Steven Davis believes suggestions over the 'fragility' of the Rangers squad are premature after they dropped points in the title race at the weekend.

A slip-up against Ross County saw Celtic maintain their four-point gap at the top of the Premiership table.

Rangers can close that down to a single point this evening with a victory over Dundee at Dens Park.

And Davis, a fans' favourite at Ibrox during his time as a player and stand-in head coach, believes the mentality of the dressing room is fine, as Philippe Clement's side go in chase of the league title.

He said: "For me, we didn't win enough trophies in my second spell at the club and we had the quality there to do it. We fell short at times and those questions are always going to be asked until you get the success that you want.

"It's a little bit early to be saying about fragility and everything. It's very easy to throw those accusations at the players and the club but they are still in a strong position, and can go on to have a really fantastic season. Let's judge that at the end of the season because they have shown a lot of character to get back into the title race from where they were at."

He continued:ย "There is a really good mentality from inside the group. There has been a lot of questions asked over a number of players who have been at the club for a long time.

"Until you have that success on a regular basis there is always going to be questions. That comes with playing for a club of this stature. You have to embrace that and enjoy it or you won't be at he club for very long."
