Warburton coy over Rangers job, says King has 'big decision' to make

Rangers FC Stands

Mark Warburton says there is 'no update' over him taking the Rangers job.

Mark Warburton has told the Daily Record that Rangers have a 'big decision' to make over their new manager - but says he has no update over whether he will take the job.

Rangers are edging closer to making a managerial appointment, with current boss Stuart McCall's contract expiring this summer - and the 6-1 aggregate defeat to Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership play-offs means that McCall is unlikely to retain his role in the Ibrox dugout.

New chairman Dave King will be looking to bring in his own man to lead Rangers into the new era, and the bookmakers have a clear favourite for the job.

With odds compiled by Oddschecker, the bookmakers have now suspended all bets on Mark Warburton becoming the new Rangers manager, after a report from The Sun suggested that the 52-year-old was a matter of hours away from being named the new manager at Ibrox.

Warburton not only guided Brentford to automatic promotion from League One in 2014, but also took the Bees to the Championship play-offs in May - though a structural change at Griffin Park has led to Warburton's exit.

Now the favourite to replace McCall in Glasgow, Warburton has moved to play down the reports that he will become the new Rangers manager, saying there is 'no update' - but acknowledges that he is waiting for Rangers to make a big decision.

"There is no update at the moment. This is a big decision for a club of the stature of Rangers and they will want to get it right," said Warburton
