Rangers announce manager Mark Warburton has resigned

Mark Warburton wants to see his Rangers side bounce back in the Cup this weekend

There was no sign of Warburton at the club's training ground on Saturday morning despite reports the former Brentford manager would show for work.

Asked if Rangers had underperformed as a squad this season - the Light Blues are 27 points behind Ladbrokes Premiership leaders Celtic - Waghorn concurred and claimed: "There has been a lot of uncertainty at times".

McLeish is a leading contender to step in, with directors considering an interim appointment until the end of the season.

McLeish was at Ibrox yesterday to take in the action against Morton and assist with the Scottish Cup quarter-final draw where he handed Rangers a home draw against either Dunfermline or Hamilton Accies.

McLeish confirmed he had yet to be contacted by his former employers.

"In my four years as manager, we have consistently got top six so it is nice that people recognise that by linking you with the job but it is pure speculation, that's all it is and there is nothing I can do about speculation".

"I am a Rangers man, so you obviously have to keep that in consideration", he added.

"I need to wait and see if Rangers want me first".

"It just takes belief, it takes a little bit of luck too - I think you saw that today", Murty told Sky Sports News.

'The fact I'm here is a coincidence'.

Scottish Championship high-flyers Greenock Morton play Rangers in Ibrox on Sunday.

"You called me a couple of weeks ago to come and do this game and I then find there's been some events happening at Ibrox the last couple of days". At the moment there's nothing I can update you on.

"It's a long time that I have [been able to have] a break because when I was 14 I started to play for Ajax and when I quit my career I started directly to be a coach, first youth and then as a head coach".
