BY DARREN JOHNSTONE – Capital City Press
Rangers captain Lee Wallace insists the sky’s the limit for Mark Warburton’s side after they chalked up a sixth straight win of the campaign against Hibs on Sunday.
Wallace was part of a Rangers team that maintained their flawless start to the league with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Leith outfit, James Tavernier grabbing the only goal of the game with a wonderful free-kick.
The Ibrox side are desperate to clinch the Championship title and the only automatic promotion place after being defeated in last term’s play-off final by Motherwell.
And speaking ahead of tomorrow’s League Cup trip to Airdrie, left-back Wallace insists anything is possible this season.
He said: “We can go wherever we want to go this season as a team, individually we’re going to get better and if we keep going out every match day being the best we can be, we’ll go on and have a right successful season.
“We are ready for anything; we are ready for any opponent, any system or any atmosphere and any environment, it’s all about us and it’s on to Wednesday now.”
New manager Warburton has overseen a huge transformation on the pitch and Wallace – a survivor of the side that finished third last term – is loving playing under the Englishman.
He added: “It’s great, it’s not just the starting eleven that go out there but the whole squad are made to feel really important and are made to feel a great deal of responsibility when you take to an atmosphere like that in front of a tremendous crowd that were again first class.”
Warburton insisted that Rangers were ‘sloppy’ at times during the Hibs victory and Wallace admits it was not a vintage performance.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he added: “I felt in the first half with the way Hibs tried to slow our intensity down we dropped to their level, so to speak, and they were on top for spells and probably could have scored.
“We upped it and we started the second half better, we got back to our intensity and in the end I think we were deserved winners.”
