Amidst relentless pressure from the hosts, Rangers’ defensive duo of Leon Balogun and John Souttar held firm, reigniting the team’s aspirations for another title success.

Reflecting on his milestone 20th goal, Dessers expressed satisfaction but voiced his hunger for more while speaking to Sky Sports Scotland.

He acknowledged the significance of his goal and believed they deserved it for their efforts, but admitted that they anticipated the challenges beforehand.

If you told me I’d have scored twenty goals at the start of the season, I’d have taken it, but now I have a couple more assists, so for sure it feels good, but I want more than this,” Dessers said.

With 20 goals and 8 assists in 49 appearances for Rangers this season, Dessers continues to set the bar high, eager to scale new heights and lead his team to important title glory.
