St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright admitted that he was happy to come away from Ibrox with a point after their 0-0 draw with Rangers – but thinks they could’ve snuck the win on another day.
Gers keeper Wes Foderingham had to make a couple of important saves to keep the scores level and found himself relieved when Blair Alston hit the bar in the second half.
Wright bemoaned his side’s luck but thought they matched Steven Gerrard’s side after a run of five defeats in a row.
“I’m happy with a point,” said Wright, as quoted by The Courier.
“I think with the chances we had we could have edged it.
“I thought Blair’s chance was in all day.
“You thought it would drop in but it didn’t.
“On another day with a bit of luck it could have been three points.”
The point leaves the Saints two points clear of Motherwell in sixth place in the league and five behind Hearts.
After losing five games on the spin, there was a real fear that the trip to Ibrox would be another morale-apping defeat for Wright’s side.
However, they executed their instructions brilliantly and frustrated Rangers throughout.
The Saints host Aberdeen this weekend and will be hoping to build on their Ibox performance and take another step towards securing their top-six place.
