, he is one of the best centre-backs my country has ever had and I am learning a lot from him. I know I will learn and grow more as a player playing alongside him.
“He is very good with the ball and without the ball; he is very good physically and also tactically so for me it is incredible to play with Bruno.
“It is always good to have a break, I have just moved here so it means I can go back home and see my family and friends.
“We are focussed on the league and we are focussed on winning against Dundee in the next game when we get back.”
