Rangers manager Mark Warburton wants players who are able to meet the expectations of the Ibrox faithful.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has suggested on talkSPORT two criteria that he wants in players he wants to sign in the summer transfer window.

“When we recruit players, we are looking for players who can play in front of 50,000 at Ibrox and deal with the weight of that expectation week in week out,” said the Englishman.

“Whether that’s a 28-year-old permanent signing or an 18-year-old loan player, they have got to have that ability and that character.”

It seems that for any player interested in joining Rangers in the summer transfer window, he will need to have the character to play in front of 50,000 fans at Ibrox.

The player will also need to be able to deal with the expectation of playing well week after week for the Glasgow giants.

Rangers boss Warburton appears to be setting the standards high, and it seems that he wants to sign players he is absolutely sure of.

With the Gers going strong in the Scottish Championship at the moment, they are likely to get automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

The current Rangers squad is very strong, but it could still do with reinforcements in the summer in order to compete with the likes of Celtic and Aberdeen in the Scottish top flight next season.
