MARK Warburton says Rangers can only answer questions over their Hearts display when they take to the Ibrox turf this weekend.

Warburton said the Light Blues delivered a display in the capital which wasn’t up to the standards he expects.

The Rangers squad held a lengthy analysis meeting after training on Thursday and the boss now thinks Saturday’s clash with Aberdeen proves the perfect opportunity to right some wrongs.

Warburton said: “Clint Hill just said in our meeting that the best way now is on the pitch, he is dead right, he is an experienced pro and he knows the best answers are out there on the pitch.

“The opportunity we have got is a good game on Saturday at a packed Ibrox; we have the chance now to show what we are about.

“We lost a game of football so we have to learn from it, you can’t sit there and just move on regardless because we were disappointed in our performance last night and we lost three valuable points. What can we do better?

“Win, lose or draw we must learn and we have to get better every time.

“We talk as a group and we didn’t do what we do well, we didn’t get on the ball, we didn’t get started and we knew Hearts would press.

“We felt beforehand that that would be the tactics and they did it well, they were brave and they left three at the back and dropped one in so we knew what they were doing.

“We had to be braver and we had to find solutions to get out and yes the pitch was a little bit difficult but we are better than that.”

Hearts 2-0 win at Tynecastle meant they jumped Rangers into second spot in the Premiership but Warburton says he is more concerned about consistency.

He said: “It is three points and the fact is it is a tough division and points don’t come easy so yes you might beat two teams around you but if you lose an extra four games against teams lower than you it is irrelevant.

“The fact is every week, one at a time, you have to claim your points and dropping points hurts, especially when you are at Rangers.

“There is no lack of belief, we won’t lose the belief, we are asking players to be brave and we are asking players to maybe try things they are not used to but the fact is they wouldn’t come here if they weren’t good enough to do it.

“Last night there is no excuse for; there is no papering over the cracks because as a group we weren’t good enough.”
