Rangers striker Libor Sionko has backed under-fire boss Paul Le Guen.
The Gers slipped to defeat at Falkirk on Sunday - another disappointing result in The SPL which sees the club trail leaders Celtic by 16 points.
Despite notable success in the Uefa Cup, the Ibrox club's domestic struggles have led to some doubting Le Guen.
But Sionko remains an ardent admirer of the Frenchman.
"Paul Le Guen came here with many achievements and fame from his days in charge of Lyon," said Sionko.
"He is a European-type coach who has thoroughly changed the team's style of play.
"With such big changes it will take time to bear fruit, but I have no doubt that he is preparing the team for success."
Meanwhile, Ian Murray has targeted a return to the Rangers first team after making a recovery from the virus which has dogged his season.
Murray was diagnosed with reactive arthritis after returning from the club's pre-season trip to South Africa.
Murray turned out for The Gers' second string against Dunfermline last week, and believes the signs are positive for a return before Christmas.
"It obviously depends on how the rest of the boys get on in the next few games," he said.
"But to be considered for selection before Christmas would be good for me.
"To get back before Christmas would be a bonus, but I'll be prepared for either side of Christmas."
