AFTER calling an inquest after his side’s 3-0 win over Livingston Mark Warburton wants to reach out to fans to and ask them not to expect thrillers every week.

Rangers have recorded three five goal wins in the Championship this season but fan pressure is something the manager has spoken to his team about. 

He says what he is trying to achieve is more than just goals and he hopes the supporters will stick with his team when the goals aren’t flowing in. 

Warburton said: “We spoke about the fans and sometimes 1-0 is seen as a poor victory so we’re aware of that threat and we have talked about it this week. 

“We have to work and communicate with the crowd about what we’re trying to achieve and what we are looking to do. 

“What represents the performance isn’t just the goals, it is how we move the ball, how we rotate in midfield, how we keep our shape, how we press them and where we press them. 

“There are many things that make a good performance and hopefully we can relay that to the crowd about what we’re trying to do.”

Rangers full-backs have netted 10 goals between them so far this season, the latest a thunderbolt from Lee Wallace to open the scoring against the Lions. 

That was added to by Martyn Waghorn’s ninth of the season, who also had a couple of shouts for a penalty turned away and a late strike from Nicky Law. 

Warburton remarked: “It was a tremendous strike from Lee; I think he is worried about Tav getting away from him in the goal scoring stakes!

“They are two full-backs who are keen to get forward, keen to score and I am delighted for him, the crowd recognised him before the game too. 

“Waggy is a quality player and he will get better and better, he just needs to have a run of games to get fitness and get confidence, which we spoke about when he arrived. 

“He gave the ball away which he nearly got punished from but then it was a great reaction for his goal. 

“That is what Martyn Waghorn is all about – his work rate, his application and his desire to do well for the club is unquestionable. 

“I had a few issues on the decisions front, I think there were a number of areas but that is another discussion and I better be quiet on that one.”
