Mark Warburton has attempted to calm the fears of Rangers fans.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton is adamant that he won't revolutionise his tactics despite some poor recent performances, as quoted by The Scottish Sun.

Warburton has led Rangers to 12 wins from 14 league games this season, but performances have slipped off in recent weeks.

A defeat to Hibernian was no great shame considering that Alan Stubbs' men are also in the running for the title, but the 1-1 draw at Livingston has fans concerned.

Supporters have questioned Warburton's tactics of late, suggesting that Rangers need a Plan B for when the patient passing game doesn't open up defences.

So far, Warburton has resisted the chance to make drastic changes to his side, and has addressed those concerns earlier today.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Rangers boss Warburton says that he is aware of calls from supporters to incorporate new ideas should they struggle, but believes that his side simply need to better at executing Plan A.

Warburton claims that with better movement, better passing and better technique, Rangers can still be successful with the current tactics, rather than completely revolutionise the set up of the Gers side.

"The only way you learn is by mistakes. We have to look at it and we will be better for it," said Warburton. "The movement could be better, the timing of pass, the quality of first touch, all the things you take for granted. It relies on the technique and the boys work every day, their work ethic has been first class."

"But as I said it’s that little bit of cleverness and it’s what we do day in day out. So keep doing it, keep working hard and the results will come. I see calls for Plan B and Plan C and big strikers and being more direct. We’ve got to be better, Plan B is doing Plan A better. I’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, that’s what we have to do."

"Move the ball quicker, take greater care, better decision making, show the quality, get the rewards. That’s what we do and we rely on the experience of the older players as well. They’ve got a key role for us going forward, but there is no doubt the young players are learning, they are getting better week by week and we are in good shape right now,"
