BARRIE McKAY insists Rangers’ focus must quickly shift to the games ahead after wrapping up the Championship title last night.
The 1-0 win over Dumbarton saw the Light Blues return to the top flight of Scottish football after four years in the lower leagues, with McKay kicking off that journey with the first goal against Peterhead back in August 2012.
Speaking last night, McKay told RangersTV.tv: “It’s good and the lads are all buzzing, but we still need to take it one game at a time and not stop. For me, it is a great personal achievement to have helped get the club back to where it belongs.
“In the past couple of years, I’ve been out on loan, but it’s helped me develop as a player to get me to where I am now.
“We still have some big games to come, and in the league run-in, we want to get maximum points from those games, and see where we can finish.”
McKay is one of only a handful of players to have seen the journey through from beginning to end, and while delighted to see it through, he knows work will need to be done in order for Rangers to enjoy success in the top flight next year.
He continued: “You always dream of it. When we first went down we wanted to get back up as fast as possible, and obviously we were disappointed last year, but now we are back.
“Next season we are going to go and compete, and keep playing the same way we have been playing. We need to keep that going and challenge the best teams in that league.”
