RYAN JACK cut a frustrated figure as he walked off the Ibrox turf today after Rangers suffered a disappointing defeat to St Johnstone.
Graeme Murty’s men got off to the perfect start when Alfredo Morelos scored with just five minutes on the clock, but Blair Alston equalised quickly with a terrific strike to silence the home support.
Second-half goals from striker Denny Johnstone and substitute Graham Cummins secured all three points for the visitors, and Jack admits Rangers’ performance was poor.
He told RangersTV: “It’s frustrating again that we go ahead and we have a good start, a bright start with everything we spoke about before the game.
We come out the traps quick, get the goal and settle everything down, settle the fans down and get them on side and from then on in, from really when we scored, we stopped doing the basics, started forcing things, started playing long balls and we weren’t winning enough second balls. It just wasn’t good enough.
“Everybody talks about momentum and everything is brilliant when you are winning games.
“We beat Aberdeen twice and there’s no doubt we played really well. So how can we turn up against Aberdeen, a double header, play the way we played, pretty much played them off the park at times, and then we turn up today and we are just not at it?
“As a player myself, and the rest of the players, we need take responsibility for that. It’s your own pride, it’s your own game that you have to get yourself up for.
“Today, as I said, as a team and individually, we just weren’t at the races.”
