BARRIE McKAY was a disappointed man after his opening goal against St Johnstone this evening proved not to be enough to hand Rangers the three points.

McKay profited from a Zander Clark spill of a Joe Garner effort to put his side ahead, but it proved not to be enough with Steven MacLean netting an equaliser shortly afterwards.

McKay’s goal came amidst some intense Gers pressure, but after it was cancelled out, he felt his side didn’t quite reach the same heights again.

Speaking to, he explained: “It’s very frustrating obviously as I thought we had done enough to go on and win the game. It just wasn’t to be our night – I think they defended very well but we didn’t test their keeper that much in the second half.

“At the start we were playing it out and we were getting through them, and I thought we were doing really well, but we lost the goal and then we lost our way a bit. Towards the end of the second half, we found our way back again and we’re just disappointed not to get the win.”

McKay’s goal was certainly richly deserved for the play the Light Blues had up to that point, and while naturally focusing on the team matter, he believes getting in to such positions is something he needs to do more of.

He added: “It’s a great strike from Joe, which the keeper has spilled. I keep getting told to follow in, and luckily enough I was there for it.

“I think I need to add a lot more goals to my game, and I’ve been saying that since last season too. At the end of the day though, the three points is the most important thing.”

Gers now move on to play Celtic on Saturday, with McKay saying: “It will be my first Old Firm game at Ibrox for me to play in, so hopefully we can get the win.”
