NICKY LAW was critical of his side’s display against Stenhousemuir and believes the players only have themselves to blame after they drew at home for just the second time in League One this season.

Law netted his 11th goal in 2013/14 to make it 1-1 at half time, the midfielder curling home a terrific shot on 35 minutes after Sean Dickson had given the Warriors a shock lead.

The Light Blues however were unable to dominate the second period and although they scored two more goals through Ross McMillan’s og and Jon Daly’s fine header a double from Stenny’s Sean Higgins made the scoreline 3-3 at the final whistle.

Speaking to the media after a dramatic 90 minutes at Ibrox, Law believes a bit of slackness has crept into Rangers’ play at home with Arbroath and Brechin City also finding the net on recent league visits to the Stadium.

He said: “I would say it was down to ourselves more than anything today, we can’t concede three goals at home to anybody and expect to win the game.

“We obviously scored three and that should be more than enough to win the game. They’ve had three crosses into the box and got three goals so from our own point of view we are certainly not pleased with ourselves or the result.

“It’s a bit of everything, giving the ball away needlessly and not stopping crosses coming into the box, people getting free headers and free shots. It was mistake after mistake really and it’s just not good enough.

“I said to big Jon he’s not had one free header all game and they have had two or three. As you would expect the manager wasn’t happy, he was quite angry and rightly so.

“We’re in again tomorrow and I’m sure we’ll watch the game through but we know ourselves it’s sloppy and slack.

“It’s been coming in our last two of three home games. If you look at our away record we aren’t giving goals away but for some reason we are doing that here.

“I don’t know if we are nervy with the crowd getting edgy, I don’t know. But there’s a lot of slackness creeping into our game especially here at home.

“We should be wiping the floor with teams and that’s no disrespect to them. We have players here that are too good for this level and we certainly shouldn’t be drawing at home and conceding three.”
