Warburton reveals Rangers transfer plan after promotion

Glasgow Rangers manager Mark Warburton has revealed that the club will look to sign four or five players this summer after confirming their promotion back to the Scottish top tier.

The Ibrox outfit beat Dumbarton 1-0 at home on Monday night to take The Championship title, with James Tavernier scoring the decisive goal just after half-time.

Promotion back to the pinnacle of domestic football has been a long process for the Glasgow giants, who have had to work their way back after being demoted to the lower reaches of the Scottish game.

Rangers have had issues with player recruitment and finances in the past and as such they will need to be stringent in their spending to avoid another crisis at the club.

However, Warburton has stated that he will need to upgrade his playing squad for the Ibrox side to be competitive back in the big time in 2016-17.

“It’s a good group of players, we’ll add to it in the summer and the work has begun on that front,” he told STV.

“If we can add the right recruitment, four or five players, we’ll be in a good place.”

The renewal of the Old Form rivalry between Rangers and Celtic will be a mouth-watering proposition next season.
