Rangers boss suggests an incentive that would attract players to Ibrox

Mark Warburton

Rangers manager Mark Warburton hopes to attract players to Ibrox in the summer transfer window by using the Europa League as an incentive.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Express that qualifying for the Europa League next season could help the club sign good players in the summer transfer window.

The Gers have progressed to the final of the Scottish Cup this season, and should they win it, then they stand a chance of featuring in the Europa League during the 2016-17 campaign.

Warburton has suggested that he would be able to sign good players for next season if he can bring European football to the table.

“From a recruitment perspective you use every tool you can,” the Englishman told The Express. “If you can throw Europe into the mix, fantastic. Hopefully that allows you to attract a good level of player.”

Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship title this season and have gained automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers will need to make signings in the summer transfer window in order to compete for a top-two or top-three finish in the Scottish Premiership.

The prospect of playing for Rangers in the Europa League is certainly going to be an incentive for any potential signings, although one must not get carried away at the moment.

For now, the Glasgow giants should think about signing players who are going to help them become competitive in the Scottish Premiership next season.
