It's all positive signs at Rangers, says Nicky Law

Mark Warburton’s new signings have earned the approval of the Rangers midfielder.

The former Brentford boss has wasted no time in re-shaping the Rangers squad following his arrival in June and current Gers midfielder Nicky law has been impressed with the new boy’s contribution so far.

Centre-backs Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson were joined by Wes Foderingham as Warburton’s first summer signings and Law feels like they are perfect for the manager’s style of play.

"They're really good lads and they fit into the philosophy of the manager," said Law in an interview with the Herald Scotland.

"They're ball-playing players even though it's a goalkeeper and two centre-halves.

The Gers midfielder has been impressed with the technical ability of both centre-backs as Mark Warburton endeavours to build a team capable of playing exciting, possession-based football.

"Everybody knows what Danny can do, he was excellent last season leading Hearts to the title and he's been excellent since he came in. You can see his quality and he's fantastic on the ball.”

On Kiernan, he said:

"Big Rob has impressed everybody. He's a big lad and he's got two great feet. I think some of the boys are still trying to work out what foot is Rob's preferred one, because he plays with both and he's so comfortable in possession.”

The philosophy of playing out from the back extends to new ‘keeper Wes Foderingham, who had experienced of that play-style in his time at Swindon, and Law is equally impressed with the 24-year old stopper.

"Wes has also come in and done great and he will provide great competition for us in goals, so the three that have come in so far have been very good, and I'm sure that the manager will be looking to add more players of that quality.

Rangers are unlikely to be done with their transfer business this summer and Andy Halliday is seemingly set to be the next arrival after his successful trial, as per the Daily Record.

Law is embracing the changes at Ibrox and feels things are on the up as the club look to return to the SPL at the second time of asking.

"It's all positive signs and we're all looking forward to the next couple of weeks and getting some more game-time under our belts, so that when the real games come around we'll be more used to the manager and his ideas and we'll be ready to go," said Law.

The 27-year old midfielder has been an ever-present for Rangers since his free transfer two years ago and he will hope to remain so while the environment around him continues to evolve.
