ROSS MCCRORIE says Rangers are determined to win against Kilmarnock this weekend to complete a clean sweep of post split wins.
The Gers have won their last six matches in a row and a defeat of Killie at Rugby Park will be the first time the Light Blues have done so since the split was implemented.
Speaking at a Rangers Charity Foundation event this week, McCrorie said: “It would be a great achievement for us and we’d want to continue that form in to next season. If we can finish on a high it’ll be great for team morale.
“The full team want to finish on a high and then come back for preseason ready and raring to go.
“I’m sure that over the summer the gaffer will bring in a few additions and it’ll make the quality in the team even higher, so we’re looking forward to next season.
“We’re obviously disappointed with the end of this season here, so we’ll look to rectify that at the start of next season.”
The atmosphere inside a sold out Ibrox was fantastic during the win over Celtic on Sunday and McCrorie spoke glowingly about the dedication and noise of the fans.
He continued: “The fans have been outstanding all season, the backing that they have given us has been tremendous and you can see that the ticket sales have been soaring all season.
“I think that the season tickets are up for renewal on Monday and we can just hope that the fans come back in their numbers again. We need the fans and they’ve been tremendous this season.”
There was a special moment at the end of the match on Sunday, as the players and their families took to the pitch to show their appreciation to the supporters for their support during the season and McCrorie certainly enjoyed it.
He continued: “The Union Bears and the full stadium! It was great to have the families and the kids out to soak up the atmosphere, it really was a great day.”
McCrorie was a late substitute in the match against Celtic and whilst he enjoyed the moment, focus has already shifted towards the final match of the season, against Kilmarnock on Sunday.
“Everyone was buzzing to be honest, but we’ve got another important game coming up against Kilmarnock at the weekend, so we’re looking towards that now.
“In the game at the weekend, the boys were outstanding. Every man in the team was great to be honest and we stuck to our game plan very well.”
McCrorie visited Gowanbank Primary School in Glasgow today to present a £25,000 cheque for UNICEF from the Rangers Charity Foundation. The school is one of over a thousand in Scotland to be part of Unicef’s Rights Respecting Schools Programme.
This donation marks the culmination of this season’s fundraising for UNICEF, the Foundation’s long-term International Charity Partner, and will enable the world’s leading children’s charity to provide educational opportunities for children caught up in natural disasters and conflicts.
The donation could purchase ten temporary school tents, ten school kits and ten childhood development kits plus hundreds of school bags, footballs and skipping ropes to help hundreds of school and nursery age children receive an education in an emergency situation. The remaining funds will also go towards the Children’s Emergency Fund, which allows UNICEF to respond to emergency situations quickly and effectively.
Unicef UK’s Children’s Emergency Fund enables UNICEF to provide a rapid response for children affected by emergencies, whenever and wherever they hit. This means that UNICEF is able to respond immediately with supplies and services to help children in crisis, without having to wait to launch a public appeal.
