Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has told The Scottish Sun that he is a 'big fan' of Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

Redknapp, 69, recently had a spell as manager of Jordan and is now working as a consultant for Central Coast Mariners - but has found time to cast his eye over Rangers and their success this season.

The Gers moved to appoint Mark Warburton as their new manager last summer following his exit from Brentford, and his task before the start of the campaign was simple - win promotion.

Warburton guided his side to the Scottish Championship title in style, losing just five of 36 games to clinch top spot by 11 points from second placed Falkirk.

Add in that Warburton also won the Petrofac Training Cup, guided Rangers to a shock cup win over Old Firm rivals Celtic, and reached the Scottish Cup final, it's clearly been something of a dream season for Rangers and Warburton.

Now, with Warburton and Rangers preparing for life in the top flight, Redknapp has been giving his opinion on the Gers and their impressive manager.

Redknapp has told The Scottish Sun that he is 'a big fan' of Warburton, and praised him for doing a great job at Ibrox this season.

Redknapp added that he thinks Scottish football will be exciting now Rangers are back in the top flight, and thinks it's important that the Gers are there to challenge Celtic at the top of Scottish football.

"Rangers being back in the Premier League is important for all concerned," said Redknapp. "I’m a big fan of Mark Warburton too and I think he’s done a great job. It’s going to be so exciting for Scottish football — well worth a watch," he added.
