Rangers boss Warburton discusses potential signing of Toumani Diagouraga

Rangers have been linked with signing Toumani Diagouraga.

Rangers boss Warburton has told the official club YouTube channel that any interest in players is merely paper talk, when asked whether Toumani Diagouraga is set to sign for the Gers.

Warburton said: “Rangers go about their business. We do not talk about any other clubs or players. We’ll go about our business and target the players we think are appropriate for Rangers. I read in the papers [about offers/interest] but nothing has come from Rangers. We’re looking for two, maybe three [signings this window].”

Warburton has admitted that he wants to bring in two or three more players, to go with Harry Forrester and Maciej Gostomski, who have already linked up with the Gers this month.

Josh Windass and Matt Crooks have also been signed up, but they will not arrive at Ibrox until the start of next season, and Warburton wants further signings this month to improve the Gers chances of winning promotion.

However, he refused to acknowledge the interest in players who have been linked with Rangers in the media, such as Diagouraga.

The Record claimed earlier this week that three bids have been put in by Warburton’s men for Diagouraga of Brentford, without yet matching his asking price, but the manager refused to accept such reports.

He could merely be covering up the news in case the Gers cannot complete a deal for Diagouraga this month, or Warburton could be telling the truth; that being, Rangers are not actually interested in signing the 28-year-old French midfielder.
