Rangers star Wes Foderingham explains what Mark Warburton has told players amid exit speculation

Rangers boss Warburton has been linked with a move to England.

Speaking to the official Rangers YouTube channel, Wes Foderingham has explained what Mark Warburton has told his playing squad amid reports suggesting he will leave Ibrox for a job in England.

Foderingham said: “He said he is here to stay, and that he wants to see out the project. He can’t ask us to come up here [Ibrox] and commit if we are not going to do the same, so it was good for him to say that.”

Warburton’s future has been in major doubt in the last week, with one Championship and one Premier League team said to be keen on bringing in the talented boss.

Sky Sports reported on the interest from Fulham last week, which was rejected by Warburton as being nothing but rumours, whilst the Scotsman today claimed that the Rangers boss was wanted by Swansea should they sack Garry Monk.

There are no confirmations as to whether this is a truthful report, or just rumours as the Fulham job was, but Foderingham has confirmed that Warburton has dedicated his future to his current squad.

The goalkeeper, who was brought to Ibrox over the summer by Warburton, has explained that the manager wants to set an example to his current squad.

He knows that he would lose the trust of his players if, after bringing them to Rangers, Warburton then went and left as soon as a new job opened up. Foderingham has indicated this was the message given by the boss in recent days amid the exit rumours.

Losing Warburton would deal a huge blow to Rangers as they look to get back into the Scottish top flight, but right now it appears as if the manager is extremely keen on remaining at Ibrox for the foreseeable future.
