Rangers manager Mark Warburton is relishing the prospect of utilising his full squad in the upcoming week and making changes to his side’s formations.

Following a drubbing at Celtic on Saturday, Rangers will be looking to bounce back with a win against Ross County this weekend at Ibrox, but Warburton has a few selection headaches ahead of the game.

Rangers will take on Queen of the South next Tuesday night with a place in the Scottish League Cup semi-finals at stake, and the manager admits that he is pondering over his selection for both the league and the cup encounter.

He feels that he can’t make too many changes as that could disrupt the rhythm of the team, but he is keen to utilise his squad, and has insisted that Tuesday night’s game is as important as the league encounter on Saturday.

Warburton told Rangers TV: “You are caught between a rock and a hard place sometimes – but it’s a positive place to be.  


“You can talk about utilising the squad and making a load of changes, or you can say new players need time to bed in.

“It’s a balance between the two, and the Tuesday game is a good one for us. I

"t’s a League Cup quarter-final we want to of course win, but it is a chance between those two games to rotate the personnel and maybe tweak the formation slightly within that, so we will have a look and see how that goes.”

Two wins on the trot in the next week could lift some of the doom and gloom that is surrounding Rangers following their humiliating defeat in the Old Firm derby.
