Rangers’ Kenny Miller explains the message given by Mark Warburton and David Weir

Rangers have started the season in exceptional form.

Rangers have yet to lose a game in the Scottish Championship, and Kenny Miller has told the official club website the message that Mark Warburton and David Weir have been getting across to the players.

The striker said: “The manager [Warburton] and David Weir are always big on trying to make the lads know what it is to play for Rangers and the demands and intensity that comes along with it.”

When Warburton was appointed manager in the summer, he was tasked with rebuilding a side with little identity, into a team who could win promotion this season.

So far, he looks well on course to achieving this aim, with a group of players who appear to have bought into his methodology, and the history and philosophy of Rangers as a football club.

This is what Warburton has been hoping to get across to his players, according to Miller - the message of what it means to play for Rangers.

This means working hard for the fans, and going out to win every game you take part in, and so far it appears as if all the summer signings are upholding this philosophy.

Warburton was always going to face a tough challenge to truly build a playing squad with character and identity, but it says much about his own management abilities - and the players he brought to the club - that Rangers have started the season in the brilliant manner that they have.
