Rangers & Celtic, the latest News. . .

Warburton can revolutionise Rangers and spark Scottish football
http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/3933041.jpg?display=1&htype=0&type=mc3

 MARK WARBURTON will lead Rangers to the top of Scottish football within three years – and could revolutionise our game in the process. That was the prediction from Justin Andrews, one of Warburton’s partners on the NextGen series, today as he forecasts a bright Light Blue future.

Warburton was appointed Rangers boss last week as the Ibrox board moved to lure the highly-rated coach and sought-after manager to the club to spearhead the Gers rebuilding job this summer. The 52-year-old was the brains behind the NextGen series alongside Andrews and Brentford chairman Matthew Benham before being given his big break at the Bees. Warburton has a huge task on his hands to return Rangers to their former glories, but sports producer Andrews has high hopes for his friend at Ibrox.

Celtic star GMS says Stjarnan ties are BIGGER than Inter Milan
http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/3930276.jpg?htype=0&display=1&type=mc3

Stjarnan double-header is more important than last season's clashes with Italian giants Inter Milan

 GARY Mackay-Steven today warned his Celtic team-mates that Champions League opponents FC Stjarnan of Iceland will be no pushovers. The midfielder described the upcoming double-header as even BIGGER than the Europa League Round of 32 clash against Inter Milan last season.

And while Celtic are heavy favourites to get through this tie, the fact Stjarnan are well into their domestic season should benefit them, even if only slightly. The champions reported back for fitness tests yesterday and Ronny Deila will ensure that his squad are up and running before the second-round, first-leg match in Glasgow on July 14 or 15. But Mackay-Steven urged caution to those who consider this to be any kind of walkover.

He said: "It’s definitely going to be a big task. There are no easy games, although we’ve got a little bit of knowledge of them after they played Motherwell last year. "They obviously beat them. The games were close, but it’s not going to be easy, for sure. They will be in the middle of their season as well.

Building from the back is best for Rangers if 
Mark Warburton wants his team to play free-flowing football

http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/3930169.jpg?display=1&htype=0&type=mc3


MARK Warburton has made a good start to his bid to build an exciting Rangers team fans want to flock back to Ibrox to see – by signing two centre backs. That was the claim by former Gers defender and captain Craig Moore today as he praised the quickfire captures of Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson.

Warburton, the former Brentford boss who was appointed last week, brought in ex-Hearts captain Wilson on Tuesday on a free transfer. He then landed former Republic of Ireland Under-21 cap Kiernan, who he worked with at Watford, from Wigan later the same day. The new Light Blues gaffer’s team had a reputation for playing attacking and entertaining football during his time in charge at Griffin Park.

And he vowed that Rangers would produce a style of play which will encourage supporters to attend games in large numbers after he was unveiled. The Glasgow giants have, along with their Old Firm rivals Celtic, made enquiries about skilful central midfielder Scott Allan as they prepare for the 2015/16 season.

Scottish football urged to bring in spending controls - and stop more clubs suffering financial meltdown
http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/3939646.jpg?display=1&htype=0&type=mc3

Rangers have been dogged by financial difficulties in the last few years as a result of mismanagement at Ibrox.

SCOTTISH football can avoid major clubs like Hearts and Rangers ever dropping out of the Premiership again in the future – by introducing a revolutionary new salary cap.

That was the message from former Gers captain Craig Moore this week as he lamented the damaging loss of the Ibrox club from the top flight. Our entire national game has suffered badly as a direct result of the Ibrox club’s well-documented financial meltdown three years ago.

Hearts being relegated to the Championship last year after being put into administration exacerbated what was an already difficult situation.Average attendances in the Premiership have fallen dramatically from 13,861 during the 2011/12 campaign to just 8,865 last season.

Money banked from advertising, broadcasting and sponsorship has also diminished as a result of Hearts, Hibs and Rangers playing in the second tier. Moore is based back in his native Australia now and was this week appointed Football Operations Manager at A-League club Brisbane Roar.

However, he still follows the fortunes of the club he spent a total of 12 years at during the Nine-In-A-Row, Dick Advocaat and Alex McLeish eras. And he keeps in contact with many of his old Light Blues team-mates – including Barry Ferguson and Bob Malcolm at Clyde, Derek McInnes at Aberdeen and Billy Dodds at Ross County.

Mark Warburton poised to strengthen his Rangers squad by
securing services of Wigan duo

http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/4021397.jpg?display=1&htype=0&type=mc3

MARK Warburton is set to strengthen his Rangers squad further today ahead of his first competitive match in charge by signing Wigan Athletic duo James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn. Warburton is keen to bring in both Tavernier, a right-back who spent last season on loan at Bristol City in League One in England, and Waghorn, a former England Under-21 striker.

Action replay: Stuart Armstrong tells Celtic to aim for repeat of 2-0 scoreline against Stjarnan in Champions League clash
http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/4021600.jpg?htype=0&display=1&type=mc3

Stuart Armstrong believes Celtic need to go to Iceland this week with the aim of mirroring the 2-0 scoreline from the first leg. Goals from Dedryck Boyata and Stefan Johansen have given Celtic a solid cushion going into the second leg of their Uefa second qualifying round against the Icelandic champions.

But Armstrong is mindful of the fact the game is simply poised at the half-way mark. The Hoops will face a trip to either Azerbaijan or Montenegro should they prevail against FC Stjarnan on Wednesday evening. However, Ronny Deila has banished all talk of the next round until business is taken care of against the Icelandic champions.

Mark Warburton insists every day must be a
schoolday at new-look Rangers

http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/3910130.jpg?htype=0&display=1&type=mc3

RANGERS manager Mark Warburton wants his established first-team faces to have the same hunger for learning as the schoolkids on the first rung of the youth set-up within the culture he is putting in place at Murray Park.

The former Brentford boss has taken a keen interest in the club's academy system since taking over the reins and has made it clear that age will be absolutely no barrier to a place in his side. However, he is determined to eke much more out of the players he is bringing in on permanent transfers at the top of the structure with Andy Halliday and Danny Wilson still only 23 and Rob Kiernan and Wes Foderingham just a year older.

Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson looking ahead after failed SPFL board election bid.
http://martini.eveningtimes.co.uk/resources/images/4024835.jpg?display=1&htype=0&type=mc3


RANGERS managing director Stewart Robertson has predicted the Ibrox club can contribute more to the running of Scottish football in the future despite not being voted onto the SPFL board. Robertson failed to get the backing he needed from the 10 Ladbrokes Championship clubs at the governing body's AGM at Hampden yesterday.

But the former Motherwell director revealed he would put himself forward for election again next year and vowed the Gers will work for the good of Scottish football. He said: “It’s good that we are engaging with these guys again. For a club of Rangers’ size that is important. “We’re here, we’re back, there’s a new Rangers board in place. Hopefully we have a lot to offer. We will try again next year.

“I think fresh voices and fresh ideas are good, but it is a board of good people so you just have to hope that they represent all of the clubs well and do the best for the clubs. “That is what they are there to do and I’m sure they will. There are some really good people who have been re-elected so we look forward to working with them.” Robertson added: “I didn’t have a manifesto as such. I haven’t been involved .
