Rangers midfielder Jason Holt reveals he "anticipated contact" as he went down inside the box during Sunday's draw with Ross County.
Holt was booked for diving by referee Andrew Dallas in the 67th minute after he went over the outstretched leg of County defender Marcus Fraser.
There appeared to be contact but the former Hearts player was non-committal when asked whether he felt he should have had a penalty.
Speaking to Rangers TV on Monday, Holt said: "I'm not sure. I anticipated the contact, whether it came or not I can't really remember, but I just got on with the game.
"We are really disappointed with how we went from really good last week to not so good this week."
Rangers were held 1-1 by County - who are rooted to the bottom of the Scottish Premiership - despite getting an early lead from Clint Hill's header.
Rangers squandered several chances to extend their lead but Hill and defensive partner Rob Kiernan got in each other's way as Andrew Davies levelled for County.
"Getting the goal so early was great and we had chances after that to go and get ourselves a cushion in the game but we obviously conceded, which was disappointing," said 23-year old Holt.
"Even after that we had chances in the second half which we are disappointed we didn't take."
Hold added: "We have a long time to think about the game now and analyse it and myself and I'm sure a lot of the boys will probably be thinking about the game and what we could have done better."
