Rangers boss Mark Warburton has explained that his side will not travel to Falkirk tonight with revenge on their minds.

The Gers, who are currently 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship with a game in hand, lost 2-1 in their previous visit to the Falkirk Community Stadium in December.

After John Baird’s third minute penalty gave Falkirk the lead, Barrie McKay equalised for Rangers 12 minutes later; but Will Vaulks' goal in the second half handed the Ibrox outfit their second league loss of the season.

However, Warburton, who stated that Rangers have “no score to settle” with Falkirk, insisted that the Gers are relishing the prospect of facing the Bairns in their own backyard.

“There’s no score to settle”, he said in pre-match press conference yesterday.


“We’re conscious that we went there and dominated proceedings, it was a very strange penalty decision to give inside the first couple of minutes which we dealt with, but we came away with no points.

“So there’s no score to settle, it’s about us going there on Friday night well prepared and in a good vein of form and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”

Since the loss at Falkirk, Warburton’s team have managed to win 13 of their last 15 outings in all competitions, while drawing two.

Rangers have managed to defeat Falkirk twice at Ibrox this season; a 3-1 victory in October was followed by a 1-0 victory in January.
