Inverness defender Carl Tremarco insists he would be happy to forgo goals as Caley bid to end winless drought against Rangers



Inverness leading scorer Carl Tremarco insists he would be happy to forgo more goals if it means picking up victories – starting against Rangers on Friday.

The defender notched his seventh of the campaign to put Caley ahead in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Hearts.e

Left-back Tremarco, however, is adamant that his scoring exploits mean nothing with Caley still rooted to the bottom of the table.

Speaking to Caley Jags TV, he said: “I’d be quite happy not to get anywhere near the goal again as long as we start winning games and keeping clean sheets. I’ll let the boys up front take care of that.”

Tremarco insists the battling display at Tynecastle, just a week after being thrashed 6-0 by Celtic in the William Hill Scottish Cup, has given the players a lift as they bid to clinch a win over Rangers that will see the Highland side leap-frog 11th placed Hamilton.

He added: “Everyone is happy and it’s something to build on, we’ll go into Friday with confidence and looking to move off the bottom of the table.

“If you had given us a point before the game we would definitely have taken it, it’s a tough place.

“We said during the week that we needed characters, we needed leaders, we needed do the talking on the park and I think we more than did that.”
