Rangers manager Mark Warburton told the Glasgow Evening Times that he will never stop looking for new players who can improve the squad options he already has available.
Warburton has already overseen some impressive changes to the club’s playing staff this summer and he’s revealed that he will never rule out the possibility of more fresh faces, if he feels those players improve the options he already has.
“I’m always looking at options to improve the quality we have - If you look at our squad we have the likes of Kenny Miller, Cammy Bell and, potentially, John Eustace, then we have enough senior professionals,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“I’m all about them mentoring the hungry, younger players, the ones with potential.”
Proceed with caution
While it’s encouraging that Warburton appears to be constantly alive to the possibility of new players, he has to proceed with caution.
The majority of big clubs, and Rangers fall into that bracket, tend to try and get business done before the start of the domestic season.
That allows a side to go into games with a settled and balanced mentality, knowing that there aren’t going to be too many more extra changes, which changes the shape of the team and create settling in periods.
If Warburton decides that he still needs players than it’s more likely to be a case of tweaking as opposed to overhauls in playing staff to change his options.
Rangers already have a good squad in all areas with a good balance between experience and youth and it’s important for the manager to protect that.
