Rangers boss Mark Warburton discusses Liverpool job speculation

Rangers boss Warburton has been linked with a surprise move to Liverpool.

Rangers are flying high in the Scottish Championship this season, and speaking to the BBC Mark Warburton has denied any interest in taking the ‘flattering’ job of managing Liverpool in the wake of Brendan Rodgers being sacked.

Warburton said: “They are a big club and it's flattering, but Rangers are also a big club.”

There have been no concrete links between Warburton and the vacant managerial job at Liverpool, although the Daily Record reported that he was sixth favourite to take the role at Anfield.

It would certainly be a left-field appointment by the Reds, but one which does tie into their footballing philosophy. Warburton plays an attacking style, has a strong focus on youth, although he is not keen on working in a system which incorporates anyone else being in control of footballing matters - such as Liverpool’s infamous transfer committee.

He has no top flight experience, and has only enjoyed success in the Football League and Scotland’s second tier, and it is no surprise that Warburton has no real interest of heading to Merseyside just yet.

He was only appointed Rangers manager over the summer, and he is attempting to see them complete the season with a 100% wining record in the league, and promotion to the top flight.

However, if Warburton’s star continues to rise in the impressive fashion it has been, it would come as no surprise to see him taking a Premier League job in the future - after leading Rangers back to the top of Scottish football.
