Rangers missed a big chance to close the gap on their title rivals Celtic as they produced one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Andre Morelos opened the scoring for the hosts in the 22nd minute before Fashion Sakala doubled their advantage two minutes later. Jordan Roberts pulled one back for the visitors before Kaiyne Woolery equalized in the 76th minute. The gap at the top remains at three points.
Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “Very disappointed. We started the game really well and could have won the game in the first half with all the chances we created, but only scored two. You have to be ruthless in your defending and clinical with the chances you get, we have to be defensively much more solid. We know the run-in will be very important for us. To lose two points at home to Motherwell in a game you should have won is very disappointing.”
Motherwell assistant Chris Lucketti: “We said at half-time about showing respect but not fear, maybe the first half there was a little bit of fear from some of our players. We asked them to show belief in themselves – they are good players, they can handle the ball. And the second half they responded in the way that we wanted. Every single player was putting their body on the line, it was a performance full of grit and steel for those last 15 minutes.”
