Report: Gers boss Mark Warburton receives Swansea City interest, departure still unlikely

Swansea City are reportedly interested in Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

According to Wales Online, Rangers boss Mark Warburton has been made aware of interest in his services from Swansea City - but he isn't their first choice to replace Garry Monk.

The Swans have lost four of their last five games, and the pressure has mounted on Monk to the point where the report from Wales Online suggests that Monk is in the final knockings of his time as manager at the Liberty Stadium.

It's stated that Swansea are interested in bringing ex-manager Brendan Rodgers back to the club, but the former Liverpool boss may not be keen on such a move.

That means that Swansea will have to look elsewhere, and it's reported by Wales Online that they have made their interest in Rangers boss Mark Warburton known.

The former Brentford manager has won 13 of his 15 league games since taking the Rangers job over the summer, and is certainly one of the most highly-rated English managers around.

However, it's believed that Warburton isn't Swansea's first choice for the job when Monk goes, making a move to South Wales even more unlikely for Warburton.

The Gers boss reacted angrily last week to suggestions that he could leave Ibrox for Fulham, telling BBC Sport that the constant speculation over his future is 'disrespectful'.

With that in mind, Warburton seems likely to stay at Rangers and continue with his impressive project in Glasgow, with Swansea seemingly not holding strong enough interest in him to make him leave Ibrox.
