RICHIE FORAN is hopeful his Inverness Caley Thistle players are hitting form at the right stage of the season after last night’s 2-1 victory over Rangers.

The Highlanders moved off the Premiership bottom place with three much-needed points courtesy of goals from Greg Tansey and Billy McKay.

Caley boss Foran said: “We can go on a run. Maybe it’s going to be perfect timing for that run, coming to the end of the season.

“Go and win games, go on your run, go eight, nine unbeaten, we can get in that top six.”

Iain Vigours squandered a late penalty-kick after Martyn Waghorn had levelled from the spot for the visitors.

Foran admiited: “I thought our moment was gone with missing the penalty.

“The boys showed big, big character against a really good side. Rangers have been written off, they’re getting criticised from every angle. They’re a good side with good players and that’s a huge result for us.

“I always thought we were a threat in the final third. I wasn’t sure if we’d get a chance after the penalty, but that’s why you’ve got Billy Mckay in your team.

“He can score out of nothing. If you want to have a successful season, you need a striker like that.

“The desire to not get beat, we have that now. We set the foundations last week in the 1-1 draw against Hearts. 

“We’ve been bottom of the table for a long time. Other players maybe would’ve folded. They have huge character, huge bravery between them.

“We kept it positive all the time and knew the results would come. I knew the amount of quality in the dressing room.

“It gets us off the bottom of the table. Let’s stay off the bottom now. Obviously, a few results have to go for us, but it’s all in their hands now.”

Hamilton Accies are now a point adrift of the Highlanders and face champions Celtic at Parkhead this afternoon.
