Mark Warburton gives Rangers transfer update, comments on Scott Allan

Scottish Championship side Rangers have made seven signings so far this summer.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that he is close to making more signings this summer.

The Gers have been busy in the transfer market so far this summer, signing no fewer than seven new players.

Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham (free), central defenders Danny Wilson (free) and Rob Kiernan (Wigan Athletic), winger Andy Halliday (free), forward Martyn Waghorn (Wigan Athletic), right-back James Tavernier (Wigan Athletic) and Jason Holt (Hearts) have all been already snapped up by Rangers.

Warburton has now stated that he plans to made more additions to his current squad.

“We are making progress,” the 52-year-old told The Scottish Sun in regard to making two loan deals.

“It is about timing and making sure it is right for all parties. We are getting closer.”

Scott Allan interest

Warburton has also suggested that Rangers could make another bid for Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan.

According to The Scottish Sun, the Gers had two bids for the 23-year-old former West Bromwich Albion man rejected last week.

“Scott Allan is a Hibs player, it is as simple as that,” Warburton told The Scottish Sun. “It is not for me to talk about another club’s player. From Rangers’ perspective, we must always be looking to add quality.”

Tough for Rangers to sign Scott Allan?

Both Rangers and Hibernian will be aiming to win the Scottish Championship title this season and get automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Allan is one of the best midfielders in the Championship and enjoyed a superb season in 2014-15.

It makes sense for Hibs not to sell one of their best players to the Gers, as that is only going to strengthen their main rivals.
