Ryan Kent scored a stunning strike in Rangers’ 4-2 victory against Ross County yesterday that was enough to keep Steven Gerrard and his side four points clear at the top of the table.

This win was vital to keep the momentum going and head into the international break with some breathing space between the Gers and second place.

It was a positive performance from the team, despite conceding the first goal. Rangers battled back well and deserved all three points.

The manager was in a buoyant mood as he spoke to Rangers TV after the match and provided his thoughts on the game.

Goals galore

“We are entertaining our supporters, that’s the main thing from a going forward point of view,” Gerrard said, referring to the fact the side has scored ten goals in our last two league matches.

This welcome return of goals will be vital as we keep applying pressure to the rest of the teams chasing us. That said, the manager wasn’t happy with conceding yet again.

“In general, we need to stop conceding sloppy goals and get back to clean sheets” suggested Gerrard.

Whilst this is certainly an important issue, if Rangers keep winning matches then sloppy defensive displays could be forgotten about.

Return of key player

Arguably the best news over the previous week has been the return of Ryan Kent. The club has sorely missed him and his ability to change matches with a moment of genius, evident on both Thursday and yesterday.

“He came back in a top place, looked really dangerous in midweek, and had a strong 60 minutes yesterday, his goal was world-class” states Steven Gerrard.

Steven Gerrard also touched on the international break before signing of, alluding to the fact that “it’s all about Rangers, club football is bread and butter”.

Hopefully, everyone who is away on national team duty can come back injury-free as Rangers embark on a tough festive run-in.
