'We started poorly' - Foderingham delivers verdict on Rangers win v Hamilton
By James Black
Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham was delighted with his side’s response to going a goal down inside a minute to Hamilton on Friday night – calling it a “brilliant reaction” to win 4-1.
Hamilton took the lead after only 56 seconds as the Gers’ disastrous week looked to be in danger of getting even worse following the Old Firm defeat to Celtic and reports of a major rift in the dressing room.
A three-goal blitz in six minutes turned the game in the Light Blues’ favour as full-back Declan John scored a quick-fire double before Daniel Candeias fired the Gers into a two-goal lead.
The Rangers shotstopper was kept busy by Hamilton’s forwards and saved a penalty from Rakesh Bingham after Ross McCrorie gave the Accies a chance to claw their way back into the game.
Foderingham was happy though that his side didn’t let their heads drop as they fought back for an impressive win.

“We started poorly tonight, the same as we did against Celtic,” Foderingham said to RangersTV, as quoted by Rangers’ official website.
“We could have been a goal down there as well and on another night like tonight we were.
“It was important that we bounced back and made sure that we didn’t go into our shell and we did that.
“We scored goals and three good goals as well in the space of around ten minutes or whatever it was; it was a brilliant reaction.”
