LEE Wallace has insisted Rangers can recover from the stuttering start they have made to the Ladbrokes Premiership and regain the momentum they had built up before the defeat to Hibs.

Pedro Caixinha’s side is already five points behind Celtic, Aberdeen and St. Johnstone in the Premiership table after three games after losing to Hibs and drawing with Hearts at home at the weekend.

The Ibrox club face a difficult task getting back to winning ways against Ross County – who held them to three draws last season – in Dingwall this Sunday.

However, Wallace, the Rangers captain and left-back, has denied that their disappointing run is “a disaster” and expressed confidence they can recapture better form quickly.

“We would have been looking for a far better start, especially considering we had two home games back to back,” he said. “We have only got one point from that.

“It is not the start we wanted, but we are going to be working hard to put that right and the only way to do that is to get back training. Hopefully, we can regain the momentum we had. It is not a disaster.”

Asked if Celtic, who only dropped eight points last season, being so far ahead at such an early stage in the 2017/18 campaign, was a concern, Wallace said: “We just worry about ourselves and the small worry at the moment is that we have had two home games and have only taken one point.

“We absolutely respect and understand what is going on across there, but we always look to ourselves. We want to close the gap.”
