Mark Warburton: “Rangers are not a hard sell”


Rangers manager Mark Warburton
has carried out a slight u-turn over comments he made after signing up himself

month Warburton admitted the Scottish Championship is a hard sell, when he
addressed the issue of trying to persuade players to join his ranks at Ibrox:

  2. Thats good then and we now expect some quality signings soon then. Unless of course he is meaning that it is not hard to sell to Scottish Championship standard players.
