Andy Walker believes Rangers have 'come to life' under Stuart McCall

Ex-Celtic ace Andy Walker has praised new Rangers boss Stuart McCall.

Former Celtic striker Andy Walker has told Sky Sports that Rangers have 'come to life' under new manager Stuart McCall.

McCall, 50, was appointed as the new Rangers boss earlier this month, and won his first game as their manager at the third attempt on Sunday, defeating Hibernian 2-0.

Goals from Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller gave Rangers all three points, and has handed them the chance to hunt Hibs down in second place.

The win snapped a run of five draws in a row, and McCall's decision to switch to a 5-3-2 formation seemed to spark a change in fortunes for Rangers.

Now, Rangers fans will be hoping that the club can kick on and move forward with McCall at the helm - and former Celtic striker Walker told Sky Sports that McCall has brought the club back to life - and noted the added work rate as one of the big improvements under his stewardship already.

"I think that was a big result for Rangers yesterday, because all of a sudden, they've come to life," said Walker. "I think a lot of those players have been kidding Stuart McCall on the last number of weeks."

"I've seen Rangers recently, and their performances have been abysmal - but yesterday, I watched them work as hard as they have worked all season. I think they're certainly capable of a lot more," he added.

Rangers now face Cowdenbeath at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, and McCall needs to make sure that they build on that win over Hibernian rather than allow it to be a one-off.
