Warburton would love Rangers reunion with Alex Pritchard, admits move is unlikely

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Mark Warburton has admitted he would to sign Alex Pritchard.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the Daily Record that whilst he would love to sign Alex Pritchard, a move is very unlikely.

Warburton arrived as the new boss at Ibrox earlier this summer, but is still best known for his work with Brentford. Last season, one of his key players at Griffin Park was Tottenham youngster Pritchard, who spent a year on loan under Warburton.

The playmaker racked up 12 goals and seven assists for Brentford last season, before returning to Spurs this summer, where he is expected to play a part under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

Warburton has used his connections at Spurs to great effect already this summer, tying up loan deals for Tottenham youngsters Dominic Ball and Nathan Oduwa, who have both arrived at Ibrox this month.

However, Warburton was asked about the prospect of reuniting with Pritchard at Rangers - but told the Daily Record that whilst he is a huge fan of the player, a move to Glasgow is far from likely, considering his role at Spurs.

"I would love to bring Alex Pritchard here on loan but I think he will be playing at a very high level. He will be a top player," said Warburton.

With just days of the transfer window left to go, it seems unlikely that Rangers will be making too many moves, given that Warburton has already snapped up ten new signings this summer.

Pritchard would certainly be an exceptional signing for Spurs, and even though he has already worked wonder with Warburton, it's clear that a move to Ibrox is virtually inconceivable right now.
