STEVEN DAVIS reckons Rangers proved their ability to react in the face of adversity as they bounced back from their Scottish Cup exit with a storming Old Firm win at Ibrox.

The champions moved to within two matches of an unbeaten Premiership campaign as they saw off Celtic on Sunday and clinched a fourth win of the season against John Kennedy's side.

Rangers found themselves under criticism last week following their shock defeat to St Johnstone that ended their ambitions of completing a league and cup double this term.

But Davis was pleased to see Steven Gerrard's side get back on track at the first attempt as they produced an accomplished performance to clinch a comfortable win.

Davis said: "Absolutely delighted. After the disappointment of last week, it was a good game for us because we knew the importance of it.

"We turned up today and put in a really good performance. Probably if we are being ultra critical, we were a bit sloppy in the second half at times and gave possession away but overall we are all delighted and it was a really strong performance.

"That is the most important thing. There are going to be setbacks along the road and it is important that you bounce back straight away.

"We managed to do that today, we were 1-0 up and then conceded so early after it. The sending off changed the game a little bit but overall I think we were excellent and thoroughly deserved the win. We want to finish the season strongly in the remaining two games now.

"After the disappointment of going out of the cup, it was important that we reset ourselves and tried to finish the season as strongly as possible.

"We have still got aims we want to try and achieve and this was a big step in the right direction today. We have two games remaining and we will try and get maximum points from them as well."
