JON Flanagan believes Rangers could have scored even more than the five goals they put past St Johnstone at Ibrox this afternoon.

The Gers tore the Saints apart and Flanagan admits they had been working on producing the dominant attacking display on the training field.

Rangers had five different goal scorers on the scoresheet and summer recruit Flanagan says Steven Gerrard has inspired every single Light Blues’ man to believe in themselves on matchday.

Speaking to RangersTV after the victory the 25-year-old said: “The lads were excellent today, us defenders and Greegsy (Allan McGregor) are just a bit gutted we conceded a goal but that is football, it happens. We will take the win and we are delighted with that.

“The result against Villarreal was brilliant and then to come into today, I think everyone looked sharp, there was no fatigue in there.

“The main aim, off the back of the result on Thursday, was to come here and get three points.

“On Thursday night the lads were fantastic and I think before we went we would have taken a draw there.

“We have been working on what you saw out there today on the training ground; passages of play, going forward, little combinations and I think that showed today. We looked fantastic and I think we could have scored even more.

“We are always confident, the manager has instilled belief in our game and in the way we play.

“I am loving it here, since I came through the door, since I have been getting back playing and into the team with a bit of a run of games I have loved it under the new management so far and with all the lads.

“I think everyone is really enjoying it; we just need to keep this going and keep getting three points on the board.”

Flanagan got the nod ahead of Borna Barisic for the Premiership win, a victory which propelled his side into second and he is hoping to be picked again for the League Cup quarter-final in midweek.

The full-back could feature when Ayr United come to Ibrox on Wednesday evening, the winner will go into the hat for the semi-finals at Hampden in October.

He continued: “We have another big game on Wednesday and we need to be focussed for that now.

“We are going into Wednesday confident, we have had a busy week building up to it with all the games but that isn’t in our minds. We will be in tomorrow recovering and we will be ready for Wednesday.”
