Rangers manager Ally McCoist believes his side have now adjusted to life in the Irn-Bru Third Division after claiming a hard-fought 4-2 victory at Montrose.
The leaders claimed their sixth consecutive league win despite going behind in the 16th minute, with a last-gasp goal from Robbie Crawford finally finishing off the plucky hosts.
McCoist said: "I've got to say I'm delighted with the three points. But our defending today, it has been good recently, but we slipped back today. We looked as if we were all over the place at times.
"That said, we got away with it because we took our chances in the second half.
"We are still probably not scoring as many goals from chances created as I would like to see.
"But it's probably a game we wouldn't have won three weeks into the season, we would probably have got a draw the way things were going.
"I just hope they are learning to win games, especially away from home. I'm genuinely pleased with the result.
"I just think they now have a little bit of belief, and it might sound silly, but they realise the importance of what it means to play for Rangers and winning games of football.
"There are a lot of young lads in there who are new to it and there are a lot of newcomers too. But we seem to have developed a little bit of togetherness.
"I'm just hoping there is a mental toughness developing that can see out games."
