WES Foderingham believes communication can help Rangers climb the league this season.

After his manager admitted to a healthy debate following a stuttering second-half display against Dundee, the goalkeeper said it is those talks which will propel Rangers.

The 25-year-old said the 2-1 victory was a relief after an opening day draw to Hamilton and has tipped the Light Blues to push on.

Foderingham said: “Last season we were probably guilty of starting slowly away from home whereas this time around we started very sharp and unfortunately we couldn’t continue that.

“The manager has said his piece on it and we are all in agreement, I think we will definitely go into the next game trying to maintain it for the whole 90 minutes.

“There is always a debate afterwards, we always sit down as a squad after games and analyse it and the manager has always said we will be better for communication.

“That is where we will be better than anyone else because that part of our armour is very good and we are able to be very open and honest with each other and say what we feel.”

Foderingham revealed it was more relief than celebration when the Gers secured their first win back in the Premiership.

And the stopper thinks it is a positive that Warburton’s side could still grind out a win, which sent them to the top of the Premiership, despite underperforming at times.

The goalkeeper said: “There is a mixed feeling after the weekend, the second-half was disappointing but I think it is good that we can not play our best and still grind out wins.

“That is important because you’re not going to play your best every week so it’s important to be able to win when you’re not at your best if you’re going to win titles.

“It was a relief at the end, having put ourselves under a bit of pressure, drawing at home against Hamilton, instantly it becomes a must win game.

“I think it is a little bit of a disaster if you go into the season and you have drawn your first two games, it was important to get that win on the board.

“It’s nice to see our name up there at the top of the table, back where we belong, as everyone would say.

“It is pleasing and it is a decent start, we just need to maintain that right.”
