Craig Mather: Confident Rangers will soon be challenging with the top clubs in S

The Ibrox team won the Third Division at the first attempt last term, and hope to follow in the footsteps of Gretna by securing two more lower division titles on the way to the top flight.

Rangers have been busy strengthening their squad for the step-up to Division Two, and Mather is confident the club is on solid footing.

"As far as I'm concerned you get one opportunity to make change when you go through a situation like Rangers have," Mather said.

"We need to create a solid platform from which we can build. And that's not just on the park, that's off the park as well.

"So the changes we made with regard to the playing side I believe will help improve the squad and drive the squad forward.

"I'm under no illusions that when we get back to the pinnacle of Scottish football we have to build to compete, and not compete mid-table.

"This is Rangers. This is an institution and we have to build to compete at the top, not at the middle."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
