St. Mirren manager Jim Goodwin plans to “frustrate the life” out of Rangers when he takes his side to Ibrox on Wednesday night – and joked he might “park two buses” against the Gers.
Goodwin’s side head to Ibrox as the Scottish Premiership resumes following the winter break and the St. Mirren legend knows his men face an unenviable task against the Light Blues.
After seeing his side make it through to the next round of the Scottish Cup after a hard-fought win over Broxburn, Goodwin admitted he’ll follow the East of Scotland Premier Division side’s approach against the Buddies when they make the short journey to Ibrox.
“Wednesday night will be completely different. It’ll be a full house, the place will be noisy and it’ll be a great experience for the boys who haven’t been there,” Goodwin said after his side’s win over Broxburn.
“We’ll go and try and frustrate the life out of them and see where we get to. We’ll be taking Broxburn’s approach – we might park two buses!”
The Buddies are tenth in the Premiership and Gerrard’s side will be hoping to pick up where they left off with last month’s Old Firm win and get three points on the board.
Rangers can’t afford the sort of mistakes which ended their title push last year and will need to perform much better than in Friday’s win over Stranraer in the cup.
There’s no reason why the Light Blues shouldn’t pick up the win against St. Mirren though and keep pushing in in their bid to win the title for the first time since 2011.
