Rangers boss Warburton gives update on Martyn Waghorn and Cammy Bell transfer interest

Rangers striker Waghorn is reportedly wanted by Sheffield Wednesday, and Cammy Bell is a target for Aberdeen.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told the official Gers YouTube channel that there is no interest in either Martyn Waghorn or Cammy Bell, despite reports suggesting otherwise.

Warburton said: “There’s been no interest in Martyn. We’re delighted with Martyn, how he’s performing and the way he trains every single day but there’s been no interest from any other clubs. Cammy Bell, again, the stories in the paper are totally untrue. We’ve had no interest in any Premier League club for Cammy. I'm bemused to read the stories, as Cammy is a Rangers player.”

Waghorn has been been linked with Sheffield Wednesday and Reading of the English Championship, according to the Sun, whilst the Press and Journal claim Aberdeen want to sign Bell this month.

However, Warburton has confirmed that there has not been any interest in the duo, with all the knowledge of potential moves coming from the papers.

He has fielded no offers for either player, and is not aware that Wednesday, Reading or Aberdeen actually want to sign the pair.

Should interest in the duo actually come about, only the exit of Bell this month is likely.

He is third choice keeper, and the Dons need a stopper to replace Danny Ward, who has returned to Liverpool as they cancelled his loan deal.

Waghorn, however, is a key first-team player, and his goalscoring is central the Gers chances of winning promotion to the top flight this season.

Warburton losing him would be a massive mistake on the manager’s part, and even if interest in him is formalised, there is almost no situation that Rangers would sanction his departure this month.
