Everything the manager said to TNT after the 2-2 draw with PSV.

What did you make of the game?

We had it where we wanted it. We had a big chance at the end there with Danilo. So, we cannot be frustrated. We need to get on with the league game this weekend and then next week it’s a hell of a game. It’s a straight shootout and we’ll go there and we’ll have a right go again.

You had a right go tonight, you could tell right from the start you wanted to put them under pressure

I thought the front three worked really hard. Cyriel Dessers, that’s his best performance for Rangers so far. You can see he’s up to speed. He took the centre-backs on physically and he’s won that battle because he’s got two assists. I was delighted with Abdallah Sima for the goal. There are moments of the game that I’d like us to stay in possession of the ball more but you have to think of the magnitude of the game and the opponent that you’re playing against. I thought we scored two fantastic goals and we’re unlucky not to get a third right at the death.

How much confidence do you take from the quality of the two goals?

They’re an extremely talented side going forward. There’s a mixture of real experience in De Jong, but also I think the wide players are excellent. Defensively we had to be strong. Our disappointment is we kept Jack (Butland) pretty much clean and we conceded the second goal off a set play. At the other end of the pitch we think we can hurt them. At times tonight, we showed that and we’re going to have to show that next week in Eindhoven.

You must take confidence going into the second leg?

Well, yeah because I think we’ve got the legs on the two centre-backs. So, next week, they’ll have to come for us. They’re in their home stadium with their fans. It will give us different spaces that we don’t get domestically. For Sima and Rabbi Matondo, that’s what they brought to the team. It’s about building a squad that has a lot of variety. We’ve got a lot of players that maybe play between the lines, but we’re going to need people in big spaces who can run in behind. The two goalscorers give us that for sure.

Rabbi Matondo has got his reward!

For him to score his first goal tonight, it’s a reward for the work he’s done in pre-season. What people don’t see is when I came into the club, he had a knee injury that he was playing through and missed a lot of football. Towards the end of the season, there were two or three games where he was eye-catching, namely the derby against Celtic where I thought he was excellent. His start to the season had been good. It’s a tough old shirt to wear at times. That will do him the world of good tonight. He’s taken an opportunity. Can he do it consistently for us?

Have players that have been to Eindhoven and have won before?

I don’t think they’ll underestimate us, but they better not because we’ll take our away fans there and we’ll go. Our away form in Europe is very strong. This is a PSV team that’s not been beaten since February. We were very close tonight to doing that. They’re highly assembled in terms of finance. We had a right go. Naturally, at our fifth or sixth game of the season, there are areas of our game I’d like us to get better at. But I saw a lot of good signs in my team tonight. There were times when the going got tough and people didn’t look right and left, they got on with the game and found solutions. When we broke with the ball in midfield, we had good chances on the counter-attack. That’s going to be key, can we get James (Tavernier) and Borna (Barisic) forward more? That was the part that was maybe missing in our performance tonight.
