Video: Ex-Rangers Boss Mark Warburton Admits ‘Going For 55’ Made His Heart Sink

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton has admitted his heart sank when he saw the club’s fans display their ‘Going For 55’ tifo on the opening day of the 2016/17 Premiership campaign.

Warburton and assistant Davie Weir had managed to guide the Gers back to the top-flight after several seasons in the lower leagues, following the Ibrox club’s liquidation in 2012, and they started their season with a 1-1 draw at home to Hamilton Accies.

Just before kick-off, fans unveiled their card display referencing their desire to add to the Gers’ 54 titles and, privately, Warburton was far from happy with it:

As it turned out, Warburton was right to be concerned, as Rangers finished the season in third place, behind Celtic and Aberdeen – a whopping 39 points off the summit.

What do you think of Warburton’s comments? Was he right to be so cautious in his ambitions, or should he have been more positive about their chances of winning the title?

Let us know in the comments section below…
