Rangers signed Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan over the summer.

Rangers have started the season in exceptional form, and speaking to the Evening Times, Gers legend John Brown has singled out two players for praise who have gone under the radar somewhat due to all of the goals the Light Blues have been scoring - Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson.

The former defender said: “You have to remember they are only a few games into a new partnership in a new team. Overall they have done very well. They have handled the Championship and have a number of clean sheets. It is work in progress and the more games they play together the better they will become.”

Considering the highlights of Rangers’ season have been the exceptional attacking play they have shown, it has gone under the radar just how impressive the defensive side of their game has been as well.

Despite scoring 28 goals in eight league games - 18 more than anyone else - and playing all-out attacking football, the Gers have only let in four goals over the course of the campaign, with Wilson and Kiernan as Mark Warburton’s first-choice centre-back partnership.

They have formed a rock solid defensive wall, keeping four clean sheets in eight games, which Brown praises considering the fact that the first time they played together was this season.

They are only going to improve as the season progresses, and as they build more experience alongside one another, and it would be no surprise to see Rangers end the season with a record breaking attack - as well as a record breaking defence.
