Rangers manager Mark Warburton says there is no substance to suggestions that Robin van Persie could join the club, as quoted by the club's official Twitter account.

The Gers have added one new forward so far this summer in Joe Dodoo, but the youngster is seen as one for the future, and another striker is still wanted by Warburton.

Warburton does have Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller at his disposal, but fans believe a big-name signing could arrive to bring some more firepower to the side - and a huge name has been linked in recent days.

As noted by the Daily Record, odds were slashed on Robin van Persie making a stunning move to Ibrox, with odds going as short as evens at one stage.

The 32-year-old left Manchester United for Fenerbahce last summer, and has hit 22 goals in 48 games for the Turkish giants, again proving his quality in front of goal.

A former Arsenal hero, Van Persie may fancy a return to Britain - but Rangers boss Warburton is adamant that he won't be arriving at Ibrox.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Warburton was quoted by the club's official Twitter account as saying that whilst Van Persie is 'unbelievably talented', there is no truth in the rumour that he could be joining Rangers this summer.

Warburton added that he is both 'bemused and amused' by the stories, and thinks somebody is laughing at the media furore over the Dutch star's future.
