BARRIE McKAY last night insisted Rangers would keep battling until the title was mathematically beyond them.
The Light Blues win over Hearts yesterday cut Celtic’s lead at the top of the Premiership to eight points.
However with the Hoops undefeated in domestic competition this season and holding three games in hand, for the majority of the onlookers the question is not if Brendan Rodgers side will make six-in-a-row, but when.
“No one here believes the title is gone,” said the Light Blues winger.
“It’s not over till it’s over. We will push it to the last day.
“We go into every game looking to win. At this club, the fans expect you to win too, no matter the league you are playing in.
“Wherever we go we need to make sure we get those wins.”
The 21-year-old turned in a man-of-the-match display to earn himself praise from his manager, Mark Warburton, and admitted he was more than happy with his form.
“That was definitely back close to my best,” he said with a smile.
“I was playing at the start of the season and then came out of the team. Rightly so, because I wasn’t performing anywhere near the level of last season.
“That gave me the chance to recharge my batteries and now I’m back playing, I feel really fresh.
“The gaffer spoke to me and said I am still young and was going to have that dip in form. It speaks volumes for your character if you can come through it.
“Hopefully this is me through it.
“I had dipped. I was still probably trying the same things but they weren’t coming off as often.
“The boys who came in did well and it was up to me to fight my way back.
“I had to freshen up mentally. Last season was the first time I had played nearly every game and then I went away with the Scotland squad and my holiday was cut short.
“Danny Wilson and Lee Wallace talked me through it. They told me to keep going and push myself back into the manager’s thoughts.”
