Reported Leeds United and Rangers managerial target Mark Warburton reveals offers from ‘one or two clubs’

Brentford manager Mark Warburton is reportedly being targeted by Leeds United and Rangers.

Reported Leeds United and Rangers managerial candidate Mark Warburton has told Sky Sports that he has been approached by “one or two clubs”.

Warburton is still under contract at Championship outfit Brentford, but he will officially leave them in the summer.

According to The Daily Mail, both Leeds and Rangers are interested in the services of the 52-year-old, who led the Bees to a top-six finish in the Championship this season.

Leeds are hoping to challenge for Premier League promotion next season, while Rangers are currently involved in the Scottish Premiership playoffs.

Warburton has now responded to speculation on his future, revealing on Sky Sports’ Morning Views show today that he has been approached by a couple of clubs.

“(There have been) a few tentative enquiries, which is nice, we will see what happens,” said Warburton.

“But as with the players, it’s about hoping to get the right opportunities and making the right decisions. I think you live and die by your decisions. Hopefully the right offers will come along.”

“One or two clubs,” added the Englishman when pressed on how many clubs have approached him.

Warburton is one of the most-sought after managers in the Championship, and one suspects that he will have to be convinced to take charge of a club.

After leading Brentford to promotion from League One to the Championship, the Englishman almost guided them to the Premier League.

The former Enfield defender’s achievement with the Bees becomes even more impressive when one considers that the likes of Derby County and Nottingham Forest finished below them in the Championship table this season.
