Rangers boss Mark Warburton believes that if his side can get on the pitch and perform as they did against Celtic in the Scottish Cup last season, there is no reason why they can't win.

The Scottish top tier will witness the resumption of the Old Firm derby this weekend when Warburton's team lock horn against Brendan Rodgers' Celtic.

The last time the two sides met back in April at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup semi-final the match ended in a win for the 53-year-old manager's team, who bossed the 120 minutes and won the match 5-4 on penalties.

Reflecting on that particular result, the Rangers boss said that his team will go into tomorrow's match with a similar outlook. The team, according to Warburton, have heard all from the ex-players and the managers and now they are waiting to respond to them on the pitch.

"We're just going to play our game. If you read the bookies odds and believe them there's not much point turning up. We're relishing it", Warburton said at his pre-match press conference.  


"Like last time, I've read all the comments from ex-players and managers. If we go in there and do what we do well, we'll be fine.

"I will never ever doubt the quality and the ability of our group of players.

"We had no doubts we could win the semi-final and we did it. We go into this weekend just the same."

Rangers have had a slower start to the league season than Celtic though, winning just two of their four games, while the Bhoys have won three from three.
