Rangers manager Stuart McCall says that the players should avoid silly bookings between now and end of the campaign.

He says that this could be a major dent in the club’s hopes of finishing in the play-off places. Upon the arrival of McCall, the form of the club has substantially improved. They went on a run of three consecutive victories before suffering a thrashing at the hands of Queen of South. The 3-0 loss is a major downer for the team in terms of their push for promotion. More importantly, bookings received in this match could come back to haunt them in the last few games of the campaign.

They next take on Raith Rovers at home in a match that could be crucial for the club. Since there are only five games left in the campaign, McCall says that any unnecessary bookcase prevented in this matches could help him retain a familiar starting line-up. This would in turn improve the confidence of the players, which is already on the up. Since Heart of Midlothian have a huge advantage compared to the rest of the teams in the Scottish second league, McCall is ideally targeting a play-off place. There will be four play-off matches in the campaign.

“I didn’t know what Bilel was booked for but Kenny Black told me it was a reaction to their fans.I understand anger and frustration at the result but as long as he is only punching the ground and nobody else.We can’t afford silly bookings at this stage. We have lads just a game away from suspension. If it’s for tackles okay. But we can’t afford silly bookings for talking to the crowd or taking the shirt off or backchat. I don’t like that, it’s lack of discipline,” said the Rangers manager.
