Ash Taylor calls out Kilmarnock for relegation despite defeat by Rangers

The Rugby Park side went away empty-handed on Saturday as Rangers scored three first-half goals to render a Jeriel Dorsett header irrelevant to Ibrox.

Boss Derek McInnes was frustrated with goals conceded by Connor Goldson and Fashion Sakala ahead of a James Tavernier penalty.

And he was amused at why his side didn’t get a penalty after the break for an Allan McGregor challenge against Rory McKenzie.

Kilmarnock remain four points clear of Dundee United and defender Taylor is confident the squad has the quality and character to meet the relegation challenge.

Taylor said: “We had good margins in the away games. We just didn’t have the second goal to give us a boost, or even the first one, and we had to climb a mountain at times.

“We can gain confidence here from the performance in the second half and build on that.

“We have to play again against all the teams around us. That’s what matters at the end of the day and we just have to make sure we get the points from those games.

“We are looking forward to it. It’s a challenge we’ll enjoy.

“I know what’s in that dressing room. I know this group of guys. We were against it last year when we tried to get promoted and we got through it, with that game against Arbroath at the end.

“Like I said, I know what’s in the dressing room and we have faith in doing what we have to do.

“I see it as the same pressure. We have a job to do. It’s about keeping the club in the league.”

“Last year was about getting back up. At the end of the day, it’s the same price as the Premiership.

“I’ve fought for things at the top end of the table and I know the manager’s experience in those situations too.” Ash Taylor calls out Kilmarnock for relegation despite defeat by Rangers
