ABDALLAH Sima has reflected on a ‘special’ afternoon as he scored a double at Ibrox in a 4-0 victory over Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership.
The on-loan Brighton forward took his tally to nine goals this season, with seven in the last seven games, as he found the target alongside Nico Raskin and Cyriel Dessers in what was Philippe Clement’s first match in charge.
Speaking to RangersTV at full-time, Sima said: “I am very happy again to score here, for me it is really special to score at Ibrox for our fans. It is really important to score here but the most important thing is the three points, so I am very happy for me and for the team today as well.
“For a long time I haven't scored goals like that, I am very excited and very happy to be here. We have a big squad and big players, so they have helped my performances and my goals.
“We know we have to score goals and work hard because we are Rangers, and we have to win every game. I stay focused on my performance, and I will keep doing that to score goals and help the team.”
Sima insists the Rangers squad want to keep getting better and better under the new management team as they look ahead to a busy month of fixtures.
On the new manager, he continued: “I was talking to someone before he came, and they said he was a very good coach.
“We have to work hard as a team, we want to be better and better every game and with the new manager we had to start well so that's what we did today. Hopefully, we can continue like that and let's do more.”
