Rangers in-form Daly heaps praise on team-mates

JON Daly has paid tribute to his Rangers team-mates for ensuring his debut season at Ibrox has been a major success so far.

The striker has already netted 18 goals to put himself within touching distance of his own personal best of 22 for a campaign.

The Irishman is ahead of schedule in terms of his own expectations at the Glasgow giants and was keen to acknowledge the role played by the rest of the players.

He said: "When I spoke to the manager about signing for the club, he talked to me about getting balls into the box and that's what my game needs.

"I need balls into the box, I need plenty of service.

"I've got to credit the boys, they have been fantastic for me this year and they have really given me great service.

"Thankfully, I've been in there to put them away.

"Every year is the same, I try to set myself little targets.

"I'm probably slightly ahead of where I want to be, which is great.

"Hopefully I can continue that and finish the rest of the season off the way I've started."

Daly might have been happy to offer the credit he feels his Gers team-mates deserve, but he insisted no-one at the club is seeking praise for enjoying an impressive run of results.

Ally McCoist's men have won every single Scottish League One game to date and head into today's clash with Stranraer aiming to extend their winning streak to 21 games.
