David Weir stresses the importance of spreading goals throughout the Rangers team

The Gers have bagged 19 goals in their first five Scottish Championship games.

Rangers assistant manager David Weir has praised the Gers' goal-scoring ability across the pitch and stressed the importance of sharing the burden among the team.

Weir’s troops have already netted five times on four occasions, with the season still in its infancy, and it’s their ability to threaten from all areas that will be such a concern for the rest of the division.

“There's goals throughout the team and that's the best way to be, rather than relying on one person,” Weir told Rangers TV.

“Martyn Waghorn has eight goals now, Halliday has a couple, Kenny has five and a lot of players are contributing goals wise.

“I think it's important to get goals from all areas of the pitch, if we can do that then we've a better chance of being successful.”

Mark Warburton’s free-scoring bunch have indeed shared the goals so far this campaign, with no fewer than eight separate goal-scorers registering.

It’s an indication of the philosophy Warburton has sought to implement at the club and each player, regardless of position, is expected to contribute both in an attacking and defensive sense.

The recruitment approach from the start of the summer was clearly targeted towards players comfortable in possession, those who could carry out the instructions of the former Brentford boss, and Rangers are now reaping the rewards of their considered business.
