Rangers' summer signing Libor Sionko believes the strength of manager Paul Le Guen's squad could restrict his first team opportunities at Ibrox.

But the Czech Republic international, who joined The Gers on a Bosman free transfer after seeing out his contract at Austria Vienna, is in no doubt that he has made a wise career move.

Sionko has been delighted with the start to his Rangers career - the concession of a late penalty at Kilmarnock aside.

"Everything is going well. We are only angry at ourselves for conceding a penalty at Kilmarnock," Sionko told Pravo.

"We should be leading the league, but we have not been beaten and, with two wins and three draws, are only one point behind Celtic and Hearts."

The 29-year-old admits the competition for first team places at Rangers is as fierce as he has ever known.

"Rangers are a giant club with a lot of competition," added Sionko.

"There are two players for every position and the quality of the players is so high - I have never experienced anything like it.

"I have to get used with sometimes being on the bench but at a big club it is normal that you don't always play."
