Aston Villa? QPR? Mark Warburton is better off at Rangers

Mark Warburton

Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers-linked Mark Warburton should remain in charge of Scottish Championship side Rangers.

Mark Warburton has been in charge of Rangers since the summer, and he has done a truly superb job at the Scottish Championship side.

Rangers are course to winning the league title and gaining automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season. The Gers are also through to the semi-finals of the Scottish Challenge Cup.

Warburton is popular among the Rangers fan, the board like him, and the players enjoy working with him.

There is no reason whatever for the Englishman to quit Rangers now or next summer.

Last month, Warburton was linked with the Aston Villa managerial job following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood as the Premier League club’s boss.

According to The Daily Mail, Villa sporting director Hendrik Almstadt is an admirer of the former Brentford boss.

Warburton is now being linked with Queens Park Rangers, with Get West London claiming that the Championship outfit will need to pay Rangers around £300,000 to secure the services of the Englishman.

The 53-year-old should resist all temptations to go back to England and should continue his work at Rangers.

Rangers are a club on the up and are likely to be competing in the Scottish Premiership next season.

At Ibrox, Warburton has the chance to create something big. The Englishman has the chance to take Rangers back to their glory days and help them challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season.

What will Warburton achieve at QPR this season? A top-six finish in the Championship? Then maybe promotion to the Premier League?

Then what? Fight for survival and get sacked after a few months when positive results are hard to come by?

Warburton is better off in Scotland with Rangers.
