Rangers boss Warburton “flattered” by England U21 link but is happy at Ibrox

Date Posted,December 21, 2016

Mark Warburton admits it is flattering to be linked with the England Under-21 post but insists he has unfinished business at Rangers.

Reports suggest the Football Association is keen to see the Ibrox manager take over new England manager Gareth Southgate’s former role leading the Young Lions.

His previous experience working in youth development combined with his commitment to playing attacking football with Gers has fired him into the thoughts of the governing body.

But while Warburton admits he has ambition to one day land England’s top job, he is not ready to return to his homeland just yet.

He said: “It’s very flattering to be linked to a job, especially a job of that stature, but it’s a privilege to be manager here at Rangers.

“We’ve got a big job in hand to do at this club and we’re delighted to be here.

“There has been no discussion (about the FA post) at all.

“(Becoming manager of your national team) has to be (an ambition). Any coach starting out on the rung has to think, ‘How high can I go?’

“What is the dream job? Of course any manager will say (managing their country) is. You’re talking about the highest elite level of management.

“But right now I’ve got a fantastic job here. Davie Weir and I have a job here and we’re looking forward to doing it.”
