Conor Sammon makes bold claim about previous Rangers v Partick clashes
By James Black
Partick Thistle star Conor Sammon is looking to get some revenge over Rangers after failing to beat the Ibrox giants when they met twice in a week in September.
The sides drew both games over 90 minutes – with Pedro Caixinha’s Gers advancing to the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup after an extra-time win in one of them – and Sammon boldly claims that the Jags should have won one of the games.
The two sides meet again at Ibrox on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership and Sammon believes the previous results should give Alan Archibald’s side confidence going into Saturday’s game.
“We’re all looking forward to getting out there and we are looking for another three points,” Sammon said, as quoted by Partick Thistle’s official website.
“We’ve had some really good games with Rangers already this season and we’ve ran them close twice already, we really should have really won at least one of them.

“That gives us a lot of belief and confidence going into the game.
“We know we can cause them problems if we play as well as we can and to our strengths.”
Thistle have had a slow start to the Scottish Premiership campaign but have started to find some form in recent weeks with a couple of wins and a draw.
The Gers will be looking to build on their last result when they beat Hearts 3-1 in Graeme Murty’s first game in interim charge.
The Under-20’s coach took the reigns in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking and will be in charge on Saturday at Ibrox again.
Derek McInnes is the current bookies favourite to replace Caixinha and the Gers could move during the international break to appoint the Aberdeen boss as their 17th permanent manager.
