Rangers manager Graeme Murty believes Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Motherwell can be a “really good thing” for the Light Blues – despite it blowing the race for second-place in the league wide open.

After failing to win for the third game in a row, Murty’s side are now level on points with Aberdeen after playing one game more than the Dons.

Murty insists that coming back from 2-0 down to salvage a point can stand his squad in good stead for the remaining seven games before the end of the season.

“We want to be better,” Murty said, as quoted by STV.

“We want to be moving forward faster than we are. We want to be at the top right now.

“I think if we reflect on today’s lessons, it could be a really good thing for the squad.

“To be 2-0 down to a team that are physically really good, then stand up and come back could stand us in good stead for the challenges to come.”

The Gers face Dundee in the Scottish Premiership next weekend before taking on Celtic at Hampden in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

Football Insider verdict:

Turning the game around from 2-0 will no doubt stand the Gers in good stead but they should never have been in a position to need to come back from 2-0 down in the first place. The Light Blues seem to have a real problem with how they start games and find themselves fighting against the tide. With only seven games left until the end of the season, time is running out for them to show they’ve learned anything from the repeated setbacks this season. The Old Firm clash in two weeks time is going to be make-or-break for the Gers season now.
