Rangers defender Filip Helander has opened up on his disappointment as the Light Blues conceded against Hibernian as they close in on the British record for fewest goals conceded in a 38-game season.

Kevin Nisbet’s second-half header was the eleventh goal the Gers have conceded this term in the league, leaving them four ahead of the current record of 15 set by Chelsea in 2004/05.

The Swedish colossus was pleased to come away with the three points after strikes from Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent secured the win but the defender wasn’t happy at losing the clean sheet after a dominant performance.

“We fight to keep that clean sheet and we didn’t,” Helander said, [BBC].

“We are disappointed with that, of course, but when you win, that is obviously most important. Our victory record here at Ibrox is nice.


“Most of the game we did well, but when you concede a goal, you can’t be too happy about it. It is something that we have got to look at what happened there.”

Nisbet became only the third opposition player to score at Ibrox in the league this season, joining Motherwell’s Callum Lang and Dundee United striker Marc McNulty in netting against the Light Blues – who still have four league games remaining.
