Mark Warburton has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he had no doubts about the quality of Rangers' squad right from his very first training session at Ibrox.
Warburton took charge at Rangers at the beginning of the summer, and he noticed the talent he had at his disposal immediately.
“I had no doubt about their quality," he said in the Glasgow Evening Times. "We saw from the first day of pre-season training what they could achieve.
“They are hungry, they are committed, they are getting rewards for their hard work, which is important, and they are pushing forward. This break has come at a good time for us."
It is only under Warburton's stewardship that Rangers have started to show their class, after what was a highly problematic season last term.
The Light Blues never got going during the 2014/15 campaign, and they disappointingly missed out on promotion from the Scottish Championship.
However, since Warburton has taken charge they have been unstoppable, and still boast a 100 per cent record in the league.
Rangers have won their first nine matches, cruising past every opposition that they have faced - with the team playing some wonderful football.
The Gers are already nine points clear at the top of the division, and they return to action after the international break with a match against Queen of the South.
