Rangers goalkeeper urges fans to get behind club

By Gavin McCafferty

Rangers goalkeeper Lee Robinson is looking forward to hearing the backing of a packed stadium rather than the sound of protests against the board on the street outside the home changing room.

"It's not great to hear that outside, but you have to focus on the game and do your best," Robinson said.

"Ibrox is a great stadium and I don't think it looks right when it's half full or some games it's been 12 or 15,000. It deserves a lot better and the fact they are coming back can only be a great thing for the club."

The former Queen of the South stopper has noticed a definite change of mood since the shareholder vote was announced on Friday.

"It's been difficult lately for all the lads but it's a lot happier place to be," he said.

"It was all negative around the club all the time. You are a player and are paid to do your job and I just want to work hard and do as well as I can but when you are hearing negative things about your club, it is quite hard for a player.

"We've got no excuses, you have to work hard every day and do your best on a Saturday but the negativity is difficult.

"Everyone seems to have had a boost, especially the fans, and it's a better place to be now."
