Mark Warburton has been busy, and the 25-year-old says Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers will be going for a clean sweep.

Quoted by The Daily Mail, Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham says that the Gers will go into this season with the ambition of winning every possible competition.

By virtue of the fact Rangers are preparing for their first season back in the Scottish Premiership in four years, it has been suggested that manager Mark Warburton should employ a 'crawl before you can walk' mentality within his squad for the campaign ahead.

In June, Rangers legend Michal Mols intimated to The Glasgow Evening Times that his former club should focus on finishing in the top six rather than aim to win the title in their first season back.

Warburton has made eight signings this summer, with Premier League veterans Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar among them, and Foderingham says that not only is pipping Celtic to league glory on the agenda, but so is every other trophy.

"This year we will be going all out to win everything. There is no other way. That is just our mentality," the 25-year-old, who will compete with Matt Gilks for the number one shirt next term, said via The Mail.

Celtic will certainly be favourites to land a sixth straight Premiership crown next term, with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers taking over from Ronny Deila and luring highly-rated French striker Moussa Dembele to Parkhead last week.

But with the business Rangers have done, their supporters will be optimistic that they can push their bitter Old Firm rivals - who they beat in the Scottish Cup semi-final last season - very close in the hunt for major honours.
