"I thought we rode our luck in the early stages. When we went 2-0 up I thought, 'Here we go!' but then boom, Chris Burke came on for Rangers and with his second or third touch hit a great strike and suddenly the roof opened up with the noise here.
"Unfortunately, we lost another goal and I was disappointed in the manner in which we did but I am very proud of the performance."
