BRUNO ALVES was disappointed that the Gers went two goals behind to Motherwell in the first half of today’s game.
The Portuguese centre half spoke to RangersTV after the match where he said that the team needs to be better, despite battling back from two down to earn a point at Fir Park.
He said: “It’s disappointing because we want to win in every game. We were down by two but then we managed to get two back to draw the game.
“We expected three points but we have a draw and we will keep working hard to win the next games.
“I think we took too much time to adapt, they came in very strong. After we adapted, I think we controlled the game and in the second half, I felt that we could score another time.
“I think that we can and should do better. We are Rangers and we need to win every game.”
The Light Blues went into the half time break two goals down after Curtis Main and Alan Campbell scored in quick succession to make it 2-0 early int he match.
Alves said that Graeme Murty challenged his squad at the break to raise their performance and there was a distinct change for the second period.
He continued: “He told us that the first half can’t happen, we can’t conceded two goals in such a short time. He pushed us and motivated us to make a better second half.
“I think the message was correct and we kept working very hard.”
Alves continued to play at the centre of defence alongside Russell Martin, something that he says he is enjoying.
He said: “I feel good playing with him, he is very experienced and we talk a lot. The defensive line and the midfield needs to play better so that the team be better in the future.”
The Gers will welcome Neil McCann’s Dundee to Ibrox next weekend and Alves is hoping that the match will be the first win in a row between now and the end of the season.
“We want to score and not to concede, because that makes us better and stronger. We will keep working right until the end of the season to try to win every game that we have.”
