Stuart McCall believes Rangers will end up winning the Scottish Championship title this season.

Former Rangers player and manager Stuart McCall has told Sky Sports that he thinks the Gers will end up winning the Scottish Championship this term.

McCall, 51, made over 250 appearances for Rangers as a player during the 1990's, before returning to the club in March as their new manager.

With seven wins from 17 games, McCall did a solid job during his three month spell in charge, but failure to beat Motherwell in the play-offs ultimately led to his exit over the summer.

Mark Warburton was lured to Glasgow as his replacement, and so far, the Brentford boss has been a breath of fresh air at Ibrox, winning 13 of his 15 league games in charge.

That record means Rangers sit top of the Scottish Championship table, but sit just three points clear of Hibernian in what looks like being a fiercely contested title race.

Speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports, former Gers boss McCall admitted that he believes Rangers and Warburton will bring in more top players in January having enjoyed a fruitful summer window.

McCall also predicted that Rangers will eventually run out Scottish Championship title winners, handing them promotion back to the Premiership ahead of Hibernian.

"I think with the transfer window, Mark has brought the players he would like to bring in in the summer," said McCall. "He got backed by the board and brought some really good players in, and I'm sure, come January, he'll do so again, but it will be interesting to see what Hibs do."

"I think Mark can only concentrate on Rangers, and the way they're playing and the way they're going, I would imagine they'll get there in the end, and be successful in their aim to be champions," he added.
