Rangers, who are second place in the Premiership table, recently defeated Derek McInnes’ men midweek. The performance left Coach Graeme Murty pleased after the clash at Ibrox. He is hoping his players replicate such performances when they face Ross County this weekend.
Both sides met recently in December when Owen Coyle led the County squad to Glasgow. Alfredo Morelos and Danny Wilson scored a goal each in the second half. Craig Curran had scored in the first ten minutes but the double from Rangers ensured the game ended 2-1 in their favour. “We’re not going to look at the relative position, we’re going to look at them on their merits and pay them the respect that they are due because we know any team in the league can cause us problems if we don’t hit the levels we are capable of,” Murty said respectfully ahead of the County fixture.
The manager added that he has warned his team to see every opponent in the league as a tough one. He wants consistent top level football from the team, asking that the players perform like they did against Celtic, Aberdeen and others. He says “the minimum standard” is the level they reached against Aberdeen. Murty wants the team to ensure they keep that minimum standard when they play the ‘low ballers’ on Sunday.
