Charlie Adam doubts Rangers' chances at recording an unbeaten season

The former Rangers man feels it might just be beyond the Scottish Championship side's reach.

Speaking as a studio guest on Sky Sports News HQ on Wednesday morning, Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam aired his thoughts on former club Rangers, and what they can hope to achieve under Mark Warburton this season.

"He has made some shrewd signings - bringing them in from Arsenal, Tottenham... a few from Wigan who have done really well," Adam said. "They should win the league."

Despite his praise for the Glaswegian side, however, Adam admitted that he still can't quite see Warburton's team playing out an unbeaten campaign, even with all the positivity currently surrounding Ibrox.

"I think it will be difficult for them to go the whole season unbeaten, but you never know," he said. "Winning games builds confidence and if you are, the games run out thick and fast."

Adam signed for Rangers as a 17-year-old back in 2003 and played there for six years in total, before heading south to test himself in the English footballing pyramid with Blackpool.

The 29-year-old's former club have won all five of their games in the Scottish Championship so far this season, while the new regime headed by Warburton is signalling the return of better times for one of the country's biggest clubs.

They have scored 19 goals and conceded just three in their blistering start to the new campaign, and are already beginning to pull away from their fellow promotion hopefuls in Scotland's second tier.

Up next for them this weekend is the visit of bottom side Livingston, who are yet to win any of their opening five fixtures and have secured just a point to their name.
