Queen of the South boss James Fowler discusses Rangers’ prospects of going unbeaten this season

The Gers' storming start has led to suggestions that they could achieve the unlikely feat.

Queen of the South manager James Fowler has become the latest figure in Scottish football to give his take on the growing idea that Rangers could go the whole season unbeaten during an interview with the Daily Record.

Mark Warburton’s men have enjoyed a blistering start and they currently sit top of the pile, with five wins from five and 19 goals scored in the process.

Queen of the South sit third, six points behind the Ibrox club, and Fowler believes Rangers’ strength in depth could make the unlikely feat achievable.

“Rangers are a different proposition to what they were last season,” said the former Killie man, in quotes published by the Daily Record.

“Going unbeaten is a very difficult thing to do in any league but Rangers have real strength in depth.

“If Rangers do what Hearts did last season and run away with the league then they will be looking to set new challenges for themselves,” he added.

Fowler joins Raith Rovers boss Ray McKinnon and Greenock Morton legend Allan McGraw in talking up the Gers' prospects of a season unbeaten and it’s no surprise given what the new management team have achieved in such a short space of time.

Rangers’ strength in depth is far superior to their Championship rivals and comments, such as Fowler’s, from opposition managers will only add to the increasing fear-factor whenever teams line up against Warburton’s side.
