Ryan Jack says that is important for the Rangers squad to stick together after the dismal loss to Hamilton Accies on Saturday.

Jack, along with most of the 48,000-strong crowd inside Ibrox, was left shellshocked after goals from David Templeton and Darren Lyon gave Martin Canning’s men a surprise victory.

It was the first defeat of Graeme Murty’s second spell in temporary charge of the club, and blew away most of the optimism that had been building after convincing victories over Hearts at Murrayfield and Partick Thistle at home in the previous two fixtures.

The Rangers supporters made their feelings plain at the final whistle, as they yet again watched their side fail to record a third consecutive victory, a feat they haven’t managed all season.

Jack admits that the result was unacceptable, and he believes it is now vital for everyone to rally around each other to make sure Rangers come out fighting against Dundee at Dens Park on Friday night.

“On that result, people are going to question us, there’s no doubt,” Jack said.

“There’s no doubt that there are games this season that we have lost that we have been favourites to go and win and we’ve not done it.

“It’s a fact that everyone is going to question us, everyone is going to criticise us and have their say with what they think.

“It’s important in the inside, within the team and the squad, that we get around each other, we stick together on the inside.

“We dominated, and we created lots of chances. In the first half, we were miles ahead of Hamilton and the chances we created were gilt-edged ones. We had a real spring in our step and we were all together.

“We went in at half-time and we said that we had to just do more of the same, keep doing what we were doing, and the goal would come.

“Obviously it’s then a sore one to take.”

The two people who will probably need the support of their teammates most are young defender Ross McCrorie, whose underhit backpass laid Hamilton’s opener on a plate for them, and striker Alfredo Morelos, who missed a hatful of chances.

“Alfredo is a good lad and we’re all here for each other,” said Jack. “It’s not just Alfredo, we’ve had a disappointing result here and we all just have to stick together as a team.

“It’s important that we don’t come away from here blaming each other and falling out and arguing, it’s about sticking together and getting back into training, getting around each other and making sure we show a reaction.

“A few of us have spoken to Ross and told him that everyone makes mistakes, that’s football and it’s part of the game.

“I told him that I’m the first one to hold my hands up, I’ve made mistakes in my career and it’s how you react and how you respond that counts.

“He’s got a really mature head on him, so I’m sure that next week, if selected, he will put that right.”
