Mark Warburton in the frame for Rangers job

Published Add your comment

Mark Warburton has been linked with a move to Rangers with the position set to become vacant when interim boss Stuart McCall is dismissed.

Warburton, who, like McCall, guided his side to the play-offs only to suffer disappointment, developed a young and evolutionary style of football at Brentford and the side's top six finish in the Championship was seen as admirable enough for the Glasgow club.

The 52-year-old, alongside ex-Rangers skipper Davie Weir, guided the Bee's to an unlikely play-off position in the Championship and Warburton has claimed that if he does make the move to Glasgow that he would be taking Weir with him as assistant manager.

However, Warburton who has become the favourite for the role, is still keeping his cards close to his chest and is staying respectful towards Stuart McCall who is still in the frame for the position. 

In an interview with The Herald, Warburton had the utmost respect for the situation.

He said: "Nothing disrespectful has been done on my part or David Weir's part.

"I don't want to come across as arrogant, but I hope very much that the way we played at Brentford last season tells you a lot about Davie and me."


Dave King, the Rangers chairman, has been urged to pounce on the opportunity to snap up one of the UK's brightest managers as suitors such as Fulham are reportedly keen to keep him from moving north of the border. 

A decision on the job is to be made in the next coming days and with Warburton remaining the favourite to join Rangers it would be the beginning of a huge shake up needed at the club as the 11 players already having left the club indicates.
