Following today’s clash between Rangers and Falkirk, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Rangers hosted Falkirk at Ibrox Stadium on Sunday March 4 for the Scottish Cup quarter finals, with the hosts taking a comfortable four one victory.

Jason Cummings got the home side underway in the 16th minute of the game, and according to some he went on to complete a four goal rout of the visiting defence in the 21st, 44th and 75th minutes of the game.

According to others, some are crediting Aaron Muirhead with an own goal for the third strike on the day. If Muirhead is credited with the goal ultimately, he saved his own blushes in the 20th minute as he did tie the scores back up for 60 seconds before Rangers took charge.

In any event it’s another Old Firm meeting in the semi final stage at Hampden.

Teams:

Rangers:

Alnwick, Tavernier, Bates, Bruno Alves, Halliday, Docherty, Goss (Holt 68), Candeias (Miller 80), Cummings, Windass (Dodoo 80), Morelos.

Substitutes:

Foderingham, Herrera, Hodson, Martin.

Falkirk:

Thomson, Muirhead, Grant (Harris 71), McGhee, Tumilty, Longridge, Taiwo (McKee 58), Sibbald, Robson, Jakubiak, Nelson.

Substitutes:

Kidd, Hazard, Blair, Loy, Watson.

Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Craig Thomson blew the final whistle, Rangers manager Graeme Murty explained.

‘I thought we`d get them and if you want to win the cup you have to beat the best teams. I think we have the ability to go and beat Celtic. I see a team that has played lots of games and have hit the heights this season. But I see a team in my dressing room that is hungry to go and beat them.’

Adding.

‘I didn`t think we were fluid and at our best, but we got the job done. The group are positive at the moment. It was vital that Jason Cummings got 90 minutes. He gets into fantastic positions. He just needs more minutes and time to get that sharpness. He hasn`t done his case any harm today.’

Falkirk manager Paul Hartley in his comparative interview explained.

‘We were positive today and went for it. We had some opportunities and put Rangers under pressure at times today. The pleasing thing was that we didn`t show any fear. I`m disappointed with the goals we lost, but our overall play I was pleased with.’
