Mark Warburton comments on Rangers' scouting plans after latest Ibrox arrival

Rangers FC

Rangers have appointed Frank McParland as their new chief scout.

As confirmed on the club's official website earlier today, Rangers have appointed Frank McParland as their new chief scout.

McParland, formerly of Liverpool, has left Championship club Burnley in order to reunite with Mark Warburton and David Weir at Rangers, having worked together at Brentford previously.

The 56-year-old is widely credited as the man who helped Liverpool snap up Raheem Sterling, and Rangers will now be hoping that he can repeat the trick during his time at Ibrox.

Manager Mark Warburton faced the press earlier today to speak about this weekend's game against Queen of the South, but was asked about McParland's arrival.

As quoted by the club's official Twitter account, Warburton stated that he is glad to work alongside McParland again, admitting that he will not only be looking for players in England, but also all across Europe as Rangers look for reinforcements.

 

 

The comments from Warburton give an encouraging insight in to what Warburton and Rangers have planned in terms of scouting over the coming years, with ambitious ideas about who they can scout and who they can bring to the club.

Supporters should be pleased with what Warburton had to say earlier today, and there should also be plenty of excitement over who could be arriving at Ibrox following McParland's appointment.
