Rangers captain Lee McCulloch insists that the standard of football in the Scottish Premiership is not much different to League One.

Rangers captain Lee McCulloch has claimed that there is little difference between the quality of football in the Scottish Premiership and League One.

The Gers skipper believes that cup upsets such as Motherwell's loss to Albion Rovers and Celtic's defeat at the hands of Greenock Morton prove his point.

"It's a very thin line between the teams in the division we are currently in and the Premiership," he told Rangers' official website.

"You look at Motherwell and they went out to Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup this season, who weren't even at home.

"There was another upset at Celtic when Morton beat them at home and that just shows, if you drop one per cent or hold off half a yard, you'll get punished."

Rangers moved 23 points clear at the top of Scottish League One this afternoon with their 3-2 victory over Arbroath.
