Report: Rangers open talks with Mark Warburton concerning managers’ role

Rangers have opened talks with Mark Warburton, as they look to name him manager.

Warburton is one of the managers on Rangers’ shortlist of potential appointments, and the BBC are reporting that talks have started between the former Brentford man and the Light Blues’ management.

The 52-year-old is out-of-cotnract this summer, having left his role at Brentford after the club decided to change their approach to management.

In what was his first role with in senior coaching, the former Watford coach impressed, finishing second place in League One last season, and then reaching the Championship play-off semi-finals this term.

He leaves the Bees with a 51.28% win percentage, with 40 victories and just 22 losses in 78 games. He plays attacking and exciting football, and has proven to excel at promotion and nurturing youth talent.

Hiring Warburton would certainly be a coup for Rangers, as despite their name and reputation, he is still coach who would walk into many Premier League jobs if approached.

However, the Gers have looked to get ahead of any rivals by opening talks with him already, and it is apparent that they are keen to wrap up any managerial appointment in the next coming weeks.
