Warburton hits out at speculation linking him with Fulham job


Rangers manager Mark Warburton has hit out at ‘shockingly incorrect stories’ linking him with the vacant managerial job at Fulham.

The Englishman has faced questions from the media throughout the week, with reports on Wednesday evening claiming that the Ibrox side were aware of interest from the Craven Cottage side and had offered Warburton a more lucrative salary and an increase in his transfer kitty for the January transfer window to prevent him from being lured back down south.

However, the former Brentford manager hit out at the speculation and stated he was ‘going nowhere’ via social media site Twitter.

He said: “Both bemused and frustrated by shockingly incorrect stories from certain media outlets. I am going nowhere and no club has approached me.

“Such stories are incorrect and disrespectful to me, to Rangers and to the supposed interested party which in this case is Fulham. Appalling.

“Why are such stories are released without any sensible investigation? Rangers fans, Rangers as a club and indeed Fulham deserve better.”

Fulham sacked Kit Symons last month and are looking to appoint their fifth manager in just over two years. Former Celtic midfielder Peter Grant is currently caretaker manager at the West London side, currently in 13th place in the English Championship.
