Mark Warburton describes mood in Rangers dressing room following latest Ibrox victory

Rangers FC Stands

Mark Warburton has served a warning to his Rangers side after the 2-1 win over Queen of the South.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that he was pleased with Jason Holt's display against Queen of the South - but urged his side to focus on Tuesday's game against Livingston.

Rangers went in to today's game against Queen of the South searching for a tenth win from ten games in the Scottish Championship, but fell behind as Derek Lyle stunned Ibrox with the opening goal for the visitors.

After half time, Rangers came out and equalised through Jason Holt, and whilst it looked like they wouldn't land all three points when Martyn Waghorn missed a late penalty, the striker bounced back by scoring the winning goal in added time.

Warburton's men sit nine points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship table, and with their 100% winning record still intact, the buoyant atmosphere in the blue half of Glasgow remains.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Warburton admitted that the mood in the dressing room is one of delight right now - but said that his side must now focus on the Challenge Cup tie against Livingston on Tuesday evening.

"It's enjoying itself!" said Warburton when asked how the dressing room was. "But now the focus is Tuesday. We've got another game on Tuesday, and we have to be best prepared for that, and if we are going to have a successful season, we've got to make sure we are best prepared. It's all about the preparation; eating well, sleeping well, training well on Monday, and making sure we're in good shape."

Warburton also added that Holt, a summer signing from Hearts, was one of Rangers' stand-out performers against Queen of the South, and highlighted just how important the midfielder is to what the Gers do.

"He had a really good game today. [I was] very impressed by Jason; his movement, his awareness, his tenacity, his work rate, his commitment. He's united behind what we have to do, and that's key for us," he added.
