STUART ARMSTRONG hopes to push the overwhelming disappointment of the Europa League setback against Molde into the background with a victory over Ross County tomorrow.
The SPFL champions have the opportunity to get back on track with a visit to Dingwall to take on dangerous opponents who started this morning in fifth place in the table.
A clearly dejected Ronny Deila has had his say and it is time now for his players to do their talking on the pitch against Jim McIntyre’s team who will do everything possible to capitalise on any lingering form loss by the visitors.
Midfielder Armstrong, who also struggled to make an impact against the Norwegians, said: “We always knew Molde were dangerous on the counter-attack from the previous games and videos, but I just don’t think we were clinical enough in possession and, ultimately, that was our downfall.
“We had a couple of efforts and Mikael Lustig had a header pushed off the line, but, overall in the second-half, there wasn’t a lot to talk about on the attacking front and that was disappointing.
“We had a lot of possession, but Nir Bitton’s sending-off ended that and the lasting feeling is just one of disappointment.
”However, we need to remain optimistic in these situations. Now we have a game against Ross County and it’s a different game and different competition and all we can do is try to bounce back and make sure we put in a good performance there.”
