Alan Judge unsurprised Mark Warburton is enjoying success at Rangers but explains why he'll never join him at Ibrox

The Brentford playmaker worked under the Light Blues boss when he was in charge at Griffin Park.

Brentford playmaker and Celtic fan Alan Judge has heaped praise upon Rangers boss Mark Warburton and claimed that he would like to play under the former Bees coach again in the future, but insisted that they will not be linking up while he is at Ibrox, The Scottish Sun reports.

When Warburton joined the Scottish Championship side in the summer, he used his knowledge of the English game excellently to create a side that now looks set to return to the Scottish Premiership after several years away.

And while Judge has admitted that he had the opportunity to follow the Gers boss to the club, he claimed that he does not plan on playing for the bitter rivals of his boyhood team any time soon, despite his admiration for Warburton.

"I wouldn't be going to Rangers, not a chance," he told The Scottish Sun.

"Was I asked [to join Rangers]? Yeah, of course he did, but no, not a chance.

"I'm not surprised at all that he's doing well at Rangers. He's a great manager and he was the reason I went down to Brentford.

"I've a lot to thank him for and I'd really look forward to working with him in the future if that's possible.

As impressive as the 27-year-old has been this season - scoring 14 goals and contributing nine assists in the Championship - it appears that Warburton's men have not been too badly affected by him not joining them in the summer.

Rangers are 11 points clear at the top of the table with just seven games to go, so appear to be well on course to secure automatic promotion.

But while they maybe have not needed him this term, they could surely do with a player with his technical ability for next season when the teams that they will come up against become much more difficult to break down.
