Rangers make enquiry about two Wigan stars


Mark Warburton has made two ‘enquiries’
regarding Wigan Athletic players James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn.
Details of the enquiries are
sparse as yet, but Rangers’ manager is solidly interested in Tavernier, 23,
whose primary position is in defence, and Waghorn, 25, who is a striker.

Rangers’ lack of striking options
is clearly a grave concern, with the quality currently in the squad distinctly
below par, and Waghorn, with 7 in 29 for Wigan
is seen as a possible solution.
Tavernier is currently on loan at
Bristol City and with Warburton successfully securing (now) ex-Wigan defender
Rob Kiernan, evidently sees Tavernier as another useful addition and with
relations with Wigan being positive, may view them as a valuable resource from
which to plunder.
With a glut of trialists at Murray Park
currently under the microscope and three confirmed recruits already this
window, today’s news appears to be evidence of Warburton upping the heat on
nabbing new vital signings.


  1. Waghorn has played 57 games in the last 4 seasons and scored 14 goals in his travels.

    Hardly a star and certainly not prolific…similar profile as the other trialists, been round the houses with a number of clubs, mostly on loan.

    Is this what King meant when he talked about over investment or spending whatever it takes?

    That man just cannot be believed on anything he says.

    Where is he, where is his money?

    • dont worry heard king was in london laast week signing three top players an international midfielder and a winger and a big name striker with 30 caps we will be rockin this season watp in king we trust

    • These players are not coming to compete in the top European leagues. Good enough to achieve our primary objective.

      I trust the current custodians of the club. Be patient. Make judgements over a period of time.

  2. Time for fans to calm down the building of
    club will take more than just going out and
    spending money didnt work for our last manager lets put our
    faith in our new managment team

  3. give the new manager a chance at least he is not bringing players who are not past ther sell by date

    • Things taking shape. The 2 Wigan guys good enough to play at any level in Scotland.
      They are hungry to do well and have the potential to improve. if they sign and we get a few quality loan deals that will be good enough. Remember, there are still many players on the market who will be considering options up until the window closes. We now have the coaching team and ethos required for a successful season.

      Moving in the right direction at last, but it will be a gradual process. This time last year??? Be very wary of the constant snipers and professional parasites who make a living from inciting hatred. You will recognise the posts, constant attempts to undermine Rangers, wild assumptions, Wikipedia quotes, documents that nobody has seen, conversations that they heard about. at the end of the article the begging bowl comes out or the invoice goes out to their paymasters. The unshakable fact, the undeniable truth, is that this club's revival has been fan driven. Supported by several stout allies. The parasites can't undermine loyalty and commitment! We will follow on!
