Rangers midfielder Eros Grezda insists the team showed character during their 2-1 win over Hearts despite being one man down for more than 20 minutes.

Rangers fell behind to an early own goal from defender Gareth McAuley but scored twice before half-time through Connor Goldson and Alfredo Morelos.

Steven Gerrard’s men had to play the last 20 minutes of the game with ten men after Scott Arfield saw red for a late challenge on keeper Zdenek Zlamal.

But Grezda reckons the team’s determination showed through as they battled to earn an important victory.

He said, according to Evening Times:

“It was a really hard game. The guys never lost belief after going 1-0 down and we came back fast. We are very happy.”

“It’s a long way to the end [of the season] but for the moment we have a lot of games and we just have to go one by one.”

“We have to give maximum effort in every game and go for the win. But the end is so far.”

“As I said we go for every win so we will see what will happen.”

“That’s football. We lacked a bit in the first 20 minutes but after they scored we showed our best face and scored two goals and that decided it.”

“We played with less players in the second half but I’m really proud of the guys that they made it.”
