Celtic moved 10 points clear of Rangers on Wednesday, dismantling Hearts 5-0 while Steven Gerrard's Rangers side surrendered two goals in the final 13 minutes to fall 2-1 at Kilmarnock. "To beat a team as good as Hearts with an emphatic scoreline like that was very pleasing". We've let ourselves down tonight in the second half. Tavernier admits he is at a loss to explain why Rangers have struggled to find their optimum form after the winter break for a second successive campaign, having experienced similar issues past year on the back of an Old Firm victory in December. We're not counting our chickens and getting carried away.

"It happened past year as well". It's really hard to swallow that we are doing this. It's worrying. I've been with this team long enough to know we've been in situations and we've handled it but not tonight and it's very disappointing to let all the fans see that tonight. "That's the worst part of it". "And we simply don't deal with it".

Ntcham opened the scoring in the first-half for the Bhoys, as he reacted quickest to a goalkeeper save to tap in a rebound.

"We came here tonight and it was a pressure game in a stadium where you know you are going to be under the cosh or under the heat".

"In the second half we go out and we're still in the
driving seat at 1-0 up". It was said at half-time - a clean sheet will win the game.

"We never get opportunities to score goals like that ever in a season and it's criminal we are conceding them as a team".

"If you want to be competing for a title, you can't be conceding those type of goals". However, they will have to improve their mentality and add consistency to their game.

"But it's at places like Kilmarnock and Aberdeen when they are tough and they are going to be challenging".

"They might get an upside in the match when they are on top, but you have to see it out. We missed opportunities tonight but at the end of the day, us as a team need to keep the ball out of the back of the net".
