Mark Warburton comments on Twitter at being named Rangers boss

Mark Warburton is the new Rangers boss.

New Rangers boss Mark Warburton has taken to Twitter to express his delight at being named club manager.

Warburton was unveiled as the new boss of the Scottish Championship side on Monday, as the club attempt to get back on track after a rollercoaster of a season which ended in play-off defeat to Motherwell.

The 52-year-old had a short message to fans, expressing succinctly his feeling at being selected as the man to take the club forward.

Warburton even changed the header on his Twitter bio, to read: "Glasgow Rangers 1st Team Manager."

He clearly can't wait to get started, and there is work to be done immediately with the transfer market in full swing.

Former boss Stuart McCall described Warburton as a 'lucky man', at being chosen to take the club forward, as reported by The Mirror, with the former Brentford manager impressed with the 'scope' of possibility Rangers have if they can get back on track to recapture their former glory.

Warburton showed what he could do with the unfancied west London outfit last season, pushing them close to promotion to the Premier League in their first season in the Championship, and hopes to go one better in Scotland in 2015/16.
