MARK WARBURTON was disappointed his players could only draw against Livingston and admitted they didn’t show enough quality in the final third to win the game.
For all Rangers’ possession they were unable to build on Jason Holt’s excellent 22nd minute opener which allowed Myles Hippolyte to equalise six minutes into the second half.
The visitors kept pushing for a second goal but they came up against a hard-working, organised backline with Marc McCallum in Livi’s goal also in inspired form.
After the final whistle Warburton said:“I didn’t think we showed real quality in the second half. We huffed and puffed a bit but didn’t really create enough clear cut chances.
“So first half was good, we started off really well and got the goal. We needed to come out and be really dominant and they scored and we were scrappy, a bit loose in possession.
“Yes, we had lots of the ball but didn’t really hurt them enough as we should have done.
The manager continued: “We had a few chances, of course we did, and we had a lot of the ball but were we clinical enough? Maybe not. Did we show enough quality in the final third, enough guile? I don’t think we did today.
“Other games we have shown a lot of quality and not got our rewards. Today, we needed to be a little bit better in that final third.”
The Rangers players cut dejected figures as they walked up the tunnel at the end of the game which only highlights their desire to win.
Warburton added: “It does and they set their standards very high. They felt they should have won the game but the fact is we didn’t, and you saw the reaction from the opponent.
“Credit to them, they worked really hard and got men behind the ball, they showed good quality. So all credit to them, we just lacked a bit of spark today.”
