Warburton responds when asked about Rangers January transfer budget, Ibrox arrivals targeted

Mark Warburton says he knows what his budget is for the January transfer window.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told STV that he 'knows what he's dealing with' in terms of the club's budget for the January transfer window.

The Gers are looking to win the Scottish Championship this season, giving them promotion back to the top flight - and it's a case of so far, so good for Warburton.

The former Brentford boss, who was appointed over the summer, has won 12 of his 14 league games so far this term, and Rangers sit top of the Scottish Championship right now.

However, Hibernian are chasing close behind, and Rangers may need January additions in order to win the title, even after bringing in 11 new signings over the summer.

Fans want to see another central midfielder brought in, as well as options along the frontline, with wingers and centre forwards wanted.

Now just a month away from the opening of the transfer window, Warburton has been asked about his transfer budget at Ibrox, and his plans for the window.

Warburton told STV that he knows what he's dealing with in terms of the club's budget, and whilst he obviously wouldn't state how much he can spend, he did state that there is a structure in place for planned signings.

"We know what we're dealing with," said Warburton. "We put forward our targets and we talk to Andrew and Stewart every day. Frank McParland has come in here and outlined our targets whether they are permanent, older or younger players, what positions, potential loans and links to other clubs."

"All this goes on and all we can do is do our homework right now and when the window opens see if we can get our business done."
