Rangers boss Mark Warburton has asked his side to be ready for setbacks in spite of the good shape and high confidence they are in at present.

The Gers have had a good start to their domestic campaign, managing to accumulate 37 points from a possible 42 in the 14 league matches so far.

The overall team spirit is good at present, Warburton says, and the 53-year-old insists that there are better things to come in the future as well.

However, he is also cautious about setbacks and insists that his side have to prepare themselves for that so that when those situations arise, they are ready to handle them and can stage a fightback in order to continue with their goal of returning back to the top flight in the Scottish league.

Speaking at the club's Annual General Meeting the manager declared: "We have had a good start and are proceeding well.


"We have secured 37 points from a possible 42 and have a goal difference of +31. The team is in good shape and confidence is high, but there will of course be setbacks; it is in truth the only way we learn.

"However, this club is synonymous with victory and therefore lessons must indeed be learned and everything we do as a football department must be designed to achieve success for Rangers."

Rangers' lead at the top of the Championship table has been curtailed of late by Hibernian, with the Gers only managing to hold on to their top spot via a superior goal difference.
