MARK WARBURTON was delighted with today’s win at Ibrox which was played on very tough conditions as the snow fell for nintey minutes.
Danny Wilson opened the scoring with his first goal since returning to the club, before Martyn Waghorn bagged a brace and Kenny Miller made it four for the Gers.
Livingston pulled a goal back in the second half through substitute Liam Buchanan, but by that time the game had already looked wrapped up for the Light Blues.
Speaking after the match, Warburton said: “We won the match four one and it was a superb first half performance. We were strong, we moved the ball with good quality and we could have had more goals.
“We were very happy at half time but obviously the weather played a part. We were a little bit lacklustre in the second half and it was difficult in the conditions.
“Livingston made it difficult for us and played well.”
The Gers were four up in the first half yet couldn’t add to their tally in the second 45 minutes despite continuing to create chances.
Warburton was pleased with the performance overall, but felt that the team could have done more in the second period.
He said: “We were really pleased with the football in the first half. We came out hard and fast and thoroughly deserved the lead at half time.
“It was a good performance for us and we created a lot of chances.
“The second half we created lots of chances but we weren’t clinical enough and we didn’t get the rewards in front of goal in the final third.
“We were maybe a little bit laboured in front of goal and with the final pass.”
