Andy Walker discusses Rangers January transfer plans, criticises tactics away from Ibrox

Andy Walker believes Rangers need experience in January.

Pundit Andy Walker has told Sky Sports that he thinks Rangers struggle away from home - and called on them to add experience in January.

The Gers opened the season with 11 straight wins in the Scottish Championship, but have found life a little trickier since then.

With just eight points picked up from their last six games, Rangers are in something of a slump at the moment, especially after their defeat away at Falkirk on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers are now level on points with Hibernian at the top of the table, and the two sides face off on Monday afternoon in a much-anticipated encounter between the two front-runners for the Scottish Championship title.

Ahead of that game, ex-Celtic striker and current pundit Andy Walker has had his say on Rangers' current situation, and it's fair to say that he isn't too impressed right now.

Walker told Sky Sports that he feels Rangers are set up fine at home, but struggle away from Ibrox - something proved by the fact that they have picked up just one point from their last three away games.

Walker also looked ahead to the January transfer window, and urged Gers boss Mark Warburton to bring in some more experience to help a youthful squad overcome their current wobble.

"Rangers at home are very good but away they have a lot of problems because teams like Falkirk play two up against them and Rangers struggle to cope with that the way they are playing," said Walker. "It's not so long ago they were going to Easter Road with the chance to go 11 points clear at the top. Hibs have now drawn that back, are level and the pair meet at Ibrox on December 28 in which will be a fantastic occasion."

"It will be interesting to see what they do in the January transfer window. I think they need a bit of experience. As I said before, they are OK at home but away they need someone with a bit of experience and someone to calm them down and you can imagine Mark Warburton and Davie Weir have enough contacts in English football to get a player or two in on loan," he added.
