Rangers boss Warburton outlines what he told the players about Ibrox future

Rangers manager Mark Warburton seems happy to remain at Ibrox.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has revealed to The Daily Record what he told his players about speculation linking him with a move away from the club.

Earlier this week, Warburton took to social networking site Twitter to dismiss speculation that he will leave his role at Rangers and take up the vacant managerial post at Championship side Fulham.

The former Brentford boss has revealed that he told his Gers players not to worry about his future, but he has admitted that the situation is not ideal for his team.

“For them then to then hear, five or six months in, all this speculation isn’t great,” Warburton told The Daily Record. “I’m not saying it will unsettle them because they are too strong characters for that.

“But they are young guys and they want to know what’s going on. They want clarity and I’ve been trying to give them clarity over the last two of weeks.

“Again this morning, Davie Weir and I put it to bed straight away and they were happy with that.

"We spoke to the players and told them the truth because they read the same stuff that other people have to unfortunately read.”

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

The Glasgow outfit are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 40 points from 15 matches.

The Gers are three points clear of second-place Hibernian and are favourites to win the league title this season.

Rangers will take on Raith Rovers away from home at Stark's Park in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.
