Mark Warburton praised both his goalscorer and goalkeeper, after Rangers claimed an 11th straight victory in the Scottish Championship with a 1-0 victory over St Mirren.

The Rangers manager accepted that Sunday's narrow victory was a hard fought affair, with Jason Holt's 25th minute strike sealing the victory.

Warburton told the Ibrox club's website: "We weren't at our best today by a long way and the players know that - they are very honest.

It was a big three points, no doubt about that.

"But we still created a lot of chances in the first half - and could have been out of sight - and it was a big three points no doubt about that.

"St Mirren made it difficult, they were physical. But we showed our supporters our resilience."

"Wes (Foderingham) made some great saves. His distribution is outstanding and he was brave. He dominates his box and made two or three top-class saves."

After maintaining their 100% record in the Championship, next up is second placed Hibs who welcome the Gers to Easter Road next Sunday, trailing the leaders by eight points.
