Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso believes the Gers winter break trip to Florida was good for the Gers and has urged his team-mates to keep it up when they return to Scotland.
Cardoso played the full 90 minutes of the 4-2 comeback win over Brazilian champions Corinthians as Graeme Murty’s side brought their trip to a successful close.
Murty’s side had previously beaten Atletico Mineiro 1-0 leaving them in pole position to win the trophy.
Cardoso has been a fringe player since Pedro Caixinha was replaced by Murty in October and will be hoping his performances in the United States win him a reprieve.
“Good performance lads, Florida was good for us,” Cardoso said on his personal Twitter account.
“Now it’s time to come back and keep (up) the good work.”
Good performance lads, Flórida was good for us ????????
Now it’s time to come back and keep the good work ????

The 23-year-old Portuguese defender joined the Ibrox giants from Vitoria Setubal last summer and was a mainstay in the side under compatriot Caixinha.
Since Murty’s appointment Cardoso has only made one appearance – with one more outing as an unused substitute – before playing more minutes than any other player in Florida.
Cardoso is under contract at Ibrox until the summer of 2020 after penning a three-year deal with the 54-times Scottish champions.
During his time at Ibrox, Cardoso has made 15 appearances for the Gers.
In other Rangers transfer news, it has been reported that Gers are homing in on a top flight player who wants to move to the Ibrox.
