Warburton distances himself from striker target

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has distanced himself from former Murray Park trialist Vladislas Gutovskis' recent pleas for a deal at Ibrox.

The Latvian striker spent a period at Auchenhowie endeavouring to impress Warburton, and even managed a hat trick during his time in Govan, but the Skonto Riga star is unlikely to find himself making the switch to Scotland.

He said:

“We look at a number of players, if we listened to pleas from all players we’d be in a real state.”

It has been argued Rangers lack a pure goalscorer, a ‘Kris Boyd’ archetype, but with performances and results as good as they currently are it does not seem to be with the same level of urgency as before.

The deal for St Johnstone’s forward Michael O’Halloran remains in limbo with Warbs hoping a deal or maybe two will be complete by the time his side travels to Cappielow to face Morton.
