VIDEO: New Rangers Boss Mark Warburton: We Live And Die By The Players We Sign

Mark Warburton insists he’ll move swiftly to strengthen the Rangers squad ahead of next season.

The 52-year-old Englishman – and forer Brentford boss – was unveiled as the new Ibrox manager this afternoon on a three-year deal.

With him he brings former Gers captain Davie Weir back to the club as his assistant manager.

And Warburton says he’s already got his eye on some potential summer signings as he bids to get Rangers back to the top flight in Scottish football by winning promotion from the Championship.

In his first interview, Warburton said: “We live and die by the players we recruit. Recruitment is paramount.

“Time is tight but we have to move quickly and it’s about making good decisions. There’s no point rushing into things that you look back on in six months’ time and say ‘that was a bad choice’.”

Warburton is tasked with Getting the club out of the Scottish Championship this coming season, something that Stuart McCall failed to do as Rangers were beaten 6-1 by Motherwell in the two-legged play-off final.

But Warburton hopes his experience in the lower divisions in England can help him bring in the right players for the job.

He added: “We have some targets. I think any new manager or coach would have his preferred targets, but again they’re not always easy.

“But we certainly have two or three players we’ll be hoping we can bring in.”
