Lee Wallace believes 'contentment' within the Rangers squad has helped the team start the new league season in style with five straight wins.

The Ibrox club are top of the Scottish Championship with a goal-difference of plus 16, the latest victory being a 5-0 thrashing of Raith Rovers on Saturday.

It was their ninth consecutive win in all competitions under new manager Mark Warburton and skipper Wallace said: "We are enjoying coming into work every day and taking to the field every Saturday.

"So if we can maintain top levels and be the best as we can be as individuals, as a consequence, we are going to be really hard to stop.

"If we keep that belief, keep that momentum, we are going to have an enjoyable season.

"We aim to send the fans happy every week and hopefully come the end of the season we can reward them with some silverware but until then we will keep working hard and keep going in the right direction.

"The focus is on Livingston next week. We will rest well and the preparations will start for that on Monday.

"We have to maintain top levels as individuals and as a team. We did that against Raith Rovers and that was the most pleasing aspect.

"Saturday was more of an accomplished professional performance and it was an enjoyable one because of that.

"We have managed to build that early momentum which is obviously breeding great confidence throughout the group.

"Now we are really looking forward to every game."
