McLeish disappointed with point
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Under-fire Rangers manager Alex McLeish
Rangers manager Alex McLeish was left frustrated after being held to a second Champions League draw by Artmedia.

He said: "I've got to be disappointed - scoring two goals away from home and not winning the game.

"And the manner in which we gave away the goals, especially the second, takes away from a terrific performance.

"We could have been going home with a wonderful result but the players have shown what they are capable of and we can build on this."

Artmedia were gifted their second goal when Ibrox goalkeeper Ronald Waterreus collided with team-mate Brahim Hemdani.

Waterreus gave away a soft goal against Livingston last week and Dutchman appeared to be the main culprit on this occasion.

But McLeish would not be drawn on apportioning any blame.

"It's not the time to point fingers at anybody," was all the manager would say.

Rangers must travel to Porto next and end the group campaign at home to section leaders Inter Milan.

The Portuguese are two points behind Rangers and will be out of the running should they fail to win, while Artmedia share the same points and goal difference as the Scots.

"We have two games left and they will both be difficult," added McLeish.

"But they are special nights and we love being involved in this competition."

Artmedia coach Vladimir Weiss had mixed feelings after the game.

He said: "We could have lost the game because it didn't start very well but, on the other hand, we could have won the game because we had more chances than Rangers."
