Rangers boss Mark Warburton comments on Ibrox player’s tough situation

Rangers manager Mark Warburton comments on David Templeton’s current situation at Ibrox.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Express that it is tough for David Templeton at the moment.

Templeton has been on the books of Rangers since 2012 and has a contract until June 2016.

The 27-year-old winger has a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines for most of the season.

Warburton has admitted that it is tough times for the former Scotland Under-21 international at the moment.

“It’s been difficult for Temps,” the Englishman told The Express. “He came in for the first three games and then got the injury and he’s never played since. It’s tough.”

It remains to be seen whether Templeton gets a new contract from Rangers or not, but it is hard to see why the Gers would keep him on.

Rangers have been successful without the former Heart of Midlothian winger this season and have already gained automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Templeton would not find it easy to play regularly for the Gers next season, and perhaps he should leave the Ibrox side at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

Rangers, who have won the Scottish Championship title and the Scottish Challenge Cup this season, will clinch the treble if they get the better of Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup.
