Lee Wallace predicts when Rangers boss Mark Warburton will leave Ibrox for Premier League job

Rangers FC Stands

Warburton has led the Gers to the Scottish Championship title and Challenge Cup this season.

Lee Wallace believes that it is inevitable that Mark Warburton will leave Rangers for a job in the Premier League, but suggested that he will have plenty of silverware in his trophy cabinet before that day comes, The Scottish Sun reports.

The former Brentford boss has been linked with Everton recently (via The Scottish Sun) following an exceptional first season at Ibrox which has seen the Light Blues win the Scottish Championship title, the Challenge Cup and win an Old Firm game on the way to the Scottish Cup final.

And while the club's skipper is confident that Warburton will depart for a top job down south, he assured Rangers supporters that he expects the boss to achieve a lot more before he moves on.

"I definitely think the manager will end up in the English Premiership," he told The Scottish Sun.

"Once he's had four or five years with us, winning the top flight and being successful at the top level, bringing European football back to Ibrox, I think he is destined for the very top.

"He is a top manager and a top human being. It has gone well this season and I just hope he stays for the foreseeable future."

Not only has Warburton brought some success to the club, and secured their place in the Scottish Premiership for next season, but the style of play that he has brought in has made the Gers one of the most exciting teams to watch currently.

So it is understandable that he has been linked with the likes of Everton. The Toffees play some of the most fantastic football but often appear to sacrifice results because of their fluidity, and the club's hierarchy may be looking at what Warburton is achieving and think that he could be the man that makes sure that the balance is right.

And while the 28-year-old is confident that his manager is here to stay for the next few years, it will surely become more and more difficult to keep hold of him with every trophy they win.
