Mark Warburton matches record of Rangers legend after just eight games in charge

first_img1 Rangers beat Queen of the South 5-1 Rangers moved two points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship thanks to a 5-1 thrashing of Queen of the South at Palmerston.Andy Halliday, Jason Holt and Barrie McKay scored in addition to a brace of Martyn Waghorn penalties and, though Aidan Smith scored for the hosts on 75 minutes, the Gers cruised to a fourth win from four league games this season.Going in to the match, Queens also boasted a 100 per cent record, but there was no repeat of the crushing defeats suffered by Rangers in Dumfries on their two visits in the previous campaign.The 5-1 scoreline also means Mark Warburton has become the first Rangers manager since Bill Struth in 1920 to win his first eight games in charge in all competitions, albeit at a lower level.Struth was in charge at Ibrox between 1920 and 1954 and led Rangers to a remarkable 18 league titles, including the club’s first ever league and cup double and treble.Warburton will do well to achieve a fraction of his illustrious predecessor’s success and the Ibrox faithful will settle for promotion this season.last_img
