Rangers boss expects more Ibrox arrivals imminently amid Diagouraga and O'Halloran rumours

Mark Warburton hopes to have new signings in place for Monday.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that more new signings are expected at Ibrox before Monday's game against Morton.

The Gers have already brought in goalkeeper Maciej Gostomski and playmaker Harry Forrester on six-month contracts, whilst Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass have both signed pre-contract agreements, meaning they will arrive at Ibrox over the summer.

More new signings are being targeted though, with The Scottish Sun reporting that Brentford midfielder Toumani Diagouraga and St. Johnstone forward Michael O'Halloran are top targets for Rangers, and could be closing in on moves to Ibrox.

Both players provide proven quality, and would help Rangers not only win promotion to the top flight, but potentially make a major impact in the Scottish Premiership, should they get there.

Now, Warburton has told the Rangers official website that he intends to have new faces in his squad for Monday's trip to face Morton away from home.

"I hope to have new signings in by Monday, if the work goes ahead and all parties are happy," said Warburton. "In any negotiation all parties have to be happy, so if we can get to that point then great and I am very hopeful we will do. If we’re not then that’s how it is."

"We are making good progress, these things sometimes happen very quickly and other times they demand more negotiation and toing and froing but fingers crossed we get them over the line. We will only talk about a player once we secure the player and they are a Rangers player," he added.

Diagouraga and O'Halloran will no doubt the two names Warburton is desperate to land quickly, and Warburton's comments show that he wants to get his business done quickly, rather than leave it right until the very end of the January transfer window.
