Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told the club’s official website he is delighted with the work put in during their 10-day trip to the USA.

23 member of the Rangers squad headed out for the pre-season trip, which has seen them taking part in three sessions per day for the duration of their stay.

The move was primarily a fitness-based one, as the squad looks to get into shape ahead of the new season. The upcoming League Cup tie against Motherwell this weekend only served to accelerate the need to get up to scratch.

And offering his assessment of the trip, Warburton says he is delighted with what he is seen in the last week and a half.

“I am delighted with how the ten days went,” he told rangers.co.uk. “You can see the improvements and how well they have done in tough, gruelling conditions across the last 10 days and the game was a culmination of their efforts.”

It now remains to be seen whether the gruelling regime that Warburton has put his men through has had the desired effect.

There is no denying that the cup clash against Motherwell is coming earlier than he would like and he has had to adapt his plans accordingly.

It could, however, provide him with the perfect opportunity to assess how his Rangers squad are developing and improve accordingly.
