Rangers fans react to Mark Warburton’s controversial comments

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton has incurred the wrath of many Gers fans after his recent comments about the ambitions to land a league title at the first time of asking after returning to the Scottish top flight.

In a big interview with The Evening Times, Warburton has revealed he got the shock of his life when he walked out at Ibrox on the first day of the 2016/17 season to see a sign declaring ‘Going For 55’.

“Talk about the right message to supporters but one which lights a blue touch paper,” he said. “It should’ve been ‘Rangers are Back’ or ‘Welcome Back’ or ‘Bluenoses are Back’. Don’t put ‘Going for 55’. We still would have sold season tickets.”

Unsurprisingly, many Rangers have taken issue with his comments.

After a bright start to his time at Ibrox, Warburton left the club in acrimonious circumstances in February 2017. He has been out of work since being sacked by Nottingham Forest in December last year.
