Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he feels the key for the club moving forward is having a happy and unified dressing room.
Rangers are going to be under real pressure once the competitive action gets underway following the hard work of pre-season, with Warburton stressing that everything needs to be aimed towards players feeling comfortable and happy.
“You have to think about words like 'harmony' and 'unity' within the squad. I am a big supporter of that and we build our season around those type of attributes,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“To have that, you have got to make sure it is a happy dressing room. You have to make sure everyone is happy and understands where they stand.”
Best chance of a good start
If Warburton can ensure that he’s got a settled and contented squad before the game against St Mirren in the Scottish Championship, the team should be able to get off to a good start.
It’s important for Rangers to try and secure some impressive early results, which allows them to build a little bit of momentum moving forward.
If they can create an early gap then, despite the fact it’s a long season, it’s going to be difficult for opposition teams to overhaul them.
Rangers have enough quality and experience running through the team to be able to defend an advantageous position.
They’ve also got the bitter taste of missing out on promotion last season at the hands of Motherwell to use as collective inspiration, to ensure that everyone is pulling together in the right direction.
