Mark Warburton shot down all rumours linking him with a move to Wigan this morning.
The Rangers manager may be under pressure from some parts of the club’s support after the team’s poor start to the season, but he’s still highly rated and holds a good reputation back in his homeland.
Gary Caldwell was this week sacked as Wigan manager and that’s led to a number of gaffers – in and out of work – being linked to replace him.
Warburton is included in the early running.
But rumours haven’t been given the chance to breathe as the Rangers manager shot down all talk of leaving for the Latics in his press conference ahead of his side’s clash with Kilmarnock on Saturday.
According to Warburton, he’s bemused by the links and surprised that the story even made it into today’s papers:

So that settles that then – Warburton won’t be leaving Rangers for Wigan.
The English manager was speaking the morning after his side were held to a 1-1 draw by St Johnstone at Ibrox.
Blair Alston had given the visitors an early lead in the game only for Joe Garner to head home an equaliser, but the hosts were unable to really stamp their authority on play and had to settle for what must be seen as a disappointing draw.
