Alexander knows all about the demands of playing for the Light Blues but he knows that the new recruits are still coming to terms with it all.
There is a vast difference between the surroundings at Ibrox – which is set to be near capacity for tomorrow’s Queen’s Park game – and the away venues in SFL 3.
However, Alexander says the new boys – especially the non-Scots – need to adapt as quickly as possible.
He said: “I think the gaffer has been trying to instill what it means to be a Rangers player to all the new boys who have come in.
“They maybe don’t fully understand what it means to play for Rangers and what the fans expect.
“He has been explaining to them what it is expected when you pull that blue jersey on week in, week out.
“Draws are not acceptable and defeats are even worse so the gaffer is trying to get it into our mind-set what’s acceptable to him and to the fans.
“He has made it plain that that if things don’t improve then he will make changes because he wants the best for the club, as the players do.
“I think the foreign lads are trying to understand what it means to be at this club – and that does take time.
“When you are at other clubs you might get away with a draw or the odd defeat away from home but not here at Rangers.
“It’s that mental attitude that they need to take on-board and learn – and it’s a tough thing to come here and cope with the pressure.
“That has been mounting because of our away from and they are probably not used to that. The sooner everyone deals with it we will become a much stronger and better team.”
