Rangers hero Neil McCann praises club's transfer business, names two players who have stood out

Rangers hero McCann has been pleased with Mark Warburton’s restructuring of the club.

Speaking to the Evening Times, ex-Rangers midfielder Neil McCann has praised the work completed in the transfer window by Mark Warburton, singling out two players to have truly impressed this season.

McCann said: “They are gelling well, they are playing well and [James] Tavernier, in particular, and [Martyn] Waghorn are two really good signings that have made impacts. What they [Rangers] are getting as well are guys that are at a good age and are hungry. It maybe didn’t quite work out for them at other clubs. But they are at a good age so, all of a sudden, not only are they being successful in the team, but they could become sellable assets as well.”

McCann has highlighted the main area in which Rangers have been looking to complete business in the transfer market, by bringing in young and undervalued players from other clubs for cheap prices.

They are then moulded into a team by Warburton, who can either promise them top flight football in the future, or a move to a more finically wealthy club if they are a success at Ibrox.

This means that all the players are performing for both themselves and the club, and it is hard to name a single player who has been playing badly this season. McCann has named Waghorn and Tavernier as two of the players who have really impressed, and the latter is a player who was struggling to get a game with Wigan last season, and then spent time on loan with Bristol City.

Only Waghorn and Danny Wilson could be considered key players at their former clubs, and Warburton’s preference to find undervalued players for Rangers has been working wonders so far.
