Super sub Bob McHugh dampened down Mark Warburton’s Champions League plans with a stoppage time winner as Falkirk came from behind to beat champions elect Sevco 3-2 last night.
Warbo’s galacticos were in dazzling form as they raced into a two goal lead in under 10 minutes with the modest city trader suggesting that his side should have been SEVEN UP before half time.
With twenty minutes left to play Sevco were still comfortable on their two goal lead but goals from Blair Alston and Myles Hippolyte exposed the lack of international class in the Ibrox defence.
In stoppage time McHugh raced to the front post to steer a shot past Wesley Foderinham and earn the home side full points.
After the match the respectful Ibrox boss said: We were two up and, with respect, could have been five, six, seven. Should have been.
“There were a couple of warning signs, some loose passes and we spoke at half-time about taking care of the football, keep moving it, and inexplicably we didn’t do that.
“As a group of players we have gone from nine out of 10 to four out of 10, which can’t happen, hasn’t happened. They have been outstanding all season but we have to learn from that second half because for 30 minutes we were poor.
“They were playing so well in the first half that it was almost too easy. Peter knows what I mean by that.
“In the second half the players took an extra touch, they thought they could afford to. We are very good when we move the ball quickly.”
