Justin Andrews has explained to the Glasgow Evening Times what he feels will be Mark Warburton’s first thought at Rangers when the competitive action returns for the Ibrox club next month.
Andrews is a former colleague of the Rangers manager, they worked together on the NextGen series, and he feels that Warburton’s first intention at the club will be to engage with the fans and give them a side they can really get behind.
“His first objective is to make the stadium a great place to go and watch football again,” Andrews told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“I read comments about how at Rangers you have to win every game. He will be thinking ‘I have to win these fans over’.”
“And to do that they have to have something to come and watch and enjoy. You will get end-to-end football, attacking play.”
Is open football the best option?
All-out attack is entertaining to watch but Warburton certainly can’t urge his team to be reckless as they go about winning promotion from the Scottish Championship.
A healthy balance needs to be achieved or Rangers could find themselves exposed on by clever managers and teams that can absorb pressure effectively.
Supporters will want to see a good brand of football, but not a style which creates more problems than answers as Warburton is building his reputation at the club.
If the fans see a manager, a team and a style they feel they can be proud of then they will keep coming back to support the team, regardless of whether Rangers have won, drawn or lost.
