Rangers manager Mark Warburton has criticised the Scottish media following negative coverage of their Old Firm derby defeat.

They lost 5-1 at Celtic in the Scottish Premiership last weekend.

Warburton believes the attitude of journalists is holding the country back.

"The whole media aspect up here is so negative," he said.

"I'm not understating the importance of the result but no-one has died. We've got to get on with it. I'm an Englishman working in Scotland and I find it depressing that some of the comments, some of the programmes on TV, are so negative."
