Former Brentford boss Mark Warburton responds to Rangers link on talkSPORT

first_imgMark Warburton has told talkSPORT he is no closer to making a return to management despite being heavily backed to take charge of Glasgow Rangers.The 52-year-old, who forged an impressive reputation at Brentford before leaving the Bees by mutual consent at the end of last season, is believed to be the Ibrox club’s first choice to become their next boss and bookmakers have suspended betting on him taking the job.Warburton is not denying he has held talks with the Scottish Championship side, but the Englishman insists he, and his trusted assistant David Weir, have yet to receive any formal offers.Speaking on the Sports Bar on Tuesday night, he said: “I’ve heard lots of rumours but me David have had a couple of informal chats with a couple of clubs and if all goes well they go forward from there, but nothing more than that right now.”Warburton admits he is keen to take on a new role as soon as possible in order to plan for next season, but insists he will only join a club which shares his philosophy. “A lot of people say to take three or four months out, but that is not my style. I like working, I like being busy, I like knowing what I am doing and I will hopefully get offered the right opportunity,” he continued“Pre-season is vitally important. It is a chance when coaches and managers can bond with the players, get their ideas across, and you actually get time to work with them.“This is the ideal time now and sooner, rather than later it is important for clubs to get their choice in place.“You have to look at the club and hope the parties have the same chemistry. Do you get on, do your philosophies align, do you have the same ideas about the game and the same targets and expectations? If that fits into place, then I think you are in a good place.”last_img
