MARK WARBURTON hopes the Ibrox support were able to see the complete commitment from his side in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Ross County.
After going behind to an Alex Schalk goal, Gers responded positively as half-time approached and then battered hard on the County door, but only once were they able to find a way through with captain Lee Wallace netting an equaliser with 20 minutes left to play.
Speaking to RangersTV.tv afterwards, he explained: “The fans were tremendous and they are at home watching their team with the history the club has, and we should be winning games at home, I fully understand that.
“I hope they saw the boys give everything in the second half – there was no let-up in terms of intensity, and they were creating and driving forward and getting into good areas.
“The crowd saw that, the support was excellent as always, and what we have to do is get the rewards by putting the ball in the back of the net and we have to do that more often.”
Warburton was also asked about the changes he made to his side going into the game, and he responded: “I thought Philippe and Clint were strong. There was one situation in the first half where both went for the same ball – but they haven’t played together if at all, but I thought they dealt very comfortably with what was thrown at them.
“We got the full-backs especially in the second half which was much, much better, we got on the ball in midfield and Jon Toral affected the game getting on the half-turn and getting forward. The front-line were bright and I was pleased with the subs.
“We had Joe Dodoo on the bench who was desperate to get on, and we were creating so many chances I thought it was going to come. So I am pleased with that, it’s about using the squad – that’s fine – but we are never satisfied about drawing a game of football, home or away, but the fact of the matter is we created so many chances and on another day that should be good for us.”
