KILMARNOCK keeper Jamie MacDonald is convinced the 3-0 loss against Rangers was a mere blip in form for the Ayrshire outfit.
Lee Clark’s side made the trip to Ibrox in confident mood after collecting seven points from their games against St Johnstone, Inverness Caley Thistle and Hearts.

However, they were taken apart as Lee Wallace, Andy Halliday and Joe Garner grabbed the goals in a fairly comfortable outing for Mark Warburton’s men.

Killie now face a crunch confrontation with Hamilton at the weekend the experienced shotstopper reckons the team can put the Ibrox loss behind them.
MacDonald said: “It was always going to be a long day. They had a few shots in the first three minutes and it was just a game too far for us.

“We’ve had a tough couple of weeks, but we’ve picked up good points on the road and at home on Wednesday night.

“Rangers were excellent, but we are disappointed we didn’t hit the heights we have done in the last few matches.

“We thought we had them at a good time when they were under a little bit of pressure with not getting the results they wanted recently and we were coming off probably our best performance of the season against Hearts.

“Now we have a big game next week against Hamilton. It’s important we get back to the form we’ve shown over the last three games and, hopefully, we can pick up a win.

“It’s a strange league. If we’d won on Saturday, we would have been very close to Rangers.

“Two weeks ago we were near the bottom and, suddenly, we could have been well up there. It’s just trying to get that bit of consistency.”
