Rangers goalkeeper Neil Alexander admits they have not come close to keeping a clean sheet in recent weeks as he ponders how to improve their form.
Rangers have conceded goals in each of their last five Irn-Bru Third Division games, culminating in their shock 2-1 defeat by Annan at Ibrox on Saturday.
Alexander, whose team remain 17 points clear after Queen’s Park lost 2-0 at Berwick last night, explained: “I have high standards and I take pride in keeping clean sheets but at the moment we are not even looking like doing that.
“We are giving the opposition chances right, left and centre and we are conceding goals that in years gone by we would not have conceded.
“It’s a head-scratcher. What are we doing differently? What are we not doing right? So that’s why we will work hard in training, we will watch videos and make sure we change things and cut these things out.
“The thing is we need to score at least twice in matches to win games because we are conceding and teams gone by didn’t have to do that.”
Rangers are looking to bounce back at Elgin on Saturday after winning one of their last three matches.
Alexander said: “Sometimes complacency creeps in - although I would like to think it didn’t. We are so far ahead and it is virtually job done but we are not over the line yet.
“We have a fairly inexperienced team in terms of winning championships and we all know that last Saturday was not good enough from start to finish.
“It’s not acceptable for Rangers players to perform like that but hopefully we can win this weekend, things will be forgotten and we can move one step closer to winning the league.”
