Warburton's Rangers aim

Englishman Mark Warburton has been appointed as Rangers' new manager after agreeing a three-year deal, the club have announced.

The former Brentford boss, who will be assisted by ex-Light Blues captain Davie Weir, has been tasked with leading the Scottish Championship side to promotion at the first attempt by Gers chairman Dave King.

The 52-year-old, who takes over from interim boss Stuart McCall, said: "Our aim is to win the division. It won't happen overnight but we'll put as much work as possible into the playing squad.

"I'm very aware of the size of the club and its traditions and we hope to take the club forward," Warburton added.
