Dave King claims Warburton is already working on bringing summer signings to Rangers

Rangers are already working on summer signings, according to chairman Dave King.

Rangers chairman Dave King has told the club's official website that manager Mark Warburton is already working on potential summer signings.

The Gers not only sit 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship having lost just two games this term, but they are also into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup too.

A 4-0 win over Premiership side Dundee sent Rangers coasting into the last four, where they have been drawn against Old Firm rivals Celtic, in what looks to be an incredible encounter.

Whether Rangers win or lose that game at Hampden Park, it seems that they will be facing Celtic on a regular basis in the near future, as promotion to the Premiership is drawing ever closer.

Manager Warburton has been backed in the transfer market this season, bringing in the likes of Wes Foderingham, James Tavernier, Danny Wilson, Rob Kiernan, Jason Holt, Andy Halliday and Martyn Waghorn, before January saw him snap up Harry Forrester and Michael O'Halloran to boost his attacking options.

Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass are heading to Ibrox this summer having signed pre-contract agreements, but manager Warburton will still be keen on further additions.

Now, Rangers chairman Dave King has told the club's official website that Warburton has actually already started planning new signings, having held internal meetings about potential transfer targets this summer, with King look looking for progression over the coming years.

"It was always anticipated that further acquisitions would be necessary to compete in the Premiership if promotion was secured," said King. "Mark and the football executive are already working on the player-recruitment plan for the close season when we will bring in a number of new players to meet our ambitions to continue to compete at higher levels in the coming seasons," he added.
