NIKOLA KATIC insists Rangers are ‘still in the game’ despite a 4-3 loss to Spartak Moscow in Russia this evening.
The Croatian defender knows Gers have two hard games to come at home to Villarreal before they travel to Rapid Vienna, and speaking to RangersTV in the Otkritie Arena, he said: “We are still in the game – we have five points and we have Villarreal and also a hard game away against Rapid who are quite similar to Spartak.
“So we are still in the game and we need to win these games to go to the Last 32.”
Katic was unhappy with what he described as ‘four stupid goals’ and called on his teammates to rally for the visit of Motherwell to Ibrox on Sunday.
He added: “It was a really unlucky game for us and we conceded four stupid goals. We had the chance to take three points here and make a big step to the Last 32.
“But, it is what it is. We need to move from here and return for the game on Sunday.
“We had a deal at half-time to try and take a clean sheet from the second half, but we lost two goals in two minutes and I don’t know what to say about that.”
