Mark Warburton outlines his vision to develop Rangers

Mark Warburton has a youthful project planned if named Rangers manager.

Warburton looks favourite to take the reins at Ibrox, and he has outlined his managerial vision in an interview with the Herald.

Warburton said: “I strongly believe in youth. I really believe that you can get young, hungry players who can embrace ideas and you marshal them with one or two senior pros who can really mentor them. I am also a big believer in smaller squads.

“I like to have players who can dominate a football, are comfortable in possession and enjoy being in possession.”

Warburton’s comments are certainly ones that should please Rangers fans, with his desire to bring attacking, dominating football to Ibrox something that should build excitement for the future of the club.

Ally McCoist and Stuart McCall may have had success with the Gers - even if McCall lost in the play-off final - but they did so with a rather archaic style of football, with little focus upon the intricacies of play. That may work for them, but Warburton wants to rebuild the philosophy of the club as he looks to win promotion to the Premiership.

The former Brentford boss has also indicated his desire to have a small squad, something which should endear him to the Light Blues’ management, who are looking to cut costs following overspending on underperforming players in recent years.

The 52-year-old has a clear vision outlined for the club, and it is one that has proven to work excellently from his time with Brentford.

Warburton, as well as assistant David Weir, have already held talks with the Rangers board concerning taking charge of the club, and following his recent comments, the Englishman looks to be the perfect candidate to bring success back to Ibrox - whilst playing good progressive football.
