MARK WARBURTON says that the tone of today’s excellent performance was set right from the very first minute with Harry Forrester’s goal.

The English winger scored his third goal in three games in today’s dominant win over Premiership side Dundee in the Scottish Cup quarter final at Ibrox.

Further goals by Jason Holt, Andy Halliday and then Lee Wallace followed for the Gers and it could have been more for the Light Blues who were in complete control throughout the match.

Speaking to RangersTV after the match, the Gers boss praised the way his side took the game to a good Dundee side early in the game.

He said: “The tone was really set from the first minute by Harry Forrester and that was important for us.

“We knew the threat that they would pose to us, there’s no doubt about that because they are a quality side.”

Forrester’s goal was the quickest Warburton’s side have bagged this season and it was an excellent way to start the match and the intensity of the performance didn’t drop from that minute to the last.

Warburton continued: “We wanted to make sure that we maintained our own tempo during the match and worked at our intensity.

“From the first whistle we worked hard and got the ball and it was tremendous work from Forrester, but all round today and over there were great performances.”
