Rangers ace urging fans to make Ibrox return

Cowdenbeath 0-0 Rangers

By Ronnie Esplin

Nicky Law hopes a full Ibrox against Queen of the South tomorrow night will belatedly signal the start of Rangers' revival.

A dreadful goalless draw at Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Championship on Saturday dampened some of the enthusiasm which enveloped the Light Blue legions after Dave King's consortium, including Paul Murray and John Gilligan, wrestled control from the old board at an extraordinary general meeting on Friday.

The Govan club have won just three games out of nine since Kenny McDowall took over from Ally McCoist in a caretaker capacity in December and sit three points behind second-placed Hibernian having played two games less, with leaders Hearts 20 points clear.

Law is looking for a massive crowd to come along against the Doonhamers where Rangers will try to get their promotion prospects back on track.

The Gers midfielder said: "I'm delighted for the fans at the boardroom changes because they've been waiting a long time for that and I believe most of them are delighted with the outcome.

"I just hope it brings the fans back and they are back for us on Tuesday and we can push on.

"When I first came there were 40,000 every week. They've been staying away but it seems like it will be a full house this time.

"The change of boss has been tough but we hope the positivity coming out of the club on Friday can translate onto the field."
