Rangers boss Mark Warburton’s response when asked about Hibernian defeat

Mark Warburton

Rangers boss Mark Warburton says that he is not concerned about Hibernian’s defeat to Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club’s official website that he was not following Hibernian’s match against Greenock Morton in midweek.

Hibernian lost 3-0 to Morton at home in the Scottish Championship on Wednesday evening.

Thomas O'Ware headed home the visiting team in the lead at Easter Road on 36 minutes.

Denny Johnstone and Ross Forbes scored in the second half to help Morton pick up all three points from the encounter in Edinburgh.

The defeat for Hibernian means that Alan Stubbs’s side are eight points behind leaders Rangers in second place in the standings.

When asked if he was keeping an eye on the score, Warburton told Rangers’ official website: “I’ve got to be honest - no. My son was texting me every 30 seconds, but it has to be about us still.

“Last night’s result doesn’t change anything for Rangers. We have to train well this week and prepare well for St Mirren.

“There are a number of teams chasing the last play-off spot, and as we saw last week at Queen of the South, those teams will give it a real go.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 63 points from 25 matches.

Hibernian are currently eight points behind the Gers in second place, and it seems that the Glasgow giants are now firm favourites to win the league title this season.

Rangers will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on St. Mirren at Ibrox, while Hibernian will face Dumbarton away from home.
