Report: Fulham prepare desperate bid to lure Mark Warburton away from Rangers


Fulham are reportedly trying to lure Mark Warburton away from Rangers.

According to The Telegraph, Fulham will make one more desperate, last-ditch attempt to lure Rangers boss Mark Warburton back to London.

The Cottagers are currently without a manager having sacked Kit Symons, and they played out a 1-1 draw at home to Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.

Fulham need an appointment quickly if they are to progress this season, but it's suggested that the club are having trouble finding a new manager.

The Telegraph report that Nigel Pearson, Reading boss Steve Clarke and Birmingham manager Gary Rowett have all snubbed the post recently, leaving Fulham to now go back for Warburton.

A report from The Scottish Sun earlier this month suggested that Warburton had told both Fulham and QPR that he wanted to build something at Rangers rather than immediately return to London, having impressed with West London rivals Brentford last season.

Now, The Telegraph suggest that Fulham are preparing one more last-ditch attempt to lure Warburton away from Ibrox and back to the Championship.

However, it seems highly unlikely that Warburton would suddenly change his stance and head to Craven Cottage, given the success he has had with Rangers so far this season.
