NICKY LAW says that Rangers were disappointed with the result the first time round against Killie but hopes that the team spirit in the squad will carry them through tomorrow.

The Gers were held to a goalless draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox in the first match between the sides and they will go head to head again tomorrow night at Rugby Park.

Midfielder Law says that the squad felt they merited the win for the way they played last time, he said: “We felt generally in the game that we were the better side, the side pushing for the win.

“We were disappointed that we didn’t do that in the end and obviously now we need to go and try and do that are their place.”

Law spoke to RangersTV last week and said that the fighting team spirit amongst the squad at present is great this season and that small team bonding sessions are key to fostering that togetherness.

“It was mixed feelings about it, but we got together as a team on Sunday (after the last Kilmarnock game) and went together for some food.

“Spirits are high still and we are confident that we can get through to the next round of the Cup.”

He continued: “A lot of lads have spoken about how good the team spirit is amongst the group and we planned that we would go out together on the Sunday and watch the football with some food to help build team spirit.

“There’s a lot of new players at the club this season and we’ve had a few new ones come in this January too, so it’s good to get to know them better.

“It’s a great help and I’m sure it’ll be more help as we move into the final months of the season.”
