Rangers boss Warburton on what he was told if Gers played Barcelona

Mark Warburton

Rangers are playing in the Scottish Championship at the moment.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told The Daily Mail what he was told about the expectations of the fans at Ibrox.

“Someone said on my first day here that if we were playing Barcelona the next day at Ibrox then the fans would expect to win,” said Warburton. “They can be booed off at half-time even if it's 1-0, even though they will be cheered back on again.”

Warburton was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer, and the Englishman has done a brilliant job at Ibrox so far this season.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 13 matches.

The Gers are two points clear of second-place Hibernian, but they have a game in hand.

The Glasgow-based outfit, who have lost just once in the league so far this campaign, have a huge fanbase.

Rangers regularly get over 40,000 fans for their home matches, and that is something to be proud of.

Despite being in the Scottish Championship, expectations on the players are massive, and it seems that Warburton understands that perfectly.

Rangers will take on Livingston away from home in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.
