WES Foderingham says the Rangers squad have shown their critics they can win ugly ahead of the Gers trip to Easter Road this evening.

The goalkeeper believes the Light Blues are all pulling in the right direction after picking up a trio of wins under interim boss Graeme Murty.

A victory in the capital would take Foderingham and his teammates six points clear of fourth placed Hibernian.

Speaking to RangersTV the 26-year-old said: “The important thing was to get the three points at the weekend.

“We know we can play better than we did because it wasn’t a great performance but the main thing was that we won the game.

“When people write us off we seem to bounce right back and get the results we need.

“I think it has been a criticism of us in the past that sometimes when things are going against us we don’t pick up points. In the last few weeks we have shown we can do that.

“Football brings people together and we are all professionals and we all want the same thing and are pulling in the same direction and I think the fans can see that.

“Hibs are a very good side, they have good league form at the moment and they’re coming off the back of a good performance against Celtic.

“In the game we played at home against them we started really well, it was probably the best we’ve started in a league fixture.

“Until the sending off we had full control of the game and that is what changed things. We have full confidence we can go there and put on a good performance.”


Foderingham has undergone more changes than most at Rangers in the interim period under Murty, the keeper also has an interim goalkeeping coach in Colin Stewart, the son of his previous keeper coach Jim.

The former Swindon stopper praised the impact the stand in managerial team have had on the Light Blues.

He said: “It is not easy with a new manager not coming in and Murts having to step in but he has done a great job so far.

“Our job as professionals is to do the job on the pitch and work hard in training; I think we have done that really well.

“Of course there are distractions but it is our job to deal with it and ultimately what we’ve got to do is win football matches and that is what we’re judged on.

“I think he has brought a smile to everyone’s face, fans have taken to him and the boys enjoy having him around.

“A lot of the boys are familiar with him from the last time he stepped in and he has just continued with what he did then by bringing the boys together which I think is evident on the pitch.”
