Scottish manager, also a Celtic fan, makes an admission about Ibrox side Rangers

Mark Warburton

Ibrox side Rangers won against Peterhead in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup on Sunday.

Peterhead manager Jim McInally has told The Daily Record that he enjoys watching Rangers.

McInally, who started his professional club football career at Celtic and is a fan of the Bhoys, made the admission prior to the Scottish Challenge Cup final between Rangers and Peterhead at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Sunday afternoon.

The former Nottingham Forest midfielder believes that the Gers’ matches are much more entertaining to watch than some of the Premier League games.

“I was at their game against Falkirk a few weeks and it was the best match I’d been to all season,” McInally told The Daily Record. “The reason for that is the way Mark’s team plays.

“I can switch football off the telly now, especially Premier League games, when I think of what some people are earning.

“Some of it is rotten and there’s just no entertainment value. Then I watch Rangers and Mark should be commended for the way his team play.

“They’re a joy to watch and they play with a big risk factor. To watch Rangers now – sadly for a Celtic fan like myself – it has been terrific.”

Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship title this season and defeated Peterhead 4-0 in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Sunday afternoon.

The Gers, who play attacking football and are fun to watch, will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow this weekend.

Warburton’s side play good football, and the Ibrox faithful have been entertained throughout the campaign.

It will be interesting to see if the Rangers boss changes his style next season when they play in the Scottish Premiership.
