John Brown has told Glasgow Rangers official website that he has been impressed by the work they have done in the transfer market so far.

Rangers have been busy up to now, adding no fewer than four new players to their squad before the transfer window has officially opened.

After securing deals for Accrington Stanley duo Josh Windass and Matt Crooks, Mark Warburton move to sign Jordan Rossiter from Liverpool.

He then added Joey Barton on a free transfer from Burnley, with more signings expected before the Scottish Premiership season begins.

And Brown says he has been impressed by the work he has done, believing that Warburton knows how to identify a good player.

“I think it’s good business and we’ll see that come the start of next season,” he told rangers.co.uk.

“Mark knows a level of player – and we saw that last season where a number of the squad came and the fans didn’t know a lot of the names, but they had an outstanding year.”

Of those four signings, it is Barton that has got the fan base the most excited, with him turning down the chance to return to the Premier League with Burnley to move to Ibrox.

It is hoped that the midfielder will add experience to a relatively young Gers side, both on and off the pitch. And Brown says he is expecting Barton to be Warburton’s manager on the pitch as they seek to challenge for the title.

“The manager will look for a manager on the park, and he’ll have just that in Joey Barton,” he added.
