Mark Warburton suggests he will use Rangers’ academy instead of signing new players

Rangers boss Mark Warburton will look to the academy system rather than signing any more players.

Speaking in a press conference, Rangers boss Mark Warburton confirmed he has no problem with looking towards the Light Blues’ academy system if he needs more players, instead of completing any more signings.

Rangers signed 11 players over the summer, and Warburton completed a large overhaul of his playing squad having been appointed in the summer.

He brought in players who fit his system of high energy football, with the overriding factor linking all the signings being youth.

And rather than spending any more money bringing in young players, Warburton has confirmed he has no problem with looking towards Rangers' own youth players currently in their academy system.

The likes of Ryan Hardie and Tom Walsh are currently part of the first-team set-up, whilst Andy Murdoch and Robbie Crawford have totalled over 70 appearances for the Gers between them, even if Warburton has sent them out on loan.

There is a lot of talent in the Rangers academy system right now, and Warburton has shown he is willing to utilise youth previously in his management career.

With the English boss in charge at Ibrox, Rangers look well on their way to success, and his latest comments are another sign that the Scottish giants are set for a bright future.
