Rangers boss Warburton not a managerial target, claims Fulham spokesperson

Rangers boss Warburton has been linked with the vacant Fulham job.

Quoted in the Daily Record, a Fulham spokesperson has confirmed that the Cottagers have no interest in hiring Mark Warburton from Rangers as their new manager.

The West London club said: “We have no interest in Mark Warburton and do not wish to add to speculation.”

Mark Warburton has excelled since taking charge of Rangers over the summer, and he has been consistently linked with Fulham since the sacking of Kit Symons last month.

Just yesterday, the BBC reported that Warburton was a candidate for the Cottagers, but Fulham today have confirmed that they have no interest in hiring him.

The report claims that Fulham started considering Warburton due to missing out on both Steve Clarke and Gary Rowett, and now they will have to start looking for a new managerial candidate.

Warburton managed to get newly promoted Brentford into the play-offs last season despite many tipping them for relegation, and has led Rangers to the top of the Scottish Championship - with just one defeat in 15 league fixtures.

His teams play a brand of exciting and attacking football, and Warburton looks to be one of the best up and coming managers in British football.

However, Fulham do not intend on bringing him back to West London any time soon, and Rangers are surely going to benefit by keeping ahold of their boss.
