Ross County skipper gives damning verdict on Rangers players, highlights weak points
By Emma Sanders
Ross County skipper Andrew Davies believes Rangers defence is too open and they will get beat punished by strong sides.
Davies scored for the Staggies as they drew 1-1 with Rangers on Sunday afternoon and the defender admitted his side were slightly disappointed they could not get the win.
It was a frustrating day for Mark Warburton’s side as they were unable to break down bottom-of-the-table Ross County and Davies claimed they will get punished by the league’s top teams.
“I feel that defensively you can get at Rangers, I really do. At the back that’s where their weakest point is. With Rangers, they give you chances. Against good teams, they’ll get punished,” said Davies, according to the Daily Record.
“They keep trying to pass their way out. That’s obviously how their manager wants them to play. But it’s risk football. They are taking risks in bad areas of the pitch.

“Defensively, the way they organise themselves, they’re open. When you look at Aberdeen and Hearts, they’re very solid, not open.”
Clint Hill opened the scoring in Dingwall for but County had a number of chances at the end to seal the winner following Davies’ equaliser.
As a result, Rangers slipped to third position in the Scottish Premiership, as Aberdeen moved into second place, behind league leaders Celtic who are now 11 points clear at the top.
The Gers have already suffered defeat against Aberdeen this season and were thrashed 5-1 by their Old Firm rivals in September before suffering a semi-final cup defeat against Celtic last month too.
They have won just one of their last four fixtures in all competitions and Sunday’s draw was the Gers’ fifth this season, as they have struggled to mount a title challenge.
