Burnley striker Andre Gray has hailed Rangers duo Mark Warburton and David Weir, telling the Daily Mail he cannot speak highly enough about their man management.

The striker is set to play in the Premier League this season after helping Burnley to the Championship title last time out.

It has been a remarkable rise for him over the last three years, with next week marking 28 months since he was featuring for Luton in non-league football.

He has to thank Warburton, Weir and sporting director Frank McParland for his rise through the leagues, with them deciding to take him to Brentford in 2014 and moulding him into the man he is today.

Gray is more than aware of the influence they had on his career and says he cannot speak highly enough about Warburton and Weir’s man management skills. 

“I can’t speak highly enough about their man-management,” he told the Daily Mail.

“The way they work with everybody is fantastic. They want to develop players and I think you can see that with the amount of players they’ve done that successfully with.”

It now remains to be seen if Warburton can put those man-management skills to use this season as Rangers eye the Scottish Premiership title.

Things did not get off to the best of starts on Saturday as Hamilton Academical held them to a 1-1 draw at Ibrox in their opening game.

The match showed that this season is likely to be a tough one and Warburton will need to be at the top of his game to steer the Gers through.
