DAVID WEIR, the Rangers assistant manager, is confident his squad won’t lose their momentum in the Championship after seeing the trip to Raith Rovers postponed last weekend. The Stark’s Park clash was one of a host of fixtures across the country to succumb to the storms that swept Scotland, with torrential rain and driving wind leaving pitches unplayable and roads blocked.

Instead of looking to make it three wins in a week after 4-0 successes over St Mirren and Dumbarton, Weir and boss Mark Warburton put their squad through a training session at their Murray Park base on Saturday. The visit of Morton this weekend gives Rangers another chance to maintain their lead at the top of the table and Weir is eager to get back down to business.

“Fortunately we were able to train so we did that and tried to make the most of it, we would have much rather had a game but training was second best,” he said. “We still got some work in and got something out of the day, at least we hadn’t got to the stadium and then found out the game was off and then we’d have had to travel all the way back.

“We managed to give the boys Sunday and Monday off which was good and they deserved that having had a couple of games in the previous week. It’s good for them to recharge their batteries and they came back in on Tuesday and were really fresh and bright. Saturday’s training session we used to replicate the game and that means that this week can basically stay the same.”

Having opened up a three point gap over Hibernian with victory over Dumbarton last Tuesday evening, Rangers faced the prospect of seeing their advantage reduced once again as Alan Stubbs’ side prepared to face Morton last weekend. The Cappielow fixture was set to go ahead after a morning pitch inspection but police were forced to call the game off due to flooding in Greenock.

“I don’t think we really care too much about anyone else,” Weir told RangersTV. “We always try and focus on ourselves and focus on what we can control. A lot of teams speak about us and talk about us. We would rather concentrate on what we are doing rather than what anyone else is doing."
