CONNOR Goldson says Rangers’ players have faced up to their disappointing result against Hearts.
The Gers vice-captain and his teammates had a post-match debrief in which he said they couldn’t accept not doing the basics right or not winning the fight on the pitch, no matter what the result of a game.
Rangers now have the chance to pick up a crucial three points against Ross County at Ibrox this Wednesday.
Speaking to the media Goldson said: “It was what we were expecting; we knew we didn’t perform on the day and that the result and performance wasn’t good enough.
“When everything goes well you watch clips of the team and you doing well, so when things are bad you have to take the criticism as it comes.
“The Stranraer game there are a lot of people behind the ball, we won the game and we had controlled the game.
“The St Mirren game I thought was very similar but at the end of the game we were disappointed in the changing room that we didn’t do more and that we didn’t perform better but we got three points.
“We went into Hearts away knowing from the game earlier in the season it was going to be a tough game but that we needed to turn up, needed to be brave and it might not be the prettiest game.
“Like we said in that changing room after the game some days you’re not going to be able to beat everybody in a football match.
“But the one thing we can’t accept is losing the physical side of a game, getting run over, losing first and second balls and I think that was what happened on Sunday.”
Goldson was asked if Steven Gerrard’s claim he had “Seven or eight passengers” in his team against Hearts would jolt the squad into action this week.
He continued: “It has to. We have a game again tomorrow, another big game and another league game that gets us three points.
“We all need to be ready to go again because there is no time to sit and dwell on that game.
“We have another three games in a week, we need to go and get nine points and we know that in the changing room.”
