New Rangers defender Danny Wilson has wasted no time in explaining his aims for the club, as he spoke to the Glasgow Evening Times.
Wilson told the newspaper that he feels Rangers simply have to make a strong fist of things this season, as they look to get promoted into the Scottish Premiership.
He doesn’t appear to be afraid of the pressure and seems determined to get the club into a good position, which they can defend over the course of a long campaign.
“I hope we can start achieving straight away. We have our goal to go up this year and it is so important for the club for that to happen,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“There is a lot of optimism about just now with the manager and the board. It is something I am looking forward to being a part of.”
“We have a lot of work to do to get the club back to where it needs to be, but it is work worth doing.”
Immediate priorities for Rangers
Wilson’s ambition and enthusiasm is admirable, but Rangers are a side with a new manager who has a big job in terms of motivating players and getting them to move from the way the club ended last season.
Warburton needs to quickly work out his key combination of players in each area of the team and he has to settle on the style, which he feels best suits them.
If he can gets his own philosophy across effectively in pre-season, Rangers have a better chance of hitting the ground running when the competitive action returns.
Promotion is vital for Rangers
Warburton has to go about those initial challenges while dealing with a pressure to get Rangers promoted from the Scottish Championship.
Promotion into the top flight of Scottish football is vital for a variety of reasons but predominantly for the immediate financial future of the football club and the development of the team.
Things are still tense at the club, but Warburton has a great chance of taking the club back to where they belong.
