Le Guen: 'I have never felt such pressure'

GLASGOW Nov 7 (Reuters) - Rangers manager Paul Le Guen said he has never been under so much pressure in his career since taking charge of the stuttering Scottish Premier League side this season.

They trail league leaders and city rivals Celtic by 15 points after 13 games and Frenchman Le Guen believes the cup competitions are the club's best chance of success.

'For a club like Rangers there is not a transition period and I am aware of that and we need to win games, win titles even if we choose the difficult way with young players, new players,' Le Guen said.

Asked if he had ever faced such sustained, intense pressure former Lyon manager Le Guen replied: 'Perhaps not, but with experience I can cope with that and...in football, when you don't win then you must shut your mouth and try to do your best.'

Rangers are at home to second division leaders St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup quarter finals on Wednesday and Le Guen agreed the match had taken on more significance following their disappointing 2-1 defeat at lowly Dundee United last weekend.

'Yes, it is a very important game for everybody,' he said.

'We won't give up in all competitions, but perhaps , yes, (the cups are our best chance of a trophy)...that's why I told you it is an important game for us.

'I understand the expectation of the fans, I was a fan of a team when I was young and I understand that, but I think they can understand we try our best and we're not so far (away).

'I understand they are disappointed but we are all involved and we need their support.'

League Cup holders Celtic face Falkirk and Kilmarnock play Motherwell on Tuesday. Wednesday's other quarter-final is between Hibernian and Hearts.
