Docherty delivers verdict on Rangers form, says how fans have helped
Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty believes his club are building momentum after five wins on the spin and admitted the Gers “just love scoring goals.”
The Light Blues have scored 17 times in their last four games as they look to mount a late surge for the Scottish title after closing the gap to leaders Celtic to six points.
The Ibrox side have won eight of their nine games since the winter break with the Ibrox defeat by Hibs the only black mark in 2018 for Graeme Murty’s side.
Docherty thinks the Gers coaching staff have the Light Blues squad “loving” their football just now after winning their last five games.
“I think momentum is a big thing and we are gathering that at the moment. We just want to keep going and if we can take this momentum into every game then fantastic. We just need to keep building,” Docherty said, as quoted by The Herald.
“It is great for us to bounce back after the Hibs disappointment with five wins. That is big for us. The manager and the coaching staff have got us set up correctly and we are all just loving playing football at the moment.

“You could see against Hearts on Saturday and the first half against St Johnstone on Tuesday how comfortable we were. No disrespect, to St Johnstone, but we didn’t feel under pressure. They had a few free-kicks, but every attack we go on I feel we are going to score and that is big.
“I think everybody feels the same, that every shot is going to go in for us. I think the crowd anticipate it as well and can sense it and that spurs us on. We just love scoring goals.”
Docherty joined the Light Blues last month from Hamilton as Graeme Murty and director of football overhauled the squad inherited from Pedro Caixinha.
The 21-year-old has blown Rangers fans away with his performances for the Gers since his arrival with the Scotland Under-21 star and on-loan midfielder Sean Goss have built up an impressive partnership in central midfield.
Docherty could make his first Old Firm appearance for his boyhood heroes when the Light Blues welcome bitter rivals Celtic to Ibrox on March 11th in a match which will have huge repercussions on the title race.
