Scott Booth was pleased with his side on Saturday, even though they didn’t get the win they needed to stay above Ayr in the league table.
The Somerset Park men are one point better off than the Warriors with two games to go and occupy the final Championship play-off place.
The Honest Men go to Forfar and then host bottom side East Fife in their final matches of the season, while the Warriors welcome Airdrie ahead of a trip to Brechin on the last day.
Booth said: “We were good in possession on Saturday and I believe we played some of the best football since I arrived at the club.
“We played in the manner I’m looking for in that respect with the full-backs pushing on and the midfield rotating, but Rangers were on a good day.
“You always hope going into a match against a team like Rangers you catch them on a bad day but Nicky Law and Dean Shiels were excellent for them and we were a bit too reserved when we didn’t have the ball.”
He’s looking for that to improve against Airdrie who secured their safety on Saturday. But Booth does without Eddie Malone who is still injured.
“Airdrie have been on an excellent run and Gary Bollan has improved them a lot since he arrived, they really deserve their place in the league next season on current form.
“It’s a tough one for us because they’ll still be playing for contracts but we know it is back to must win games and hoping Ayr drop something somewhere.”
