Sergeant Warburton's Loan-ly Rangers Club - where are they now?

If one thing punctuated Mark Warburton’s ultimately disastrous regime at Ibrox, it was his unforgiveable use of Ibrox and Murray Park as a pseudo-lab for other teams’ youth players while borderline auditioning himself for another gig by showing how ‘well’ he could develop these young players.

As a homage to our fine ex-manager, Ibrox Noise decided to take an irreverent look down Memory Lane and have a look at all the departed loanees Bread Man brought in and ask the pertinent question: ‘where are they now?’

The mess in midfield

If ever a transfer window summed up the aimless direction Mark Warburton is going in, it would be this one. With two new creative midfielders signed up over the past 48 hours, to call the man’s obsession with midfield unnerving would be something of an understatement.

Since this window began, Rangers have been linked with at least five creative midfielders, two of them confirmed as joining up at the Marble Staircase, while the likes of Jota and Hepburn Murphy have gone colder.

And many fans are questioning what Warburton’s signing policy actually is as a result, with an increasing level of exasperation and frustration over the continued targeting of not only creative midfielders, but apparently only loan deals for them too.

Just why do Rangers want so many midfielders?

With the absolute glut of signing targets emerging in the past week or so, the vast majority of players Rangers have been linked to are midfielders. From Joey Barton to Niko Kranjcar, from Jordan Rossiter to Alex Pritchard, from Matthew Knox to you name it, Mark Warburton has really gone quite postal when it comes to midfield talent.

Sure, Rangers are also linked with quite a few forwards too; Danny Graham, Jason Cummings and Danny Ings have all been mentioned in the Ibrox breath as well, but it is undeniably midfield which has seen the most activity, which is ironic as it was already arguably the strongest area of the team.
