The Gers’ won 3-0 to secure passage into the second round of the Scottish League Cup, and manager Mark Warburton took to Twitter to praise the work ethic of his players during the tie.
So many positives from the game. Players showing tremendous work ethic. Want them to get their rewards for the efforts by being clinical— Mark Warburton (@MarkWarburton9) August 3, 2015
Goals from David Templeton, Kenny Miller and James Tavernier rounded off the victory, showcasing further development in Rangers progression to achieve Championship promotion.
Following the 6-2 victory over Hibs towards the end of July, the Light Blues are making impressive strides forward under Warburton, and both games have shown the high pressing system that he wants to bring to the club.
This requires all the players to give their all for the entire game, and the coach was impressed with the ethic shown during the win over Peterhead. If the players continue to put in performances of such style and work rate, they should find no trouble in adaptaing completely to Warburton’s tactical systems.
However, Warburton did single out an issue that Rangers need to improve upon, with their profligate nature in front of goal stopping them from recording an even greater victory.
Of the 27 chances against Peterhead, an impressive 13 were on target, but they only managed to find the back of the net three times. If the Rangers players could improve their finishing ability, they should have no trouble pushing aside all rivals in the race to get out of the Championship this coming season.
