EROS GREZDA was delighted Rangers were able to dig deep to clinch a crucial three points as they moved top of the Premiership at Tynecastle.

Steven Gerrard’s side fell behind to an early own goal from Gareth McAuley but scored twice before the break as Connor Goldson and Alfredo Morelos netted.

The Light Blues had to play the final stages of the game with ten men after Scott Arfield saw red for a late challenge on keeper Zdenek Zlamal.

But Grezda reckons the Gers’ spirit shone through as they battled to a hugely important top flight victory.

He said: “It was a really hard game. The guys never lost belief after going 1-0 down and we came back fast. We are very happy.

“It’s a long way to the end [of the season] but for the moment we have a lot of games and we just have to go one by one.

“We have to give maximum effort in every game and go for the win. But the end is so far.

“As I said we go for every win so we will see what will happen.

“That’s football. We lacked a bit in the first 20 minutes but after they scored we showed our best face and scored two goals and that decided it.

“We played with less players in the second half but I’m really proud of the guys that they made it.”
