ROSS COUNTY skipper Andrew Davies knew his team would get opportunities to score against Rangers because of their weak defence.
The centre-half got the Highlanders’ equaliser in the 1-1 draw with the Ibrox side in Dingwall yesterday after Clint Hill had given the visitors an early advantage.
Davies, 31, revealed County planned to get at the Ibrox defence after watching videos of them in action.
He said: “I feel that defensively you can get at Rangers, I really do. They have got some really good players going forward and you have to be really careful.

“But at the back that’s where their weakest point is. With Rangers, they give you opportunities. Against good teams, they’ll get punished. We should have punished them – but we didn’t.

“If our final ball or final shot had been just that little bit better, I don’t see why we couldn’t have won the game 2-1 or 3-1.

“We have watched videos of Rangers. Our manager, Jim McIntyre, is very organised before games. He had us drilled on everything they do, what they’re good at, what they’re not good at.

“That’s full credit to him. Even in the first-half, they took a lot of chances.They keep trying to pass their way out. That’s obviously how their manager wants them to play.

“But it’s risk football. They are taking risks in bad areas of the pitch.

“That’s how it looked. Some teams sit off them and they’ve looked really good. If you press them, like we pressed them, are they good enough to deal with the ball under that sort of pressure?

“They are quite comfortable when they have no pressure. Defensively, the way they organise themselves, they’re open. When you look at Aberdeen and Hearts, they’re very solid, not open.”
