Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the Daily Mail he would like one or two more signings at the club this summer.

It has been a busy summer for the Rangers boss, who has signed no fewer than nine new players so far.

The latest of those was Joe Dodoo with the striker joining from Premier League champions, bagging a goal on his debut against East Stirlingshire on Friday evening.

While nine appears to be a large number of new signings, that tally was somewhat needed given eight players have left Ibrox at the same time.

And Warburton admits because of so many departing he would like to see one or two more arrive, with Frank McParland working tirelessly to get deals over the line.

If that shouldn’t happen though, he says is confident that the squad is in good shape to challenge Celtic for the title.

“There is a lot of work going on. Frank and his team are working tirelessly and hopefully we can get one over the line,” he told the Daily Mail.

“There are a lot of people after the same players and we hope we can beat them to it. But if we can't get something sorted, the squad as it is looks in good shape.”

It now remains to be seen if Rangers can secure any more signings before the end of the transfer window.

They have recruited well so far, and big name signings such as Niko Kranjcar and Joey Barton are not to be sniffed at in any regard.

They are still short in a couple of areas though, namely when it comes to strikers and centre backs, and perhaps those will be the two areas that they now look to improve.
