Mark Warburton gives insight into Rangers' summer transfer strategy

Rangers boss Mark Warburton is expected to bring a new number of new players to Ibrox this summer.

Mark Warburton has hinted that Rangers could look to the future with their recruitment in the summer transfer window, on TalkSPORT’s programme the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on 6th April.

Rangers secured promotion to the Scottish Premiership last night, and they are already making plans to start competing at the top level.

The Light Blues will need to make sure that they get their recruitment correct, with Warburton wanting at least four or five new additions at Ibrox.

However, the former Brentford boss insists that he will not put the Glasgow club’s future in jeopardy by overspending.

Although Warburton wants to add some experience, he is more focused on bringing in players who can improve at Ibrox.

"I wouldn’t be right to go to the board with unrealistic targets," Warburton said.

"We have to show that we do our homework and recruit wisely. Look at the players that came in at my old club [Brentford] - in Andre Gray and Moses Odubajo.

"If we can show that we can do our recruitment wisely and link those with one or two more experience campaigners we’ll be okay. The worst thing we can do is recruit poorly."

Warburton brought in some brilliant quality during his first transfer window with the Scottish giants, and that he has helped the side dominate the Scottish Championship this season.

Rangers are currently 17 points clear at the top of the second tier standings, and they have been by far an away the stand out team outside the Scottish Premiership this season.
