Where next for Mark Warburton?

Mark Warburton's departure from Ibrox was all very bizarre, with Rangers saying they had accepted his resignation only for the man himself to say he hadn't resigned.

He left with his club - he joined in 2015 from Brentford FC - third in the Premiership and a distance behind champions Celtic. He had a contract until 2019.

According to The Mirror, Warburton had wanted to recruit at least two players, but was not allowed the funds. Having highlighted problems within his team, the management denied him the opportunity to fix them.

Now Nottingham Forest legend Kenny Burns has urged his former side to appoint Mark Warburton as their new boss.

He’s been linked with a move to Championship strugglers Forest at the end of the season, with owner Fawaz Al Hasawi opting to stick with caretaker boss Gary Brazil for now.

But Burns – a Rangers fan who won the European Cup with Forest in 1979 and 1980 – reckons Warburton would be a sensible appointment for his former club.

The former Scotland star told the Scottish Sun: “Mark Warburton would be a good choice for Forest if he’s still out of work come the end of the season, because I’m sure there will be a few clubs after him now he’s left Rangers."
