Rangers boss Warburton clarifies Glendon's trial situation

Rangers 3

Rangers have taken the young English midfielder on a trial.

Rangers agreed a deal for George Glendon to train with Mark Warburton’s side this past week, and the manager has explained the situation whilst speaking to the official Rangers YouTube account.

Warburton said: “He’s training with us. He’s come in for a couple of days and is working very well, so we’ll see how that progresses. He’s come here to see if it [a deal] works for all parties, but it’s an early stage right now.”

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.

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.

He is currently part of their 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.

He has linked with up Rangers so Warburton can assess his talents, and the boss has admitted that any deal to sign Glendon is still in it’s early stages. A deal has to work for all parties involved, and there are yet no indications that Warburton has been impressed with the midfielder’s talents.
