Stephen Craigan: Are Rangers losing their appetite?

Published 10/01/2013

So, are the Rangers players allowed a slip up like the 1-1 draw with the 10 men of Elgin on Saturday at Ibrox?

After winning 11 league games in a row everyone thought it was just a case of Rangers turning up and winning by whatever margin they wanted to.

Football unfortunately doesn't always work that way and it often gives you little reminders that you have to earn everything you get in the game and it can bring you back down to earth swiftly.

To be fair to Ally McCoist and his players it took them a while to adjust to their new league surroundings but their recent run of victories shows they have quality way beyond division three.

The question posed to them all now is do they have the appetite to keep on winning games and putting in performances when the league title already looks over?

As always every game will be scrutinised and the Rangers fans will still be as demanding as supporters pay their money and always want their side to win.
