The Blues player hopes their upcoming encounter with Motherwell will be different from the encounter they had previously.



Cedric Itten

, who admitted to being surprised by


’s 5-5-0 formation in their previous encounter, hopes their upcoming match with Graham Alexander’s men will be different.

Steven Gerrard’s squad is currently sitting in the top of the


table with only one defeat at hand.

Itten talked about the odd formation of Well ahead of their upcoming clash, saying:

“It was a little bit different.”

“I’ve never played against a block like that before.”

“The players here told me that usually it’s not that (many) in the block – but against Motherwell it was a five-five block.”

“So it was really different, but I was just happy that we could break the block at the end and win the game.”

“I always looking forward to every game, but Motherwell is now a good team for me and hopefully I can play well against them on Sunday and maybe even score.”

“It’s good memories and for sure it can help if you go out with good feelings on the pitch.”

“Fir Park was a little bit special for me. It was where I scored my first goal for Rangers and I’m really looking forward to playing there on Sunday.”

Rangers’ boss,


, also spoke of Alexander’s new coaching position with Motherwell, saying:

“A manager always goes in and looks to put his own stamp on things.”

“Normally you get a bit of a bounce and a boost and you galvanise your players and people normally get a fresh start.”

“I’m not sure how they saw their result against St Mirren, but to go away from home in this league and get a point seems like a positive result for a start.”

“I’m sure they will be doing everything they can to derail us and be the first team to beat us from a league point of view.”

“So we expect a tough challenge. We’ll certainly respect a new manager going in and things being slightly different. We have to be ready to adapt to whatever is throw at us.”

“But our focus and our preparation has been majority on us and where we’re at to get the three points.”
