Daly wants to be four-midable for Rangers

By Lisa Gray

Rangers 8 Stenousemuir 0: Rangers forward Jon Daly hopes there is plenty more to come from him at Ibrox after breaking his home duck in style with four goals in an 8-0 win over Stenhousemuir.

The Irishman was in unstoppable form in the Scottish League One clash as he netted a hat-trick of headers before helping himself to another goal to claim the first quadruple of his professional career.

And he says he was thrilled to repay the home fans in a 43,877 crowd who watched Saturday's match for their continued backing this season by finally getting off the mark at home.

He said: "You always want to score in front of the home fans. They've been fantastic this year.

"I've got off the mark at home now and hopefully I can carry it on."

Daly admits life at Rangers until now had not been quite as prolific in front of goal as some would have expected, but hopes his haul this weekend will act as a springboard for future games.

He added: "I feel there is a bit more to my game than just goals but I'm not silly, I know strikers are judged on goals.

"I'm the kind of striker who needs service and thankfully I got that in this game.

"I've had it in other games where I've probably left my shooting boots at home.

"I've managed to score goals now and hopefully that will help my confidence and I can go on from here.

"I've scored a few hat-tricks, maybe five or six, but that's the first time I've scored four other than schoolboy football.

"There was great service. I've had a few chances in the last couple of games at Ibrox I've not put away and thankfully in this game they have gone in."

Andy Little, Lee Wallace, David Templeton and Bilel Mohsni were also on the scoresheet for Rangers.
