BRUNO ALVES has claimed that the Rangers’ result in Dingwall could kickstart their campaign.

The 35-year-old veteran was solid in defence as the Ibrox side ran out 3-1 victors in Dingwall thanks to a Morelos double and a late Herrera goal to cancel Thomas Mikklesen’s goal out.

“The most important thing is the victory. It was difficult and we expected this but the team worked very well.

“We know away games are difficult but we proved our character, the way we want to play and we want to win.”

Much has been made of Alves’ age and whether he can cope with the physical demands of the Scottish game, but Alves is convinced that he, and his new teammates, can make their mark in Scotland.

“I feel good. It was my personal choice to come here and to join this team.

“I like to play like this. My team-mates give their best, we are improving day by day, game by game and this is what we think to get better and better.

“It was very important after the draw last week. Like I said, it is important to get the points but sometimes it is not possible to play well. It is important to win.”

Rangers go into the international break in 5th position before Dundee visit Ibrox on Saturday 9 September.
