Charlie Telfer was wowed by Rangers on Sunday night – but the former Ger says he and his Falkirk teammates will learn a lot from their weekend meeting.

Rangers eliminated the Bairns from the League Cup on Sunday, the League One side losing 4-0 to the Premiership leaders.

While the scoreline suggests a tough day for the Bairns, Lee Miller and David McCracken’s men actually equipped themselves well against superior opposition.

Telfer knows what Rangers have did to teams across Europe this season and believes Falkirk can benefit from this game: “It’s obviously disappointing because we got beat 4-0.

“But I think at times we did alright. We tried to get on the ball, tried to play. We made a few mistakes for the goals but I think we gave a good account of ourselves overall.

“I think Lee and Cracks said before the game that we aren’t just going to sit in and be ultra-defensive, because eventually they will pick you off and you’re chasing the result. It gave us a platform to wait for moments to go.

“Then we had to take our chances or find that pass to break them down. It didn’t come off on the night.. We’ve said after the game, we have learned so much from it.

“Me personally, I have learned so much. They are bringing on young boys and they are going straight into a system and following the same movements. It’s just that next level.

“You see them doing that against the best teams in Europe. We can take a lot from it as we are looking to win games and win leagues.”
