Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told the Daily Record that his side’s search for a striker is still continuing.

Rangers have been on the hunt for a new front man throughout the summer, despite already having snapped up Josh Windass from Accrington Stanley.

The Ibrox side have been linked with a host of potential targets - with names such as Tom Bradshaw, Will Grigg and, even, Danny Ings touted as possible additions for the newly promoted Scottish Premiership side.

However, Warburton claims that the actual front man Rangers are looking at has not yet been linked in the press.

“We have been linked to so many strikers and that’s good because the real targets have not been mentioned,” Warburton said.

“The one we want is one the media haven’t dug up yet, but I have no doubt you will keep on digging.

“It’s not simple sometimes. Clubs want £2million, you are prepared to pay £500,000 and you try to meet somewhere in the middle.

“We might spend money or we might not. The trick is to get the work done under the radar, as Frank McParland has been doing.”

Rangers have already been highly active so far this transfer window, as they look to add depth to their squad

Rangers earned promotion last season with a compact squad, but Warburton has been quick to add depth to his side this summer.

As well as adding a striker, Rangers also want to bring in another centre-back to provide competition at the back.

Rangers’ competitive season gets underway with a League Cup first round match against Motherwell on 16th July.
