Having struck his first goal for Rangers in the friendly win against Sacramento Republic, defender Darren McGregor has said this isn't the time to get away despite his strong start to life at Rangers, because he knows he has a long way to go yet.
Speaking to the Official Site following his leveller in our last match, the 28 year old former St Mirren defender explained.
'I was delighted to score. I've come close to doing that in previous games against Buckie and Ventura so it was great to get off the mark. A lot of credit needs to go to Lewis Macleod for the delivery. He helped set up the second as well and when you get a delivery like that, you just need to get your head on it.'
McGregor goes on to add that competition for places, even at this stage of pre season, is really good in the dressing room, but so is the support from those players who miss out in any given selection.
'(Competition) is obviously going to make it difficult to get into the team but if I put in performances like that and hopefully keep ticking over I'll give the gaffer something to think about. Hopefully by the time the season starts I'll be in contention but I don't want to get too far in front of myself.'
Kenny Miller was also amongst the interviews following the game, and his main focus was on getting another run out under his belt, especially as this time round he built up to the 90 minute mark after having shorter run outs in previous games following his return to the club.
He also talked about how the team are slowly starting to find their rhythm and some form now following on from earlier defeats that were spanners in the works, but he feels all of the newbies now are starting to find the feet - and like McGregor - starting to show their worth ahead of our Championship campaign.
