New Rangers manager Mark Warburton explained on talkSPORT the sort of football that the club’s fans can look forward to with him in charge.
Warburton has been confirmed as the man who will look to guide the club back into the Scottish Premiership, with the experienced David Weir next to him as number two.
He’ll be under pressure to compete for promotion from the very first game of the competitive season, but he wants to go about the campaign in the right way.
“What we want is to dominate the football and to control games – If sides want to play 30-yards and go long and win the league then fair enough, but that’s not what we want to do – We want to play football,” he said.
Warburton showed with Brentford in the English Championship that he can get a group of players to buy into his philosophy quickly and easily.
There were plenty of sides Brentford were competing against last season, who had bigger budgets and higher profile players, but Warburton got his team playing a simple and effective style of football which was popular with the fans.
It’s important that Rangers win consistently next season, but it’s important they win in a fashion which pleases the fans and makes them proud to get right behind the team.
Rangers have plenty of players who are well suited to playing heavily possession based football and Warburton will trust each of his players to have the quality to get the better of their direct opponents.
If the players win the majority of their individual battles in games next season, the ‘Gers won’t go far wrong.
