Rangers boss Mark Warburton has lauded his team for their display against Livingston in last night’s Scottish Challenge Cup win.

The Scottish giants were up against Livingston in a quarter-final fixture in the Challenge Cup and prevailed 1-0 over their rivals courtesy of a Nicky Clark strike in the 75th minute of the game that sealed their passage into the semi-finals.

Warburton, who took charge of the Gers in the summer and has guided his side to ten wins out of ten in the Championship, said that he is pleased with the perseverance displayed by his side in a game in which patience was called for.

“We kept at the task, they were tough to break down and we had to be patient and we kept moving the football and got in good areas”, the former Brentford boss was quoted as saying by his club’s site.

“We were not quite as clinical as we needed to be at times, but we got the result and we’re into the semi-final."


The Englishman hopes that the Ibrox faithful saw the character and spirit of their players in the game.

“I hope the fans saw the character because it was a show in spirit for everyone, not just the players, but the fans as well.

“You heard the fans reaction and the supporters were really strong, but we have to stick with the game plan and the more we can learn to break teams down the better we will be.”

Rangers will be up against St Mirren in their next Championship fixture on Sunday and will be eager to stretch their winning run to 11 games.
