Rangers defender Danny Wilson claims it is easy to stay grounded following their 6-2 opening win over Hibernian - because there is so much room for improvement.

Mark Warburton kick-started his Ibrox reign when his team swept their Ladbrokes Championship title rivals aside in the Petrofac Training Cup last Saturday, but his message that Rangers must improve has been heeded by the players.

The fans might be getting carried away, but Wilson knows they could undo the second half's work at Easter Road if they fail to perform against Peterhead in the League Cup first round at Ibrox tomorrow.

"The performance can be better," Wilson said.

"We weren't great in the first half. The scoreline looked as if we dominated from start to finish and that wasn't the case. We know we can improve on our first-half performance. It was great to get the win but we know there is a long way to go.

"There's no point winning last week and putting on a bad performance this week.

"In the first half, our work without the ball wasn't what it should have been.

"But we seemed to get things right in the second half. Hopefully on Sunday we can start a lot better."
