Steve McClaren accepted that it was probably because of the move he made of replacing a playmaker with a forward when the Rangers were trailing by one goal that Hull was able to score another one and stretch their advantage to two goals and virtually ended the possibility of a Rangers’ victory.
According to McClaren, when you are in a situation like that where you are trailing, you have to opt for risky moves at times. When he made that move, he was well aware that it could backfire too, but he had no other option than to go for it. Attack is the only way to go in such situations.
“When you gamble – and we had to gamble – you can be on the wrong end of it.” McClaren was quoted saying by FOOTBALL PARADISE.
“We were always susceptible to that third goal. That’s what happens when you throw caution to the wind which we had to do.” McClaren added.
