Bocanegra hoping to lift mood at Rangers

Carlos Bocanegra is determined to get the Rangers supporters up and about after a very tough week.

The reigning Scottish champions fell into administration earlier this week, making the future of the club uncertain, but defender Bocanegra says it is now the job of the players to lift the spirits of the loyal fans when 'Gers take on Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Saturday.

"They give us excellent support and I hope that everyone still comes out to cheer us on," said Bocanegra.

"As players we need to go out and perform and give them something to be happy about.

"They need something at the weekend to raise the spirits but they are all staying behind us and the support at this club has been fantastic since I've been here and that's been a really cool experience.

"I don't see that going anywhere. The fans are pretty loyal and their roots are pretty deep and tied in with this club.

"It's a difficult situation for them but we need to go out there and give them something to look forward to."
