Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield has admitted the Gers need to be more clinical in their Scottish Cup replay with Kilmarnock but praised the Rugby Park side for their performance in last night’s 0-0 draw.

Killie made an impressive job of shutting down the Gers attack and limited the number of clear cut chances Steven Gerrard’s side created.

Arfield admits the Light Blues must show that killer edge but insists the replay at Ibrox will be a “different game.”

“The most important thing is to still be in the cup competition and be in the hat for the next round,” Arfield told Rangers TV.

“I think we need to touch on it and give Kilmarnock a big amount of credit for how they played.

“They make it as hard as possible and for us, we just tried to get it down at times to start to play but they are incredibly good at making it stuffy and making it compact.

“We need to get shots on target, we need to break teams down and I think it will be a different game when we get them back at Ibrox.”

James Tavernier’s first-half penalty miss was the best chance Rangers had to break the deadlock.

Gerrard’s side struggled to get through Killie’s stubborn defence as they looked to book their place in the next round.

After a recent league defeat at Rugby Park, Gerrard will have been hoping from more from his squad.

The two sides will meet again at Ibrox on February 20th to find out who reaches the last eight of the cup.
