Troubled Mark Warburton is toiling to come to terms with his demolition derby hammering from Celtic.

The former city trader likes to watch three re-runs of every match that his team plays regardless of the result.

Straight after Celtic’s victory Warbo claimed that there was no gulf between the teams, 48 hours later he told the Ibrox club’s in house television service that it ‘wasn’t a 5-1 game’.

Today a new theme emerged with the former Brentford boss saying: “We weren’t Rangers against Celtic in terms of being on the front foot and being positive, so that’s what we have to show at Ibrox on Saturday (against Ross County), and again on Tuesday in the quarter final (against Queen of the South).

We always talk about performance being absolutely key, and the result follows. If you get the performance right – if you play together, work together and stay together in everything you do, move the ball quickly, play one or two touch stuff and penetrate, then the result naturally follows.

If we do what we do well, the result always follows. That’s what we have to focus on – we have to focus on giving our supporters a good performance and one that they enjoy. They enjoy the tempo of our play, the desire of our play, the rotation and movement of our players within the system, and if we do that, then we will be alright.”

Among Warbo’s other bizarre comments since Saturday he claimed that some of the coverage from Scottish newspapers of the defeat was poisonous!
