PRESS CONFERENCE | Michael Beale | Rangers 2-1 Servette | 09 Aug 2023Aug 10, 2023
In the end, we started very, very well in the game. I thought the energy for the team was good in and out of possession and the desire from Nico and Todd's first goal to chase a couple of lost causes really was fantastic. I bought a bar to hit you or I had a good night, I put some cool crosses and playing with the two number nines gives you that opportunity, you know you get so many, although it goes through the score of neopos and silver and at that time we. We are in a great place, I thought after that we had wasted um, we could have put three new ones forward, then the VAR decision on the penalty I think is harsh, but that is the decision, uh, the second half that they are saving made A fantastic stop by Sam. and since Seal we had other moments again where I thought we were lost for a night where we played well in my opinion for a long period of time.
I hope it's frustrating, isn't it? So before we get to the next thing, well, I think it's keeping us on our toes? We know it will be difficult to go to Geneva, there will be a full house and we will see a different game as we always see in Europe, but I would never win in a European competitions because I know they are very difficult to get. I think as a team it's something I've said a lot as Rangers coach, but now it's just with new faces that we do a lot of the good things that we create.
We have numerous opportunities, we have to be more decisive and I will give it to our forwards at the moment because they are new to the club and it is early in the season, but we continue to create opportunities like that, we will have to take them if I want to put teams away, make a further improvement, you feel it especially after getting the weekend out of your system, yes it's been a tough few days and I think the players came together really well tonight. I thought they dominated the game and pushed, pushed, pushed. It's more like what I want to see from the team, there was more runs forward, there was more
pressure, we will approach the game very similarly next week.
I think it's obvious that Ambush will have to go for the game and that will mean it's going to be a really good old tire, but if you look around Europe this week there are interesting results so I'm happy to get the win. We need to concentrate strongly now on Livingston before thinking about next Tuesday, a bit frustratingly we say. I didn't make any more extra money for the last half hour, yes, the goalkeeper makes two fantastic saves, you know, and yes, you know, if we come in here we score the other two goals and you're very happy, but there is frustration. but it wasn't by having the ball in the right areas and having the right moments.
I think there is a lot of frustration in the neighbor, but we have to let us win the game that we will play next week and We have to be at our best because there are a couple of reports today, but different players in terms of the Reverend's moods because it is possible let it go Can you enlighten those dreamers and also support a lot of the good that you may be interested in bringing them from the lifestyle? There's nothing in any of those to report tonight. I think Rid Van is very, very happy to have lost his best friend to Carla, but other than that, he is extremely happy and will be back training next week.
Harry Suiter, there might be a bit of vague stuff around that because his brother plays for us and I think he follows our club, but if there's any news about it, we'll be the first to know about Michael in terms of the first half. and the
press, the temple, much, much more. That's what you're looking for now from the team and obviously it's going to take time, there are contacts around the new signings but it's much more the kind of standard you want to see in the team, yeah look we'll never get there . to use it as an excuse but the reality is that 13 or 14 players remained and nine entered.
The reality is that Daniel trained with his teammates four times, he had a preseason that was all over the place due to his movement that José is trying with us. twice Tom Lawrence goes back miles, we are not the sum of all parts at the moment but what I want to see from the team is more forward running and more energy. I thought Nico and Todd gave us that from midfield tonight. I thought it was uh, an exciting, free front, you can see how they find connections, they're trying really hard. I thought they had pressed very well in the game and I think they will improve with that, you can see that certainly with Cyril and Danilo.
We're still full speed ahead, so we're not going to use any excuses, it's just a fact of the situation. There have been many changes at the football club. I think it was set up well, but I prefer to continue showing. on the field because Wheels' performance was very positive for you, obviously he didn't start on Saturday, which caused a lot of conversation among the support I was in tonight. I thought he had a great game, yeah, listen, I thought the game on the weekend might open up. Todd was fully aware and he was aware again. He was someone who had some things in pre-season that weren't ideal, but there's no doubt about Tom and I at the time I met him and we had the conversation in London. about him joining the club, Tyler and I are completely on the same page and I thought it was good that tonight played really well in several positions for us now.
