Rangers to complete next signing with days, Warburton shares transfer update

By Coral Barry

Mark Warburton has revealed a player who has been at Euro 2016 will sign for Rangers this week.

The Gers boss has been busy already in the transfer market, with Jordan Rossiter and Joey Barton already on board, and admitted the summer activity was not yet over.

Warburton wants at least two more additions to his squad before the season starts and is expecting a new arrival this week.

“We hope to bring in one more this week, but no [he wouldn’t fly out to America], he’s been away at the Euros,” said Warburton speaking to the Scottish Sun.

“We’ve brought a few in so far and have two or three more to come so hopefully by the end of this window we will be in good shape.

“We’ve lost eight players. Dom Ball and Gedion Zelalem have gone back so we’ve lost a number of players.

“We hope for a couple more over the next couple of weeks and that should get the job done.

“The team have worked really hard with the board and the boys have come in early. If we get them in quickly it allows us to bed them in and be ready for August 6.”

Rangers have been linked with a move for Lee Hodson, who has returned home to England after Northern Ireland were knocked out of the Euros by Wales on Saturday.

Warburton refused to confirm if Hodson on the verge of a move to the Ibrox, but said it will be another while before the new signing joins the squad with Rangers due to fly out to America for pre-season this week.

In other Rangers transfer news, Jens Lehmann has urged Warburton to move for one of Northern Ireland’s stars in the summer’s Euros.
