RANGERS have two more games to go before the end of 2016 – and Clint Hill is targeting two more wins to bring the curtain down on the year in a perfect manner.
Celtic are, of course, the visitors to Ibrox on Hogmanay but before that, Gers travel to Perth on Wednesday night to take on St Johnstone, and Hill insists the focus of everyone at the club is all on that game.
He explained: “It’s two big games to come now, but we have to concentrate on St Johnstone. That’s going to be another tough game for us, but it would be nice if we could end the year with another two wins and finish with six wins on the bounce ahead of the New Year and the break. Then, we can kick-on into the New Year. But we have to deal with Wednesday first.”
Saints proved to be a tough opponent for Gers earlier in the season as they claimed a point at Ibrox back in October, and Hill is well aware of the quality they pose.
He continued: “A lot of teams are like that in this league. They make it hard for you, especially when you pull on the Rangers top as everyone wants to beat you and I’ve certainly noticed that since I have been here. It’s going to be another tough game – they are at home and they will fancy it.
“We need to show that we are up for it again, and hopefully bring a bit more quality to the table next time around.”
Hill also praied the Gers support for their efforts in Christmas Eve’s 1-0 win over Inverness saying: “We have got to thank them today as we weren’t at our best. They stuck by us and could easily have gone the other way. So we have to thank them for getting us over the line at the vital time.
“It’s fantastic for us to have a support like that, and we have another home game to come. It’s going to be some finish to the year.”
