Boyd Bolstered by Newfound Belief; There Is No Doubt We Will Get Stronger


Byline: PETER JARDINE

PAUL LE GUEN was at his apologetic best on Sunday evening but he was not for turning.

His side lacked ' efficiency' and the situation is 'alarming and serious' in the wake of the weekend results. Talk about deja blue.

' I am disappointed to see the mistakes, but I am behind the players all the way,' he said. 'It is hard, but I will fight until the last day. I am ready to battle.' The Frenchman was speaking a b o u t Pa r i s S t G e r m a i n' s potential relegation from Ligue One, of course, rather than the Old Firm victory that eluded him during his brief spell at Rangers.

As Ibrox fans enjoyed the afterglow of Walter Smith's victorious return to Parkhead, PLG and PSG were slipping further into the mire in France. A 1-0 home defeat to Auxerre - even l e Guen' s Rangers boasted an away draw with them in the UEFA Cup groups - has set tongues wagging in the capital. The Parisiens are growing restless.

The contrast with Govan could not be starker. Smith has banked 19 points from 21 since his installation as new manager.

Kris Boyd (right) highlighted the change of mood yesterday, the striker who was left on the bench on Sunday admirably embracing the team ethic in his public utterances at a Nationwide schools event at Merrylee Primary in Glasgow.

'Winning against Celtic at Parkhead simply proves how far we have come in the last three months,' said Boyd. 'We are only in the early stages with the new gaffer but there's no 'We've taken six points from our last two games and they were away to Hibs and Celtic. That says it all for me. I am sure Rangers will be back in the hunt for honours next season and it was a massive boost for us all to win at Celtic Park when they lose there so rarely.

'All the lads deserve credit because it was a real team performance but you have to say it was an amazing goal from Ugo Ehiogu.

'Any goal against Celtic is a great goal for a Rangers player but that one was special. Mind you, I think Ugo was more happy with the fact he helped keep a clean sheet - defenders always think that way.' Wi t h t h e Osasuna return quickly followed by Ibrox, Smith has made it clear he will shuffle his squad for a schedule of five major matches in 13 days.
