“Of course, we have a big game on Wednesday now, but you should feel the way you are feeling now. It’s a big loss for us, so you should feel the disappointment. We have to take this result on the chin, learn from it and move on. Then we look forward to Wednesday.”

Rangers paid the price of being sleepy and slack against their biggest rivals. The club manager saw his side’s errors as individuals and a group.

He said: “

It’s hard when you go like that in the first-half.

“It was the same in February. It makes it difficult, but in the second half we were a bit better on the ball.

“But then again we gifted another goal. In those moments you need to recognise when to build up and when not to build up. We gave three goals away. I’m very disappointed with the loss. In the first-half we gifted them two goals.

“They were very dangerous at set-pieces with quick free-kicks and quick throw-ins. For both goals we weren’t ready. We were not alert enough.

“It’s very disappointing to lose, but it’s also the way we gave the goals away. You never feel good when you lose big games like this so I’m very disappointed by the performance.”
