Harry Redknapp speaks highly of Rangers manager Mark Warburton.

Harry Redknapp has been singing the praises of Rangers boss Mark Warburton in The Scottish Sun.

The 68-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United boss has said that he is not surprised by Warburton’s success at Ibrox.

Redknapp, who is without a managerial job at the moment after leaving Queens Park Rangers in February 2015, has highlighted the 52-year-old's time at Brentford as proof that he is a very good manager.

“I've noticed how well how he's doing at Rangers,” the former Tottenham and West Ham manager told The Scottish Sun. “I’m delighted about that - but also not in the least surprised.

"We saw his work at Brentford over the last few years and it was outstanding. I've met Mark a few times and I like the way he talks about the game.

“Rangers deserve credit for appointing someone like him - and I believe they will continue to reap the rewards of that.”

Rangers have made a very good start to the 2015-16 Scottish Championship campaign and are in great form at the moment.

The Gers find themselves at the top of the league table at the moment with nine points from three games.

Rangers have also progressed to the third round of the Scottish League Cup, where they will take on St. Johnstone.

The Glasgow outfit will face Queen of the South away from home at Palmerston Park in Dumfries in the Championship on Sunday.
