Nicky Law admits decisive Warburton meeting, discusses whether he considered Rangers exit

Nicky Law claims he never thought about leaving Rangers.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has told The Scottish Sun that he had a meeting with manager Mark Warburton - but didn't want to leave Ibrox.

Law, 27, hit 13 goals in all competitions for Rangers last season, and particularly thrived under Stuart McCall, having worked with the former Gers boss at Bradford City, Sheffield United and Motherwell.

McCall couldn't land the job at Ibrox on a permanent basis though, and was replaced by former Brentford boss Mark Warburton, who has enjoyed a remarkable start to life in Glasgow.

With nine wins from nine games in the Scottish Championship, Rangers are looking life safe bets for promotion to the Scottish Premiership, as Warburton continues to impress early into his reign with the club.

A host of new signings have helped Rangers, but the likes of Gedion Zelalem, Jason Holt and Andy Halliday have pushed Law out of the starting line-up for most of the season - just months after speculation surrounded his future.

The Daily Mail reported that a host of Championship clubs, including Bolton Wanderers, were looking to sign Law from Rangers, offering him a return to England in the process.

However, Law has now told The Scottish Sun that after a meeting with Warburton on his first day in charge, he never considered leaving Ibrox - and revealed his intention to return to the Rangers starting line-up in the near future.

"My chat with the manager on the first day was really good. He was open with me and it didn’t cross my mind to leave," said Law. "I’d heard a lot of good things about the manager so I wanted to experience it for myself. Obviously of late I’ve not played as much as I’d have liked to, but I’ve nothing but good words to say about him."

"Every day in training his ideas have been brilliant. I was determined to stay. It’s been a tough two years — not only for me, but for everyone. I came to help get Rangers as high as possible, and it didn’t cross my mind to leave because that wasn’t happening. When I came on at the weekend I was heavily involved in the two goals, so when I can help I will do I’ll try to get myself back in the starting line-up and finish the job I came here to do," he added.
