Our formation was a mystery to me, admits Rangers winger McKay

By Andy Newport

Barrie McKay admitted he had no idea how his Rangers side were lining up by the end of their madcap draw with Motherwell.

Injury and illness wrecked manager Pedro Caixinha’s tactics for the visit of Stephen Robinson’s men.

With his side a goal down to Louis Moult’s opener, the new Gers boss was forced to use all three of his substitutions at half-time, with Lee Wallace, Clint Hill and Lee Hodson all coming off.

New arrival Joe Garner levelled the tie, with McKay — assuming an unfamiliar wing-back role — explaining: “I don’t think I’ve been involved in a situation where we made three changes at the break. As footballers you have to be ready for these things and you just need to get on with it.

“We didn’t really know what formation we were playing — we’d two central midfielders playing centre-half so it was obviously a change. First half we were a wee bit off the pace but second half I thought we did enough to get the win, we just couldn’t get that second goal.”
