MARK WARBURTON is planning a summer transfer raid on Rangers as he strengthens his squad at Nottingham Forest.
The former Ibrox boss, who departed the club in controversial circumstances last month, is poised to return for two players he took to Glasgow.
Defender James Tavernier and striker Martyn Waghorn are the Gers double-act who are top of his wanted list, according to reports across the border.
Warburton, who saw his new Forest side draw 2-2 against Derby in his debut at the weekend, brought both players from Wigan as he revamped the Ibrox squad following his appointment in the summer of 2015.
He paid £200,000 each for Tavernier and Waghorn as both agreed three-year contracts with the-then Championship outfit.
The 27-year-old hitman claimed 28 goals as Warburton guided the team to the top flight and Huddersfield and Leeds United are also monitoring his progress.
So far, the Englishman has failed to agree a contract extension with the Govan outfit.
Despite failing to find a consistent place in the top side this season, Waghorn is still top scorer with 15 goals.
