Mark Warburton expects Rangers to make two new signings in the coming days.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told Sky Sports that he is expecting two new signings at the club in a matter of days - and The Scottish Sun claim deals for Toumani Diagouraga and Michael O'Halloran are close.

The Gers swept to another victory in the Scottish Championship on Saturday, hammering Livingston 4-1 at Ibrox thanks to goals from Danny Wilson, Kenny Miller and a Martyn Waghorn brace.

The result leaves Rangers six points clear at the top of the table, with Warburton edging his side closer to promotion back to the top flight of Scottish football.

Still, Warburton is looking for more new signings this month, even after landing goalkeeper Maciej Gostomski and playmaker Harry Forrester on six-month contracts.

Pre-contract agreements have also been signed with Accrington duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass, and whilst they will arrive in the summer, Warburton appears to be keen on making two major signings for now.

The Scottish Sun report that Rangers are close to completing deals for Brentford midfielder Toumani Diagouraga and St. Johnstone forward Michael O'Halloran, two major coups for the Ibrox club.

Warburton was asked by Sky Sports about both players after the game against Livingston, and whilst he refused to comment on specific players, he did reveal that two new signings are imminent, with Diagouraga and O'Halloran the overwhelming favourites.

"Michael is a St Johnstone player and I'm never going to talk about another team's players," said Warburton. "I'm not going to talk about Toumani either. He's a Brentford player and we will only ever comment once any business is completed."

"However, we think we are close with a couple of players. A lot of work has gone on in the background but hopefully we will get the deal over the line in the coming days," he added.
