Aaron Ramsey has hailed the talent in the Rangers team after making his debut at Ibrox.

The Welsh midfielder appeared as a substitute during Rangers’ 5-0 victory over Hearts on Sunday.

And he expressed his hope of getting his fitness up quickly, having been short of game time at Juventus.

“It was a good one to come in on, obviously the boys played really well today,” he said in the post-match press conference.

“I’m just really happy to make my debut in front of that atmosphere, it was brilliant.

“So, hopefully now I can play a lot more and get my fitness up quickly and really get going here.”

Ramsey praised the quality of the goals scored, with Alfredo Morelos hitting two, and Glen Kamara, Scott Arfield and Fashion Sakala all getting onto the scoresheet.

He said: “There’s a lot of talent in this team and they showed that a few times today and scored some fantastic goals.

“So, yeah, hopefully I can fit right into this team and show what I can do as well.”

The on-loan midfielder acknowledged the expectations placed on the players at Ibrox.

“There’s a lot of pressure on the players here, this is a massive football club with a massive fanbase and there’s always pressure on this team to win,” he said.

“That’s one of the reasons why I came here to challenge for titles and I’m not surprised by the way the fans get behind the team and always want us to be on the front foot and to attack and to score as many goals as we can.

“This is Rangers Football Club so this is the way that we need to be.”

Reflecting on the Old Firm defeat to Celtic last week, Ramsey outlined the importance of responding well when faced with setbacks during the season.

He said: “We needed to show a reaction from the last result and we certainly did that.

“We’re a really good team with a lot of talented players.

“These results sometimes happen, I’ve had many of them in my career, but it’s how you respond to these little setbacks and we certainly done that today.”
