Rangers News: Ryan Jack insists there is no room for error after poor start | Football | Sport
However, as they get set to face Ross County today in Dingwall, Jack is confident the tide will turn because there is too much quality in the squad.
The Gers midfielder said: “There’s no more room for error or slip-ups. There’s no getting away from it – to pick up one point in the last two home games has not been great.
“The only answer for it is to work as hard as we can in training and stick together. I’m sure we’ll get through it.
“Certain circumstances have dictated the results but as a group we know it needs to be better. When teams come to Ibrox and maybe sit in a bit against us we need to plan how to deal with that better and break teams down more.
“But we’re looking forward to the Ross County game and getting the three points hopefully.
“I see enough to suggest we can go on a run of wins.
“There’s not a better feeling than knowing that after you’ve worked hard for 90 minutes you’ve got the result. As players, we just want to get that back and get everyone onside.”
Jack admits the foreign recruits have been taken aback by the frantic nature of the game here, but points out that Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso, in particular, have adapted quickly and he insists Mexican duo Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera will prove their worth for Rangers.
He said: “After the Motherwell game, Bruno and Fabio said they had never seen so many long balls and had to challenge for so many headers and do so much running.
“It is the possession game they are used to. For them, it has been different trying to adapt to a lot of long balls, teams trying to put us under pressure. But that is what comes from playing at such a big team.
‘They have adapted quite well and we have been working on the intensity and them having to defend long balls coming into the box in training.
“Herrera and Pena have definitely got ability. There’s no doubt about that – you see it in training.
“When we’ve spoken to them it’s the intensity and the pace of the game here that’s different. In Mexico, it’s a bit slower in the build-up and more technical.
“Here there’s a lot more chasing and closing down, then players closing you down when you get the ball.
“For them it’s just about adapting and getting time to settle in. They need time to get their family settled in, to get their head on football and adapt in training.”
With Josh Windass injured, Herrera may find himself back in the starting line-up in Dingwall but Manchester City loan signing Aaron Nemane won’t feature.
Boss Pedro Caixinha said: “We know it’s going to be a tough challenge. They play positive football in their own way and they are very aggressive.
“We know what to expect but we will work hard to win.”
