Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has urged his side to be more consistent in the second half of the season, and has admitted that the Old Firm derby win against Celtic was a morale-booster for the squad.

The Gers beat Celtic for the first time in more than two years and it allowed them to go level on points with the Hoops in the league table, though they have played a game more than the reigning Scottish Premiership champions.

Steven Gerrard’s side have drawn six and lost three times already this season and were knocked out of the Europa League despite putting themselves in a good position to qualify on the final matchday of the group stage.

McGregor feels the win against Celtic will give them the confidence, but has urged the players to replicate the same consistency in every game.

“It gives you confidence [the win against Celtic] and obviously you look back and debrief it and we need to take that into every game”, McGregor told Rangers TV.

“I don’t think we have done that throughout the season, I think we have been a bit too inconsistent, but hopefully we have got the belief and confidence now after that to actually look and see it and know that we can do it.”
