TWO-GOAL Jamie Walker taunted ragged Rangers by insisting: “We could easily have hit you for SIX!”
The Hearts youngster stole the show against Mark Warburton’s wretched Ibrox outfit as Ian Cathro’s side – beaten 4-0 by Celtic at the weekend – raced to an emphatic 4-1 victory at Tynecastle.
Walker, who claimed both his goals in a one-sided second-half as the visitors folded in remarkable fashion, said: “We scored four goals and could have had five or six.
“I don’t think that would have flattered us.”
Shell-shocked Warburton said: “We’ve just lost 4-1. We’re Rangers Football Club, we don’t lose 4-1. We did and I feel frustrated, absolutely.
“We weren’t good enough second-half. On Saturday against Motherwell, I thought it was as good as we’ve played in 18 months.
“On this occasion, second half was as bad as we’ve played in 18 months if not the WORST.
“To give a goal away four minutes into the second-half is just ludicrous. We win together and we lose together, but that was way below the levels of Rangers Football Club.
“I didn’t see it coming. Nobody did, the players or staff. We all have bad days at the office, like last time we were here, but we thought we had learned from the first visit.
“However, we gave away schoolboys errors at the start of each half. We have to be better than that.
“To give away those type of goals was unacceptable.”
Tynecastle Head Coach Cathro added: “We had the intensity and we managed the game well. Hearts are worth watching.
“Across the 90 minutes, it was the most complete we’ve been.
“It’s important that right throughout the difficult moments that we’ve had, I’ve always known where we were going and I’ve always known what the football would be like.
“I’m just pleased tonight that the 17,000 inside Tynecastle were able to see some of that, as well.
“We’ve had some difficult times, we’ve had to suffer. We’ve had results that we’ve not liked.
“This was all of us getting our frustrations out and I’m really, really pleased that everyone’s had that opportunity.
“I love the way Jamie Walker plays, simple as that. Massive talent.”
