Warburton admits to signing struggles

Mark Warburton has admitted it is taking time for some of his summer signings to settle at Rangers but is confident they will adapt.

The Light Blues brought in 11 new faces during the last transfer window in the hope of being competitive on their return to the Scottish Premiership, with mixed results.

Warburton's men have won three of their eight matches so far this season, a run of fixtures which also saw them soundly beaten 5-1 by Old Firm rivals Celtic.

The former Brentford boss feels the mixed bag of results is down to the new arrivals settling in, revealing that the move to Glasgow has been a big culture shock for some players.

"I’ve mentioned Clint Hill, the level he has played at and the number of games he has played, yet he is still shocked by the media interest, speculation and comments," said Warburton.

"It does take some getting used to, so I think we need to give the boys as much space as possible.

"But we are getting there. We are only eight games in, so hopefully as we go forward now we make real progress."
