Rangers assistant manager Kenny McDowall has said that he wants a repeat of the performance the players put into the match against Ibrox against Heart of Midlothian as well.

Rangers will be hosting Heart of Midlothian at Ibrox during the weekend in a crunch match.

Rangers have been facing one problem after the other recently. They have not only been troubled off the pitch, but on the pitch as well. Only three points separate Rangers from Motherwell in the race for the second position, while Celtic are a distant first with a 21 point advantage over Rangers.

Realistically, Motherwell are the competition for Rangers right now. It represents a great fall for the mighty Scottish club, who were not long ago playing in the Champions League. It remains to be seen if a club like Rangers will cease to exist at all after the Rangers chairman recently said that he expects the club to be liquidated in the future.

The club was put into administration recently and it has been revealed that around £ 1 million needs to be saved every month in order to prevent the club from going bust. Rangers won their last away match against Inverness 4-1, which is a performance that Kenny McDowall wants right now.

“The players were really disappointed for letting the supporters down against Killie. Things that had gone on during the week had really taken their toll. We never really got going about our business in the first half but with 10 men in the second, we played very well. After losing the goal, it was too big a climb for us to overturn the scoreline and that was hard to take,” the assistant manager said after the Inverness match. Heart of Midlothian will be looking to cement their sixth position place.
