RICHIE FORAN will demand that his Inverness Caley Thistle players believe they can beat “fragile” Rangers in the Highland capital tomorrow night.
He has watched his side lose 1-0 on both occasions they have faced the Govan outfit this season, but he took encouragement from the performance in Glasgow on Christmas Eve.
The Caley boss said: “They were probably the better side up here in October, but we were much the better team at Ibrox.
“We just couldn’t find the back of the net, but one of our best displays of the season was down there.“I don’t mind a poor performance and winning the game 1-0 – I’ll take that, as well. We’ve got to spot the weaknesses and we’ve got to go and get at them.
“We’ve got to get into their faces and work harder than them and then when we get the ball we’ve got to make things happen.
“There’s no point in winning the ball back if we’re not willing to create. Sometimes that’s the problem when we play the best teams, we work our socks off to get the ball back then just give it back to them.”
Rangers are without a permanent manager following the controversial departure of Mark Warburton, with Under-20s coach Graeme Murty in interim charge.
Foran added: “There’s a lot of confusion at the club. The manager has left, has he been sacked? They don’t know.
“Some of the players will come out scrapping, some will be hiding. I’m hoping a few of them will be feeling a bit fragile on Friday night.
“A few of the players’ heads will probably be all over the place and we’ve got to take advantage.”
