Ferguson, who played for the Gers in the 1990s and noughties, made the comments ahead of the Glasgow outfit’s game against Alloa Athletic away from home in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.
The Wasps have controversially trimmed the width of their plastic pitch at The Indodrill Stadium by nine metres for the match against Rangers.
Former Rangers midfielder Ferguson has suggested that Mark Warburton’s side should not be fussed about this and should take it in their stride.
“If Rangers want to go the distance this season then they’ll have to be prepared for people doing their utmost to get in their way,” Ferguson wrote in The Daily Record.
“If that gets up the nose of Warburton or his Rangers players and they come out with all guns blazing then maybe Alloa will end up regretting it. But you can’t blame them for trying.”
Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 59 points rom 23 matches. The Glasgow giants are eight points clear of second-placed Hibernian, who have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, Alloa currently find themselves at the foot of the standings with just 12 points from 23 matches.
