Writing for the club’s official website, Glasgow Rangers chairman Dave King has insisted that Mark Warburton is in charge of transfers at Ibrox.

Rangers have been busy so far in this summer transfer window, bringing in no less than seven new faces. More signings are likely as Warburton looks to build a squad capable of challenge Celtic for the title next season.

The Gers boss has very much carried out a plan to add experience to his squad so far, with the likes of Joey Barton, Clint Hill, Matt Gilks and Niko Kranjcar all added to the current group.

And King insists that every transfer decision made is solely in the hands of the management team.

“Mark and his team have had a longer time to plan for the strengthening of the squad this season and that bodes well,” he told rangers.co.uk.

“Put simply, player identification and targeting is the sole domain of football management. Executive management only get involved subsequently in the negotiation of commercial terms with targeted players.”

It now remains to be seen what other work that Mark Warburton will look to do in the remainder of the transfer window.

There was clearly a plan to add experience to his squad and he has done just that with the signings he has made so far.

Whether he deems that to be enough or looks to add more or instead now focuses on youth will be the major decision he must make.
