Rangers drew 1-1 away at Ross County this afternoon,

Rangers' up-and-down campaign continues after they could only draw 1-1 away at the Scottish Premiership's bottom club, Ross County.

After a win for Aberdeen and a draw for Hearts over the weekend, Rangers had lost second place heading into today's game, but knew a win would take them back up to second, only behind Celtic.


It all started so well for Rangers, as Clint Hill headed Mark Warburton's men in front after just eight minutes, with the veteran defender scoring his first goal for the club.

However, Ross County – who sit bottom of the Scottish Premiership and had conceded eight goals in the two games prior to facing Rangers – hit back when defender Andrew Davies equalised for Jim McIntyre's men.

Warburton's men, as ever, dominated possession with 55% of the ball, but could only muster four shots on goal as they again failed to turn possession into goals.

Rangers now lie third in the Scottish Premiership, 11 points behind leaders Celtic after playing a game more, and the pressure is mounting on manager Warburton.

The former Brentford boss impressed last season by taking Rangers to promotion back to the top flight, but with some patchy results – the Gers have now failed to beat Ross County twice, as well as Kilmarnock and St. Johnstone – some fans want Warburton gone.

Fans took to Twitter after the final whistle on Sunday to suggest that Rangers are going backwards under Warburton, and unless he changes something, he won't be the club's manager next season.

Others think Warburton should go now after a disappointing performance, with one fan even suggesting that he would rather keep Joey Barton and let Warburton go, with Barton an outcast under Warburton following a recent row.

A popular name among fans to replace Warburton should he go is Frank de Boer, given that the Dutchman is out of work having been sacked by Inter Milan last week. During his playing career, De Boer made 17 appearances for Rangers and has impressed as a manager, winning four Eredivisie titles in a row with Ajax – but whether he would be willing to drop down to Rangers is another matter, and he'd certainly be an ambitious target for the Gers if Warburton ends up leaving the club, which doesn't look to be immediate despite some shaky performances this season.
