MARK WARBURTON was delighted for a magnificent Rangers support after his side secured a second title in the space of just six days.
A 4-0 win over Peterhead saw the Light Blues clinch the Petrofac Training Cup in front of 45,000 Rangers fans at Hampden.
After lifting the trophy Warburton admits focus now turns to next Sunday’s return to the national stadium but hopes supporters enjoy the on field success.
He said: “For me, to look around at the start of the game and just now it is truly outstanding. It really is a magnificent sight.
“The support today was superb and the players delivered a performance again so I’m delighted.
“It’s great to get the silverware and share it with the fans then we’ll focus on next week.
“It’s been a good day and after Tuesday night it’s another trophy which is great for us and now we gear towards next week.
“It’s another step for us and another education for us. If we can learn from every game we play in, these types of games are really important for that.”
Despite the comfortable scoreline it was late in the game that Rangers added gloss to that outcome and Warburton admits it was challenging at times.
He added: “The surface was difficult and we didn’t really get the ball moving in the first 15 minutes but then we were good, we got the own goal and a great strike from Tav for a magnificent second goal.
“We certainly dominated possession and it was a well deserved victory I felt.
“We’ve been fit all season and finished games strongly so that’s credit to the players’ hard work and the staff that work with them.”
