I’ll be judged on winning trophies, says Warburton

Rangers boss Mark Warburton says he’ll only be judged on the success of his appointment when he wins something.

The former Brentford boss has made an impressive start to life at the club, steering the Light Blues to 10 straight victories.

But it has been the eye-catching performances, free-flowing football and glut of goals which have won the manager and the team plaudits.

Warburton though is refusing to get carried away with the start and insists it will only be once they have silverware in the cabinet that they will be properly judged.

“I think we have to win something obviously that’s important. But we’re being judged all the time in the role you play here and how you deal with it, changes we make and what philosophy we can put into place.

“There’s many things we are judged on: How we handle the media is important but I think we have to obviously win something and move the club forward.

“We’ve got to win the Championship first then mount a strong challenge to go as high as we possibly can.

“The targets are clear, the structures need to be right, the squad strength and all aspects of the football department need to be right so we can mount a strong challenge.”

Rangers are looking for their seventh consecutive league win on Saturday against Dumbarton and Warburton admits he hasn’t seen much of his opponents.

“What’s difficult in Scotland in the Championship is sometimes the lack of quality footage and that’s a big difference for us,” he said.

“And I think that’s something we have to look at going forward to have more access to better quality footage.

“They are at home, they are scrapping, they’re in a difficult position at the moment but there are no easy games.

“I went there in August to watch our under 20s play and turned around and seen Walter Smith with a jacket, scarf and gloves in August so I knew there was an issue and it was cold by the way!

“It’s another challenge for us it’s a different type of ground.”
