Hamilton manager Brian Rice has lavished praise on Rangers after watching the Ibrox giants brush aside the Accies in  yesterday’s Scottish Premiership clash.
Steven Gerrard’s side romped to a 5-0 win and Rice admits his side would have been unlikely to stop the Gers.

The Accies boss was impressed with the “fantastic” way the Gers moved the ball around and dragged his side all over the pitch.
“The biggest thing for me today was Rangers’ ball retention, the way they moved the ball around, moved us all across the pitch, was fantastic,”
Rice told the Evening Times.

“Could we have made it more difficult? Yeah. Could we have stopped them? Maybe not.”

The Gers were superb in the first 45 but lacked the same intensity after the break.
After picking up back-to-back 5-0 wins, Gerrard’s side look to have hit form as the season enters a critical stage.

With an Old Firm clash looming next month and a Scottish Cup quarter-final to come, every game is massive now for the Gers.
Closing the eight-point gap at the top of the table may prove to be too much – and the Gers simply can’t afford any more slip ups.
Dundee are next up when they visit Ibrox on Wednesday before the Gers travel to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen in the cup this weekend.
