The Tone After The Win

Much better from players and management, no back slapping and patting one another on the back.

Strictly business.

I think our reaction to previous Old Firm wins have negatively impacted us psychologically. We got ahead of ourselves, believed in our own hype.

It’s 3 points and we move on. Simple as that.
The win at the shit pit in December was just relief and a realisation they are beatable there.

In a strange way today will hurt them more.....they know now it wasn't a fluke.

The tide is turning and today it hit home for them.

Agreed. Although it’s obviously easier to react calmly after a controlled win such as today.

It’s all about what we do against the rest. we must press this advantage home.

I think Stevie G has learned alot from the past 2 seasons post January break and subsequent ar*e collapse of thr season.
He has to have drummed that into the player each and every one of them. The talk of staying humble seems to confirm this.
Every player today deserves credit and to enjoy it but they all need reminded they've won nothing YET. We are still up against a team that will win 98% of games against the rest of the league. We need to do the same

Players and manager spoke as if it was three points against St Mirren, and that’s exactly how we should address them.

It's all relative to where we were at that point in time.
The previous celebrations were perfectly warranted.
This result and attitude have been two seasons and several millions in the making.
You also have to take into account there were no fans in the stadium, which takes everything down several notches.

I think the turning point for this win was losing the league cup last year. We put so much into that game and couldn’t find the way to win. SG and his team reflected long and hard since that point and made the mental and physical changes to strengthen the competency of our team. Beating both Aberdeen and Celtic away already echoes to me that we are on the right track to success - we have something very special this year and it belong to Rangers.

Just finished watching the game again and at the end Stevie and Tav just share a "job well done" smile, something about the way they did it really pleased me - like they were just saying to each other "we're better than them and we know it"

I can see your point. I think there are a few factors to consider though. As has already been pointed out, the lack of crowd would play part. However, last December the celebrations were understandable given it was our 1st win at piggery in years and also how tough a game it was when taking in to account the Clancy factor.

Their tone has changed too.
More of them saying we've got their number. Hoping/presuming they'll hoover up points against everyone else and we drop points elsewhere. Definitely not looking forward to playing us again whereas we'd happily play them every week.
I'd much rather be in our positiont.
