New Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he doesn’t feel manager Mark Warburton could have sold the club to him more effectively.
Foderingham has also confirmed that he had the chance to play in the English Championship, but was left impressed after Warburton explained details of his three-year plan for the Gers before he signed on the dotted line to make the move official.
“Mark could not have sold it to me any better, to be honest,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“He’s aiming high to get out of this division at the first time of asking, then compete in the Premiership and there into the Champions League. That’s the three-year plan, that’s the aim.”
Bodes well for the future
Warburton’s negotiation and persuasive skills appear to be as good as they ever have been during his short coaching career to date.
The bodes well for Rangers as the Scottish Championship club will have ambition to further improve their squad over the next couple of weeks ahead of the competitive action returning.
In terms of having a manager in place who can sell the club to new signings, Warburton appears to tick every box.
One step at a time
The three-year plan that Foderingham talks about is appealing but it’s important the club only proceeds one step at a time.
There is already massive pressure on Rangers to win on a weekly basis and to progress, but an arguably better approach for Warburton is to keep the aims small and short term, not allowing the squad to get too far ahead of themselves.
The plan is an impressive one but it’s going to be a long journey before Rangers get there.
