Andy Halliday comments on Rangers boss Mark Warburton’s future

Mark Warburton

Rangers manager Mark Warburton was recently linked with Queens Park Rangers and Fulham.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has told The Daily Record that he is confident that Mark Warburton will remain the team’s manager.

“When a manager is doing so well, it’s only natural that people will be looking at him,” Halliday told The Daily Record. “But the gaffer is really enjoying it here. He is thriving off the demands the club’s got.

“He obviously knows how big the club is and he’ll want to stay and achieve the goals he set himself when he was appointed as the Rangers manager.”

“He doesn’t speak to us about the speculation – when he addresses us about clubs he has been linked with in the paper then that is the time when you can start to panic because maybe he is reading a bit too much into it!” added the 24-year-old.

“No, he is getting on with his job day to day just like we are. That proves to me that he is set on what we are trying to do here.”

Warburton was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer, and he has done a pretty good job at Ibrox so far.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 13 matches, five points clear of second-place Hibernian.

The former Brentford manager is popular among the players and the fans, and his style of football is entertaining to watch.

According to a recent report in The Scottish Sun, Championship duo Fulham and Queens Park Rangers were both interested in the Englishman.

However, Warburton reportedly told Fulham and QPR that he has no intentions of leaving Rangers anytime soon.

Rangers will return to Scottish Championship action on Saturday when they take on Livingston away from home at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
