Peter Lovenkrands predicts Rangers will go season unbeaten under Warburton

Former Rangers hero Peter Lovenkrands believes the club will go the whole season unbeaten.

Former Rangers winger Peter Lovenkrands has told the Daily Express that his former club have the ability to go the whole season unbeaten.

After appointing new manager Mark Warburton this summer, Rangers look like a completely different side than the one which ended last season with a thumping play-off defeat to Motherwell.

Saturday's 5-0 victory over Raith Rovers makes it nine wins out of nine games for Warburton, maintaining his 100% record as Rangers boss.

There is a feel-good factor and a real buzz around Ibrox once again, one which hasn't been seen or felt since the club's financial meltdown in 2012.

Now, former Rangers hero Peter Lovenkrands - who hit 54 goals in six years at Ibrox - has told The Express that Rangers can keep up their unbeaten record for the duration of the season, and achieve a remarkable, historic feat in the process.

"I’ve been very surprised by the start. I didn’t expect it to be that good – they’ve been fantastic," said Lovenkrands. "I can see them going unbeaten this season, I can’t see who’s going to beat them, they’re going to score too many goals."

"They may draw a game occasionally, but I can’t see them losing, and I don’t want to jinx it, I hope they can do it, but they’re looking really, really good. I think it’s the manager definitely [that has made the difference], what he’s done, and the players he’s brought in, they’ve made a big difference," he added.

It's clearly early days for Warburton at Rangers, but so far they have shown that they are clearly the best team in the Scottish Championship.

There will be off days for Rangers, and Hibernian will certainly be gunning to beat Rangers this season - but if Warburton can keep his side playing like they have so far, an unbeaten season certainly isn't out of the equation.
