Warburton again clarifies his Gers future amid speculation surrounding Premier League move

Mark Warburton

Mark Warburton has played down speculation of a move to Swansea City.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that it's flattering to be linked with a move to Swansea City, but he's staying at Ibrox.

The Gers boss has won 13 of his 15 league games in charge of the club, since making a summer move from Championship club Brentford.

Those exploits have now led to interest in his services, and it's just a week ago that Warburton furiously told the Daily Record that he wasn't leaving Ibrox amid interest from Fulham.

However, the rumours haven't stopped, and Wales Online reported earlier this week that Swansea City were turning their attention to Warburton as a potential replacement for sacked manager Garry Monk.

Once again, Warburton has been asked about the possibility of leaving Rangers just six months in to the job, but he told The Scottish Sun earlier today that whilst speculation linking him with a move to the Liberty Stadium is flattering, he isn't leaving.

"I'm just going to repeat what I said last week. I surely can't go down this path again," said Warburton. "It's a compliment to the players. Any manager only gets linked to jobs - and it's always flattering - if you are winning games of football," he added.

A move to the Premier League is a much more attractive proposition than Fulham, so it would be natural for Warburton to at least look at a move to Swansea with some interest.

However, it's clear that he is committed to Rangers, and wants to fulfil his project of taking the club back to its former glories - starting with promotion to the top flight this term.
