Mark Warburton has admitted that he doubts there will be any new signings before the league gets underway, in quotes published by the Herald Scotland.

Rangers have been busy in the transfer market and Warburton is keen to add more before the close of the window.

“I don’t think we’ll get the players we’re looking for before the start of the league season,” said Warburton. “At this stage it’s not about quantity but more about quality.

“If we can find a striking option with the calibre of attributes we don’t currently possess then great, we’ll move. But we have high quality all over the park in every single position.”

The Gers will play their first top flight game in four years when Hamilton arrive at Ibrox on August the 6th and will be eyeing a strong start to their league campaign.

Warburton has been shrewd in the transfer market so far, adding the likes of Joey Barton, Nico Kranjcar, Jordan Rossiter and Joe Dodoo on free transfer deals.

While no new faces are set to arrive in the next week, Rangers fans can be confident that work is on-going behind the scenes and new additions are likely to bolster the squad in the very near future.

Warburton is still looking to add a natural goalscorer and a commanding centre-back to his group and quality players of this type aren’t always easy to secure.

Rangers have already had an exceedingly successful window however, and there’s every chance they pull off another coup or two in the coming weeks.
