Michael Beale makes Rangers shout ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ after Hibernian win

The Englishman remained unbeaten thanks to a 4-1 win secured by a penalty from James Tavernier, a brace from Antonio Colak and a second-half goal from Fashion Sakala.

Rangers fell back within ten minutes when Connor Goldson converted into his own net, but that was as good as it got for Lee Johnson as his side were outplayed and outclassed in a fun affair at Easter Road.

And Beale is happy with the direction Rangers are taking, although his Premiership efforts in recent weeks have failed to undermine a nine-point gap to Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Beale said: “The form in the league has been absolutely fantastic, we should have no problem believing that we just don’t want the performances of Jekyll and Hyde.

“Now we’re getting people fit, John Souttar and Ridvan played 45 minutes yesterday so they’re available from the weekend. Rabbi Matondo is available again and you can see that although Ianis Hagi has been out for a year he is slowly coming back in and around the group.

“There is a lot of competition, people are playing for their future and for minutes. I’m happy with where we’re going.

“I know that an isolated moment or two outside can lead to some noise, but inside the building I’m really happy. Our form in the league is excellent, we can only win the games in front of us.”

“We have a big game at the weekend, the warning is there because we weren’t very good against Partick, if we’re not at our best Raith will give us problems and it’s a trophy we want to keep.”

Rangers should have won by a bigger margin at Easter Roads as a series of missed chances in both halves sent Hibernian off the hook after a ragged defensive display.

Beale was delighted with midfield pairing Ryan Jack and Nicolas Raskin while Todd Cantwell also impressed behind the front three of Colak, Sakala and Ryan Kent.

Beale said: “Away when teams come and open for us Hibs tried to attack the game, when we’re strong defensively and win the ball back in interesting areas we can punish teams, that was maybe the story of the game.

“On defence, as impressive as we were with the ball, it came down to the work ethic of the whole team, all the outfield players pushing, running and moving together. We won a lot of tackles in the game and it left Hibs a little bit vulnerable .

“We could have been more ruthless but in a professional game when you score four goals in front of your home crowd you shouldn’t groan, you should be happy that your team scored that many goals.”
