David Weir explains what he told Rangers squad in training on Monday

David Weir wants Rangers to be focused after the international break.

Rangers assistant manager David Weir has told the club's official website that he and the rest of the coaching staff gave a warning to the squad on Monday.

The Gers have enjoyed a remarkable start to the season, winning all nine of their Scottish Championship games so far to leave them at the top of the table, whilst they have lost just once in all competitions this term.

New manager Mark Warburton has proven just why Rangers worked so hard to bring him in as Stuart McCall's replacement this summer, with his management earning plaudits early in to the season.

This weekend, Rangers face Queen of the South at Ibrox, with Warburton's men looking to continue their fine form after the two-week international break.

Now, assistant manager David Weir has admitted to the club's official website that the Rangers squad were given a strong message when they returned to training on Monday, with the Gers staff telling their players to immediately focus on the task at hand after a well-earned break.

"The team trained really well after they came back in, and credit to them for that. They earned their time off, got away and had a break and have come back refreshed," said Weir. "We spoke to them before training yesterday to remind them that it’s important for us to get straight back into it today and to get back up and running. We have some really important games coming up, and they are already back on track with their focus for regards to winning football games," he added.

Warburton will be looking to keep that 100% winning record in tact this weekend, and winning the first ten games of the season would be a huge achievement, particularly with Rangers having one goal this season - winning promotion to the Scottish Premiership. For Rangers, Warburton and Weir, it's been a case of so far, so good.
