Andy Halliday has explained to the Glasgow Evening Times that he believes many of Rangers summer signings didn’t realise the pressure that they would be under at Ibrox, prior to joining.
The Light Blues are expected to win every match they play at Scottish Championship level, and it has been a steep learning curve for the new additions.
However, Halliday feels that his new teammates have coped well with the transitional period, and he is pleased to see the squad performing so well.
“There have been a lot of new signings who were maybe not quite used to pressure like this at previous clubs, or who didn’t know the demands at Rangers,” Halliday said.
“But I think the boys who have come in here this season have handled the weight of the jersey very well. Long may that continue."
Rangers went through a transitional period during the summer transfer window, with Mark Warburton making a lot of changes to their squad.
The Light Blues fell short of expectations last season, and there was a clear-out of a number of the players who had failed to perform.
Warburton purchased smartly in the summer though, and his recruitment policy has already paid dividends, with most his signings slotting in with ease.
Rangers have won 12 of their first 13 league matches, and they have already established a five-point lead at the top of the Scottish Championship, putting them in a strong position to achieve promotion.
