Walter Smith suggests what Rangers will be particularly disappointed with this season

Glasgow Rangers have made an unspectacular start to life back in the Scottish Premiership.

Walter Smith has suggested that while Rangers should not be too despondent about how they have fared since their return to the Scottish Premiership, they do have one reason to be particularly disappointed, the Evening Times reports.

Mark Warburton's men are currently third in the table, but have already fallen well behind leaders Celtic - the gap is 11 points, and the Hoops have a game in hand to potentially extend that advantage further - and have generally struggled to capture the imagination in the way that they did last season.

And while Smith insisted that the title was always going to be beyond them this term, he suggested that their form at Ibrox is something that Warburton will want to address.

"I think they'll be disappointed with the number of draws that they've had at home especially. If they had won more of those it would have lifted them up a bit and put them into second position," he said, as reported by the Evening Times.

"But I thought there was always going to be a settling-in period and that it wouldn't be as easy as a number of people had maybe thought."

The Light Blues have drawn three games at home in the league this season, and they will surely be disappointed with that fact as those games arguably pitted them against sides that, on paper, they should have beaten.

Both Hamilton and Ross County find themselves in the bottom four in the table, while the latter are at the bottom of the division currently.

And Rangers will be hoping that they prove to be a lot more ruthless in their next game, which sees them go up against Dundee in front of their own fans on Saturday.
