Dave King reviews Warburton's start at Rangers, discusses bright future at Ibrox

Dave King says Mark Warburton's start to life at Rangers has been impressive.

Rangers chairman Dave King has told the club's official website that he has been impressed with how manager Mark Warburton and his assistant David Weir have started their life at Ibrox.

King took control of Rangers towards the end of last season, and chose to replace Stuart McCall with Warburton during the summer, following the latter's exit from Brentford.

So far, King's decision has certainly paid dividends as Rangers have won 11 of their 12 Scottish Championship games, with the first defeat of the campaign coming against Hibernian on Sunday.

With a five point lead at the top of the Scottish Championship, Rangers have got off to a flying start, and Warburton's work as manager has been a huge factor in their success.

How Rangers respond from losing their first league game this season remains to be seen, but chairman King is certainly impressed with his appointments.

Speaking to the club's official website, King has credited Warburton and assistant Weir for getting the Rangers to team to perform 'extremely well', whilst he also believes that Rangers have a brighter future ahead of them, largely due to his influence since gaining control at Ibrox.

"A new football management team of Mark Warburton and David Weir is now in place and the team is performing extremely well on the pitch, staffing levels are improving at Ibrox and Auchenhowie, and there is once again a genuine belief that the Club faces a much brighter future," said King.

With promotion the aim this season, Rangers could be back in the Scottish Premiership soon - and they will be setting their sights on challenging Celtic for the title if they do win promotion this season, with King's assertion that brighter times are ahead for Rangers being very realistic.
