Ross County striker Ross Stewart has his sights set on this weekend’s clash with Rangers, following the disappointing 4-1 defeat to Motherwell.

The Staggies took the lead at Fir Park, but were eventually put to the sword by a Motherwell side who had not been in good form going into the game.

Despite their poor away form, it was perhaps a missed opportunity for County, who may now just be looking over their shoulder slightly with Hamilton and Hearts having both won.

Following the midweek results, Stewart is keen for County to bounce back against Steven Gerrard’s side.

The Gers were euphoric after their win against Braga in the Europa League, but domestically they have been poor since the end of the winter break and could be there for the taking at the Global Energy Stadium.

He said: “We’ve just got to try and get back to what we were doing the set of games before this – we need to make it a battle. Press them high, get in their faces and really make it difficult.

“Even with the run Rangers are on they’re a really good team. It’s going to be difficult and they’re going to have chances. At the same time, we’ve got to look at how we can hurt them.

“Results haven’t been going how they’ve been wanting, we’ve got to try and put pressure on them and see how they cope.

“By doing most of those things, hopefully we can come away with a result.

“It [Hamilton’s win at Ibrox] definitely gives you a bit of belief. Being at home we back ourselves to go into the game and get something.”
