Rangers are like a family, says Jelavic
Thursday 27 October 2011
Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic believes the side's togetherness has been crucial in their superb run of away wins in the league. They have won their last 13 games on the road with the loss of just one goal, which came in their title-clinching 5-1 victory over Kilmarnock in May.
The latest win came at Tynecastle, where Hearts had won four consecutive SPL games without conceding a goal. Jelavic, who scored a brilliant second in a 2-0 win, feels their new central defensive partnership of Carlos Bocanegra and Dorin Goian have been instrumental in this season's run, with goalkeeper Allan McGregor coming to the rescue when the backline is breached.
Jelavic, whose team face Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday, told said: "Hearts is always a hard place to go and take three points but we showed team spirit and character. Now we need to look forward to Aberdeen. It is always nice to win games, especially when you are not conceding goals. The whole team showed that we are like a family. We stick together."
