Struggling Rangers need to find a quick solution for fans, admits Hardie

Rangers 0 Hearts 0

By Andy Newport

Ryan Hardie admits Rangers must come up with quick answers if they want to avoid more difficult questions after dropping points for the second week running.

Gers followed up last weekend's defeat to Hibernian with a frustrating 0-0 draw with Hearts at Ibrox on Saturday.

Now just three games into the season, under-pressure boss Pedro Caixinha is facing fresh doubts over his leadership with his side already five points behind Celtic.

The Ibrox faithful were not shy in letting their manager know how they felt at full-time as a chorus of boos rang round.

Youngster Hardie said: "We're all disappointed because we feel that it's two points dropped. The mood in the dressing room is that we should have all three.

"We played well and dominated possession. So there's real frustration in there. Towards the end we got a few more chances but they were solid, they sat behind the ball and made it hard for us.

"It's up to us to find solutions when teams do that to us because that will be the case for most of the season. If we find the solution, I'm sure the goals will come.

"I can understand the fans booing at the end. At a club like Rangers, the fans expect you to win every week. As a squad we know we need to do that. It's a huge disappointment for us and, even more so, for the fans.

"We can't panic, it's still early in the season. It was a positive performance in terms of dominating the ball. We were just unfortunate not to get the goal."
