Dundee United striker Marc McNulty has refused to credit Rangers for their 4-1 win over the Tangerines last weekend.
The Gers eased to a 4-1 win as Ianis Hagi, Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos maintained the Light Blues’ unbeaten Scottish Premiership campaign.
However, McNulty claims Dundee United actually limited Rangers in the game and that his side let the Gers off the hook.
McNulty is quoted by The Scottish Sun as saying, “We started Sunday’s game really well and limited Rangers to very little.
“It was frustrating because we created good opportunities. If we’d taken one of them it would have been a completely different game.
“We let Rangers off the hook, then they went up the park and got a bit of luck with a couple of deflections. We came away from Sunday taking the positives out of it.”
Dundee United started the game well and forced Allan McGregor into some early saves but we never really looked like conceding.
Let’s also not forget that we could’ve gone 5-0 up if Borna Barisic hadn’t missed a second-half spot-kick, that’s as dominant as it gets.
To suggest that Rangers only won because the visitors ‘let us off the hook’ is just plain wrong and it sounds like sour grapes from McNulty.
By the time he scored a consolation goal, which was handed to him by an inexperienced debutant, we were 4-0 up and there was no danger of a comeback.
Even if Dundee United had taken one of their early chances they were never going to defend a one-goal lead at Ibrox for 70 minutes or so.
It may have taken Rangers a while to get going but once we did, we were unstoppable as always.
As for the deflections, well, if they’d defended better then maybe the visitors could’ve stopped our shots hitting the target instead of deflecting the ball past their own keeper.
