The Daily Record reported yesterday that Glendon had moved north of the border to link up with Warburton’s side, training with the Rangers first-team.
He is currently part of City’s Under-21 side, captaining them on most occasions, and even made an appearance on the substitutes bench for Manuel Pellegrini’s first-team earlier this season in the Champions League. However, he has yet to make his debut for the Premier League leaders.
A 20-year-old midfielder, Glendon is known to Warburton due to the time he spent in City’s youth academy when they played in the NextGen Series, which was run by the current Gers boss.
Warburton has already used his youth links in English football to bring Nathan Oduwa, Dominic Ball and Gedion Zelalem to Rangers, and Glendon could be the next highly rated youngster to make the move to Ibrox.
There are no indications as to whether Rangers will be looking to tie Glendon up to a permanent deal or simply loan him from City, but clearly Warburton has seen something in the youngster which has made him believe he can play a role with the Gers this season.
