Rangers trio set to continue dispute following controversy – report

By Matt Farr

Mark Warburton is expected to continue his legal fight against Rangers for his controversial dismissal, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claim that the ex-Rangers chief will continue to pursue his case against his former employers, despite his new role as Nottingham Forest manager.

The 54-year-old replaced Gary Brazil as manager at the Championship club on Tuesday morning, having wasted little time on the sidelines following his dismissal from Ibrox last month.

But he, alongside new Forest colleagues Frank McParland and David Weir, were cast aside by the Scottish giants in acrimonious circumstances, and are not willing to let it slide.

Rangers chiefs had claimed that they had accepted their resignations ahead of the Scottish cup clash with Morton, but the trio reiterated they had not quit their posts.

It was later confirmed that Warburton and his associates would be pressing their case for compensation, worth £1million, for their sudden Ibrox axe.

But the League Managers Association (LMA) has been instructed to continue their bid to win compensation from Rangers on behalf of the new Nottingham Forest trio.

Warburton is expected to take charge of Nottingham Forest for the very first time for their east Midlands rival clash with Derby on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Weir will join him on the touchline as his assistant; with McParland stepping up from head of recruitment at Rangers to the director of football at Forest.
