Rangers won 4-1 against Livingston at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has suggested on the club’s official website that he was not pleased with his side’s performance in the second half against Livingston on Saturday afternoon.

The Gers maintained their good run of form with a 4-1 victory over Livingston at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship.

All four of Rangers’ goals came in the first half, while the visitors pulled one back in the second period.

Warburton has said that he was pleased with his team’s performance in the first 45 minutes, and has made it clear that his players should have done more after the half-time interval.

“We were really pleased with the football in the first half,” the Englishman told Rangers’ official website. “We came out hard and fast and thoroughly deserved the lead at half time. It was a good performance for us and we created a lot of chances.

“The second half we created lots of chances but we weren’t clinical enough and we didn’t get the rewards in front of goal in the final third. We were maybe a little bit laboured in front of goal and with the final pass.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Ibrox, hosts Rangers had 63% of the possession, took 16 shots of which nine were on target, and earned 16 corners.

Visiting Livingston had only 37% of the possession, took four shots of which three were on target, and earned one corner.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 50 points from 20 matches, as many as six points clear of second-placed Falkirk.
