Mark Warburton claims he's spoken to a couple of players in America about joining Rangers

Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton is looking to bring more players to Ibrox.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told Sky Sports that, whilst on a trip to New York, he spoke to 'a couple of players' about signing for the club.

The Gers lost 2-1 to Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on Saturday afternoon, meaning that Warburton won't end his first season at Ibrox with a domestic treble.

Regardless, Warburton will be looking to bring in some new signings this summer, and has already snapped up three new additions ahead of the club's return to the Scottish Premiership next season.

Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass as well as Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter have all signed pre-contract agreements with Rangers, but Warburton appears to have his eyes on targets further afield.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Warburton has admitted that a number of players are on his radar, and having travelled to New York earlier this month, he revealed that he 'spoke to a couple of players' about possible summer moves to Ibrox.

"There's a number of players on our radar, like all clubs at this time of the year," said Warburton. "You are looking at potential targets and players who might add value and quality to your current squad. I was in New York very briefly, I spoke to a couple of players, and we will see where that goes," he added.

It was of course reported by the Daily Record earlier this week that Warburton held talks with New York Cosmos star Niko Kranjcar whilst out in the States, but now it appears that more players in America are on his wish list too.

Suggestions on Twitter this week were that Warburton was interested in signing Portland Timbers striker Fanendo Adi, and whilst those claims are so far unsubstantiated, the giant striker would certainly offer something different to the Rangers attack.

With a host of players still needed at Ibrox, Warburton will be hoping to get his business done early, and will now be hoping to land his targets in America this summer.
