Murty maintains changed mindset helped prevent another reversal

Motherwell 2 Rangers 2

By Andy Newport

Graeme Murty denied Rangers are suffering an Old Firm hangover despite seeing them slip up for the third game running.

Gers had to mount a second half comeback against Motherwell on Saturday to avoid a hat-trick of consecutive top-flight league defeats for the first time since October 2000.

But they could only claim a 2-2 draw as James Tavernier and James Murphy cancelled out early Curtis Main and Allan Campbell strikes for Well.

It means the Ibrox side have taken just one point from the last nine available following defeats to Celtic and Kilmarnock.

But Murty insists his team's latest disappointment has nothing to do with last month's morale-sapping 3-2 loss to Brendan Rodgers' 10-man Hoops at Ibrox.

"No, it's down to this game, we just didn't deal with Motherwell's threat," he said. "It's nothing to do with any previous game, we just didn't deal with a very specific area of trouble and it caused us problems.

"We changed mindset rather than tactics in the second half and dealt with it much better."

Gers struggled to cope with the raw physicality presented by Well striker Main.

And defender Bruno Alves admits his side need to find a way get to grips with the threat posed by their opponents.

"We need to work harder and not concede so many goals," he said. "We need to adapt faster to what was going on in the first half. We adjusted and changed the behaviour in the second half.

"We must try to work harder until the end of the season to try to win all the games that we have."
