Mark Warburton would 'walk back' to Rangers

Mark Warburton spent almost two years as manager of Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton looks on during the Scottish Premier League match between Rangers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Ibrox Stadium on December 24, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Mark Warburton has admitted to The Record that he would 'walk back' to Rangers if the chance ever came around again.

The 55-year-old manager was sacked by Rangers in February 2017, after leading the Gers to Scottish Premiership promotion for the first time since their demotion in 2012.

It was initially reported that Warburton, along with Frank McParland and David Weir, had resigned from his role at Ibrox, a claim he went on to deny.

The former Brentford and Nottingham Forest boss, who was sacked by the Reds in December, said to The Record: “Do I miss it? Absolutely. You never ever walk away from a club like Rangers. Ever.

“I would walk back because it was a privilege to be there. You won’t ever find anywhere like it."

 

The Englishman is the last Gers boss to record a victory over Celtic, after beating the Hoops - then under Ronny Deila - in a Scottish Cup semi-final on penalties in 2016.

Warburton, who hasn't gone back into management as of yet since leaving the City Ground, may be willing to return to Glasgow, but Rangers fans will hope that the job isn't vacant for a very, very long time.

Steven Gerrard is in the hot seat at Ibrox for now and the legendary midfielder has done a stellar job thus far, with Rangers close to reaching the fourth round of Europa League qualification.

The Gers, who drew 1-1 at Aberdeen last week despite playing with 10 men for most of the game, host St Mirren today in their first home Premiership game of the new season.
