MARK Warburton says Rangers could have won two or three games of football with the amount of chances they created against Ross County.

The Gers played out a stalemate with the Staggies at Ibrox despite creating a hatful of opportunities in front of goal.

Warburton says he took his team back to basics after last weekend’s Old Firm loss and thought his side delivered their best performance of the season so far.

The manager said:

“It doesn’t feel like a loss at all, it feels like we should have taken three points because we had enough chances there to win two or three games of football.

“That was the best performance of the season so far, we had good energy, good tempo, good intensity and second half was wave after wave.

“I am pleased with that and pleased with many aspects of our performance but of course we’re never pleased about dropping two points at home.

“I thought today was far better, there was a far better tempo to it, we were back to basics and I thought we delivered a good performance without getting the rewards.

“It hit the keeper on all parts of his body and it hit the bar too, there were a lot of chances created, we got bodies in the box and kept our shape quite well.

“I thought we won first balls in the second half against an experienced forward line they had and Clint and Danny stood up and did very well.

“There was a good energy and we had more than enough chances and while we’re never happy about dropping points we will take that performance every week.”

After defeat last weekend the Gers gaffer had been hopeful of three points but ultimately had to be satisfied with the Light Blues display.

He had worked hard with the team on the training field all week and believed it showed.

Warburton continued:

“We spoke to the boys and I always refer to the money markets, if you drop a load of money you don’t get it back the following day, you chip away at your basics and get your 10s and your 20s back and you build.

“That was what we wanted to do today, we wanted to come out, because we were disappointed last week, and as a group of players and staff we know we wanted to deliver a performance.

“It was about going back to basics and it was about pressing, creating chances and getting shots and we did that.”
