Alan Hutton paid tribute to Rangers' performance as a team after starring in the 2-1 victory over Stuttgart on Wednesday.
Rangers looked to be slipping to defeat in their opening UEFA Champions League group game when Mario Gomez put the Bundesliga champions ahead early in the second half.
But Hutton played a key role in Rangers' comeback as he set up Charlie Adam for the equaliser and then won the penalty which was converted by Jean-Claude Darcheville to win the game.
Hutton admits it was one of his finest individual displays but is hoping to keep on improving.
He said: "I've had a couple of good performances and that has to be up there. It was one of my best.
"I have self-belief and the manager has belief in me as well and that makes it all the better. I'm just looking to grow this season, do the best that I can and hopefully get even better.
"It was brilliant to see those goals go in. It's great to be part of the team and it's even more special to be involved in both goals."
Don't write us off
Hutton accepts that it will still be difficult to progress from a group that also includes Barcelona and Lyon, but believes Rangers have a chance.
"We have got off to the best possible start by getting three points on the board and we can only go forward, build on this and hopefully get more points," said the full-back.
"We have been written off since day one so there is no pressure on us, we can just go out and play football and hopefully it will be enough to go through.
"It was vital to get off to a good start, and we have to do well in our home games.
"We have a lot of tough games coming up so it was important to get a good start."
