And Warburton said: “They need to demand from each other every day in training. We’ve got to have that demand and we’ve got to make sure that the intensity is right every day. If we get that right then we will be okay.

“As a group we’ve spoken about that already, it’s about us demanding day in and day out throughout the season.”

Rangers are expected to give Celtic a challenge for the Scottish Premiership title next term.
