Warburton had come under real pressure in recent weeks following a torrid run of form, during which Rangers had been spanked 4-1 by rivals Hearts.
Last weekend's disappointing 1-1 draw with Ross County meant the Gers had only won one of their last five Scottish Premier League matches, leaving the club an alarming 27 points behind league leaders, and fierce rivals, Celtic.
Warburton was due to take charge of Rangers' Scottish Cup game against Morton on Sunday, but has decided to quit Ibrox with immediate effect.
Warburton's assistant David Weird and head of recruitment Frank McParland have also left their posts.
Rangers have revealed that Under-20s coach Graeme Murty has been placed in interim charge of the first-team - keep up-to-date with all the action here: Next Rangers Manager Market.
