Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has admitted to the Telegraph that the new arrivals at Ibrox may be shocked by the intensity and focus on them.

Rangers are set to have a lot of media attention around them this season, as they return to the Scottish Premiership.

And Warburton feels that even the more experienced members of his Rangers squad may find the scrutiny on them a shock at first.

“To get people like Joey Barton, Clint Hill and Jordan Rossiter, plus Josh Windass and Matt Crooks – they are good, early, high-quality acquisitions. I am delighted with them,” he said.

“I think the intensity here will be a shock to them. They are both very experienced professionals, so they are going to say all the right things. I said to them, ‘There is a media interest probably unlike most others’.”

Rangers have added more players than any other side in Scotland to date this transfer window, and they do not seem to be slowing down.

Warburton has expressed a desire to increase the depth of his squad at Ibrox, with plenty more new arrivals due.

Rangers are closing in on signing both Niko Kranjcar and Matt Gilks, with the pair both expected to pen deals with the Ibrox side in the coming days.

Rangers have also been linked with Adrian Mariappa and James Vaughan, but it remains to be seen whether the pair will make the switch to Ibrox.
