Rangers boss Warburton on whether he wanted more January signings

Rangers completed a deadline day move for Michael O’Halloran.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told a press conference that he would have wanted to bring in more signings, as long as only the right players were available for the Ibrox club.

When asked if he wanted more signings, Warburton said: “Only if the right players were available. I think you can do more damage in January by getting too many players, because you can destroy the unity and the harmony of the dressing room. We’ve got a really good squad, and I’d never want to disrupt that.”

Rangers completed a long-running transfer saga on deadline day, bringing in Michael O’Halloran from St Johnstone on a permanent deal.

The deal was one which had been running for much of the January window, and Warburton got his man late in the date.

O’Halloran, 25, became Warburton’s fourth signing of the window, with the manager wrapping up some deals which improve his entire squad.

Harry Forrester and Maciej Gostomski arrived at Ibrox early in the window, with Billy King linking up on loan last week and scoring on his debut. Rangers also signed Matt Crooks and Josh Windass on pre-contract agreements, for them to arrive this summer.

Warburton has admitted that bringing in more players was in his mind over the January window, although he did not want to risk the club’s season by bringing in a player who did not fit his ideal.
