“That’s the way I want my teams to play, organised and hard to play against.

“We want to be as relentless and ruthless in the box as we can be. That is the way Rangers teams should look.

“It was much more like us, both in and out of possession.

“I’m a lot happier today. As you can see quite clearly what we are trying to do.

“We are trying to be more organised at times and we are still trying to fine-tune that.

“We are still waiting to have a full squad and be fully settled so we will get better.

“I thought we showed a lot of quality today and we created a lot.

“James (Tavernier) had a good chance at the end and it could have been one or two more.

“Going forward we looked really dangerous. We have come away from home and got three important points which is the main thing.”
