Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister has hailed the “fantastic” Gers support after they turned out in numbers for this afternoon’s 1-0 win over  Ross County in Dingwall.

McAllister paid tribute to fans who travelled the four hours from Glasgow – with many more making an even longer trip – as Ryan Kent’s goal sealed a narrow win.

The Gers number two lauded the fans at home and away, and admits they make going to games like today’s a “wee bit special.”

“It’s four hours up from Glasgow and we have fans who come from further south than Glasgow – it’s fantastic,” McAllister told Rangers TV.

“The away fans and the fans at home – we can’t fault the fans. Their support has always been there and it’s a wee bit special when you jump in the car and you’ve got to make that journey for a 12 o’clock kick-off – hats off to them.”

With two home games coming up – and two pretty massive ones at that – Ibrox should be rocking over the coming week as Leverkusen and Celtic visit Edmiston Drive.

The support continuing to show up in such fantastic numbers despite the poor form is a testament to the loyalty of the Gers fanbase.
