Rangers picked up their first win of the Scottish Premiership campaign this afternoon as the Glasgow side defeated Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park.

Goals from Harry Forrester and Kenny Miller looked to have bagged Rangers a comfortable win as they cruised through the opening 40 minutes.

But Rangers were made to sweat after a poor second half, which came after Mark O’Hara had pulled one back for Dundee just before half-time.

The second half performance did not impress Rangers boss Mark Warburton. He spoke to the club’s official YouTube channel after the game and spoke of a dressing room debate between the Rangers players:

“We wanted to step up in the second-half and we didn’t we were a little bit hesitant.

“Although we created chances it wasn’t as fluid as the first-half – hence the debate we just had in the changing room there.

“Yeah absolutely (I welcome choice words in the dressing room). It’s how we speak to each other. We’re winners, the boys in there want to win, and it’s important that we learn from it.”

The Ibrox faithful expect a lot from Rangers this season and there is no doubt that they have not quite lived up to their potential just yet in the top-flight of Scottish football.

Rangers also have plenty of big characters in that dressing room and there will be no quarter given should any of them feel the performances are not up to scratch.

Rangers and Warburton will be pleased to have picked up their first win of the campaign – but better performances are still needed.
