Inverness Focused On Their Own Game

Sympathy for the opposition has no place on the football pitch.

Striker Billy McKay insists Inverness cannot afford to think about the plight of Rangers ahead of today's meeting of the two sides in the SPL. Decisions are due to be made by the administrators regarding staffing in the football department this week. Today could be the last Rangers game for some of the visitors but McKay is keen to for the Highland side focus on their own game rather than be distracted by events surrounding their guests. The former Northampton forward said: "We have just been focusing on ourselves. Obviously it's not a good situation for them to be in, or for Scottish football. But we have just got to concentrate on ourselves and turn up on Sunday in the right frame of mind. It's a situation they have put themselves in. It's hard for the players but they have got to get on with it. Hopefully they come back out of administration stronger." McKay, who began his professional career at Leicester has never experienced the financial uncertainty facing his opponents. He said McKay: "I haven't been there. I have spoken to a few players that have, who didn't know when or if they were going to get paid, and it's not a nice situation to be in. But we have just got to go in with the right attitude and perform." Inverness will go into the game in the Highland capital 10 points off the top six but McKay believes they can push for the top six in the seven games before the split. He said: "Hopefully I can get back in the team and keep my place, work hard and score some goals and get us in the top six. We believe in ourselves that we can go on a run to the split and get in the top six. Every game we'll be looking to at least pick up a point, if not more, and get in the top six."
