Dado Prso gives verdict on Warburton's start, comments on Rangers supporters

Dado Prso believes Rangers will be in the top flight next season.

Former Rangers striker Dado Prso has told The Scottish Sun that the club's recent demise 'really upset' him, but believes things are looking up under new manager Mark Warburton.

Prso, 40, became a hero at Ibrox having signed for Rangers from Monaco back in 2004, with his 37 goals in 123 games making him a key player for the club.

The Croatian hitman left Rangers in 2007 and retired, but it's clear that he has kept a close eye on his former club - even through their recent struggles.

Rangers' demotion due to financial problems meant that they had to start back down in the fourth tier of Scottish football in 2012, and after successive promotion, they came up to the second tier in 2014 - but couldn't win promotion to the top flight last season, losing to Motherwell in the play-offs.

Those financial issues have haunted Rangers in recent years, but new owner Dave King has the club moving forward again, and Prso is certainly impressed.

Prso has told The Scottish Sun that, having won nine out of nine league games under new manager Mark Warburton, Rangers are getting back to where they should be - and believes the club are set for promotion, before praising the club's loyal supporters.

"It was tough watching what happened. It really upset me," said Prso. "But I see now that things are better and the right people are running the club. The team is doing well and next season they will be in the Premiership, and that is so important for Scottish football."

"This is one of the great clubs in Europe. It doesn’t matter which division they are in, the supporters are the most important thing. They have always been behind the club. They have never walked away and that says everything about them. When the club needed them most, the supporters were there backing them," he added.
