Ross Perry says Rangers aren't affected by their away form

Defender Ross Perry insists Rangers' poor away form is not weighing heavily on the players' minds ahead of Sunday's visit to Clyde.

The Light Blues have yet to secure a victory on the road in the Irn-Bru Third Division so far this season. Most recently they suffered a humiliating defeat at struggling Stirling Albion, before a return to winning ways against Queen's Park at Ibrox last week allowed them to move into top spot.

Perry said: "We don't really think about the past. We got a good result last week and we are looking to build on that this week."

He added: "I don't think the fact this game is away from home is on anyone's minds. We are just going to go out and try to win the game.

"We know that our away performances haven't been good enough, we know we need to improve.

"I'm sure that is going to happen very quickly."

Boss Ally McCoist has said he will come down "like a ton of bricks" on any player who believes Rangers do not need away wins to clinch the title and who thinks they can simply rely on their Ibrox performances to claim the silverware come the end of the season.

Perry said: "I don't think we don't care - we obviously care. We know it hasn't been good enough.

"We are top of the league and we will go into Sunday's game trying to stay there.

"As footballers, we love playing games. We look forward to the games. We had a great result on Saturday and all the boys are desperate to get out there on Sunday and keep the run going."
