Chris Burke: Belief key to Killie taking point at Ibrox

in #KillieStories October 26, 2017

Chris Burke says Kilmarnock always believed they could achieve a positive result against Rangers.

The winger came off the bench to score in injury time during a dramatic ending to the Premiership clash at Ibrox.

Burke's goal ensured Killie moved off the bottom of the table in Steve Clarke's first match in charge and the former Scotland international was in no doubt the result was merited. 

He said: "I thought it was nothing that we didn't deserve. Especially second half. 

"Obviously Rangers had a couple of chances and you had to weather the storm, but I thought we took the game to them second half and could have ended up winning the game.

"Like any football game, if you stay in the game you have still got a chance. At 1-0, you always know you can take something from the game. And we believed that.

"Rangers could have made it two or three but they didn't. Second half we passed the ball better, we were creating chances, we were braver on the ball and in the end it must have been a great game to watch because it was a great game to play in.

"Coming to Ibrox as a person I think any game of football you can't just go out on the park and think you are going to get beat. 

"If you don't think you can win the match you might as well stay in the house. We are football players, we get paid to perform on the pitch and today I think we did that. We took one point and we could have taken all three.

"The fear factor at Rangers? You are probably asking the wrong person because I have played at Rangers, I don't fear anything. I don't think any player should fear anything, whether it is Parkhead, Ibrox or Pittodrie."
