Madjid Bougherra confesses confidence is low at Ibrox but he is confident Rangers can still end Celtic's three-year stranglehold on the Scottish Premier League title.
Rangers have not landed league silverware since 2005 and the domestic crown is a priority on the blue half of Glasgow.
However, home defeat to Inverness on Wednesday night - coupled with Celtic's win at Kilmarnock - saw Walter Smith's men knocked off top spot by their derby rivals.
Bougherra was left disappointed by the midweek setback, but the former Charlton player remains upbeat.
"We now have some weeks without a league game and the confidence is not good," he said.
"But we know what we have to do. Before, we were seven points behind and we came back. Now it is three points.
"We are disappointed for ourselves, for the fans, and we have to show that we can come back again.
"It will be difficult but we have 10 games left and it is better to lose now than in the last five games.
"We have to show that we can lose and then come back and do the right thing. Maybe we will have a good run and push hard."
