Foderingham wants Gers to keep moving through gears

Rangers 3-0 Partick Thistle

By Ronnie Esplin

Wes Foderingham is looking for Rangers to keep the momentum going after the international break following their 3-0 win over Partick Thistle on Saturday.

In what was Graeme Murty's second game as stand-in boss following the recent sacking of Portuguese coach Pedro Caixinha, the home side turned in a solid performance to go within three points of second-placed Aberdeen.

Gers' 19-year-old defender Ross McCrorie scored his first goal for the Govan club in the 29th minute when he headed in a cross from wide-man Daniel Candeias, who doubled that lead with a drive after good work by midfielder Jason Holt.

Midfielder Josh Windass added a third at the start of the second half to make it two wins out of two for the Ibrox club's head development coach Murty, who finds himself caretaker manager for the second time this year.

The domestic games stop for the international break, when Scotland will play Holland in a friendly at Pittodrie next Thursday, and goalkeeper Foderingham is looking to get back on track against Hamilton when the Ladbrokes Premiership resumes.

He said: "We will be looking to get three points from that game as well so hopefully we can just keep the momentum and keep winning football matches.

"We scored three good goals and we haven't had too many clean sheets this season so that has been something we have been trying to improve on and thankfully we got one on Saturday.

"He (Murty) did a fantastic job the last time and the boys really enjoy having him in the building, he is a breath of fresh air."
