Lafferty looking for late-season form rise with Rangers

Kyle Lafferty admits that his last two months of action last season were his best games for Rangers.

The 23-year old Northern Ireland international striker says that he wants that form to return for the season run-in as 'Gers go after a third-straight Scottish Premier League title.

Lafferty has scored four times in the league this term but has indicated he is set to deliver for the Glasgow giants in the next few weeks.

"The final seven or eight games of last season were probably my best spell in a Rangers jersey," said Lafferty ahead of tonight's clash with Aberdeen.

"I think it was just a case of everything I hit going in! I didn't do anything different between the start of the season and the end, but everything went in my favour.

"Hopefully that is the same again this season. I want to go out again and score that are important to the team and hopefully help us to clinch the title.

"It's going to be an exciting eight games with so much still to play for," he added.

"We go in to every game looking to avoid dropping points but I think there will be a few more twists in the championship race.

"All we have to do is go out and try to get as many points as we can and try to put on a performance.

"I think it's harder for a team with a smaller squad. Celtic have a massive squad and they can pull players out and put others in."
