Rangers fans react on Twitter to manager Mark Warburton's Ibrox debut

The Gers lost 1-0 to Burnley in Glasgow, but there were plenty of positives for a club hoping to make big steps forward next season.

New Rangers boss Mark Warburton took charge of his first match at Ibrox on Tuesday night when the Gers welcomed Burnley to Glasgow.

In what was a serious test against opposition that were only recently in the Premier League, the former Brentford manager put together a side that was made up of several new signings who would have surely had little opportunity to work on team chemistry.

Home debuts were given to as many as seven new players by Warburton and his assistant David Weir, with Wes Foderingham, James Tavernier, Rob Kiernan, Andy Halliday, Martyn Waghorn all starting at Ibrox for the first time. Midfielder Jason Holt was playing as a trialist before he officially joins, while Danny Wilson made his second debut since arriving from Hearts.

Scott Arfield scored the game's only goal as he curled the ball home on 34 minutes to give the visitors the victory, but the club's change in playing style under Warburton was noticeable to supporters, particularly in the first half.

Next up for Warburton is a Scottish Challenge Cup match against Hibs on Saturday.

Below is a selection of some comments relating to the match, with Gers fans largely impressed with the football their side was playing, despite what ended up being a 1-0 loss to the Clarets
