Centre-back Hill and right-back Hodson were left out at Fir Park but enjoyed comfortable eveings at Ibrox last night, and the Rangers boss was pleased with his summer signings.

“It’s good to get the new boys in too”, Warburton told Rangers TV. "Clint Hill was solid and Lee Hodson came in and did very, very well and all over the park there were some very pleasing performances."
