An awkward situation is avoided. For now…

11 Jun

Wednesday saw a potentially awkward situation for Brentford fans avoided (one hopes) after former boss Mark Warburton, the odds on favourite to be next manager at Rangers, distanced himself from reports suggesting he was in line to replace Kit Symons at Fulham. Clearly his stock is in demand, having spent the latter part of last season being linked with all manner of positions – even doomed QPR were on the agenda – and nothing has changed since.

My own hopes are that Warbs does end up at Rangers. It would be a fantastic challenge, an incredible long-term opportunity and one which a man of his ability would relish. Additionally, if Mark does find his way to Ibrox it he means he is no longer managing in the Championship.

Frankly, I don’t want him doing his best to scupper our own promotion prospects.
