Rangers boss Warburton responds to claims his side are faltering

Glasgow Rangers currently top the Scottish Championship.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has assured the fans that his side are not beginning to falter despite people suggesting otherwise, the Evening Times reports.

The Gers saw their record-breaking 12-game winning start to the season end with a 2-1 defeat at Hibs three weeks ago, a result which has helped Hibs close the gap to just two points.

Still, Rangers bounced back with a 4-0 win over Alloa and could go five points clear if they win their game in hand, a scenario which has prompted Warburton to dismiss claims of his side faltering.

“We had a big lead at the start. We started strongly but other teams didn't start as strong as Rangers. People are saying Rangers are now faltering but we're not faltering,” the Evening Times quotes him as saying.

"Other teams are closing the gap because their winning games of football. All we can do is put our heads down, focus on Rangers and keep winning games.”

It’s looking increasingly like being a three-way battle for the Scottish Championship title this season, with the Glasgow outfit favourites ahead of current second placed Hibernian and Falkirk in third.

Incredibly, there are already 14 points separating Rangers from Greenock Morton in fourth and a goal difference swing of 31 clearly states the gap between the two at present.

Warburton has vastly improved Rangers’ fortunes during his six months in charge, with players such as Martin Waghorn and Jason Holt really coming in to their own.

There are a number of fixtures to play between now and Christmas, but that double-header against Falkirk and Hibs over the Christmas period could play a huge role come the end of the season.
