Rangers legend makes a prediction about Mark Warburton’s future

Rangers legend Derek Johnstone says that Mark Warburton will not leave the Gers in the summer.

Derek Johnstone has predicted in The Glasgow Evening Times that Mark Warburton will not leave Rangers in the summer.

Warburton was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer of 2015, and he has done a brilliant job at Ibrox so far.

The Gers are likely to clinch automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season and have also played good football.

Johnstone, who played for Rangers in the 1970s and 1980s and is a club legend, believes that Warburton will remain in Glasgow next season.

“The idea that Mark Warburton might quit Rangers in the summer if he isn’t given more money to spend is nonsense,” the former Scotland international wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.

“I have never heard as much tosh in all my life. Mark knows fine well what his job is at Rangers and what the budgets are that the board have set out.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 56 points from 22 matches.

The Glasgow giants are eight points clear of Hibernian, who are currently second and have a game in hand.

Warburton has done a great job at Rangers, and it would be a massive surprise if he left the club at the end of the season.

After all, the Englishman is popular among the fans, and his reputation will get bigger (if and) when he guides Rangers to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
