Mark Warburton catches the eye of Rangersby Jack Kitson / 18 May 2015, 10:29Tweet
Outgoing Brentford boss Mark Warburton will certainly not be short of offers when he leaves Griffin Park at the end of the month. The 52-year-old has enjoyed a staggering impact in the managerial arena since taking charge of the Bees at the end of 2013, but is now set to open up a new chapter following the club's play-off defeat to Middlesbrough.
Warburton took charge of Brentford back in December 2013 following Uwe Rosler's departure to Wigan, and went in to impressively lead his chargers to promotion up to the Championship in May 2014. The momentum overlapped into the 2014/15 campaign, with the Bees securing 5th place on the last day of the season. However, the club were beaten by Middlesbrough in the play-offs, ending their hopes of playing in the Premier League next term.
Warburton has been hotly linked with a move to the likes of Newcastle, QPR and Sunderland, while recent reports have speculated that he is a target for Rangers. The Gers are believed to be keen in luring Warburton up to Scotland, and if rumours are to be believed he is worth a punt at 12/1 (Bet Victor) to be the club's new boss on the first day of next season.
