Scott Nisbet has admitted that he is happy to see how Rangers boss Mark Warburton has approached this summer's transfer window because it has shown that the club have clearly learned their lesson from previous mistakes, the Evening Times reports.

Despite preparing for their first season back in the Scottish Premiership, the Light Blues have been somewhat frugal with their business, having signed the likes of Joey Barton, Josh Windass and Jordan Rossiter following the expiration of their respective contracts with their previous clubs.

And former Rangers defender Nisbet is pleased to see that spending-wise, the club have been much less reckless in the market than they were in previous years as that strategy will prevent the kind of fall from grace that saw them demoted to the bottom tier four years ago.

"Too often in the past Rangers bought players for millions of pounds who only played 10 or 15 games and then left having pocketed a lot of money. Players were coming to Rangers for a quick pay day," he told the Evening Times.

"There was crazy money getting splashed around. At the end of the day, that's what cost Rangers and led to all their financial troubles. They have to take a different approach now and are doing so."

Though the fact that the Gers have signed several players following the end of their previous contracts would suggest that they are adopting a cautious strategy, the calibre of player they have been able to attract suggests that they have actually done several pieces of incredibly smart business.

They have added the kind of depth to their squad that may allow them to challenge near the summit without parting with large amounts of money it seems, which arguably confirms that they are determined to avoid any of the mistakes that led to their rapid plight and long journey back.
