Ally McCoist has warned Rangers must start improving their away form and hopes the reality of playing in the Third Division has hit home with his players.
Rangers have yet to catch fire since their demotion to the bottom rung of Scottish football and sit fourth in the table after five games.
Though the Gers are unbeaten, McCoist's side have drawn all three matches away from home - the latest an uninspiring 0-0 stalemate at Annan Athletic at the weekend.
McCoist insists it is not yet a 'total disaster', but has urged his players to improve the level of performance and results on their travels.
"I can't speak for the players because I don't have their opinion on it," said McCoist. "But I would hope the fact of where we are has hit home to them now.
"For all the glory and joy of playing at Ibrox in front of 45,000 you still get the same three points away from home when you go to Annan, Berwick and Peterhead.
"While it is a different setup entirely, we have to get better results away from home. It is not a disastrous scenario as we have drawn three games and not lost them but we still need to get better.
"I don't think it is down to preparation. We have prepared for the away games as we would have done for an SPL game.
"It's just not clicked yet. The three draws are not a total disaster, three defeats would have been. But that's not a cop-out, we have to do better away from home."
