Mark Warburton speaks about certain holes at Rangers

Rangers are having a fantastic season under manager Mark Warburton.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told BBC Scotland that he would like the club to appoint a sporting director in the future.

Warburton, who was appointed the Rangers boss in the summer, worked as a sporting director for English Championship club Brentford.

"We're in a position now where we're moving nicely forward, we're making progress and we have to look at what we need to do now to move to the next level, so that's obviously a subject we'll talk about for sure,” the Englishman told BBC Scotland.

“When the right recruitment individual becomes available then we'll move," added Warburton. "The board recognise there are certain holes within that structure but there's no immediate rush to fill them."

Good idea

The job of a sporting director is very important, and Rangers would need someone for that role in the coming years, maybe even next season.

Once the Gers have returned to the Scottish Premiership, they will need to recruit quality players in order to challenge Celtic for the league title.

Warburton would not be able to do it all on his own, and it would make sense if Rangers appoint a sporting director to help him out.

Strong start

Rangers have made a terrific start to the 2015-16 campaign and are on course to getting automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers have won all six of their Scottish Championship games so far this season and find themselves five points clear at the top of the league table at the moment.

Warburton’s side have also reached the third round of the Scottish League Cup and the quarter-finals of the Scottish Challenge Cup.
