Rangers statement: Mark Warburton tried to change terms of deal

Rangers statement goes into some detail on Mark Warburton's departure, but it's still pretty cryptic.

Rangers' statement on the departure of Mark Warburton, David Weir and Frank McParland sheds some light on the manner of the trio's departure, although it perhaps still leaves more questions than answers.

The statement says that the three informed the club that they wished to resign their posts - which would have left Rangers owed significant compensation. The club say they agreed to waive this in order for the three to leave and find additional work, avoiding another 'gardening leave' situation.

However, the statement then also says that a representative for the three "subsequently attempted to alter the terms of what had been agreed in favour of the management team." The board decided to reject that proposal this afternoon.

So, all clear? Well, no. We'd expect some fallout from this in the coming days, although again, it's quite surprising that the papers didn't even get a sniff of this happening tonight, despite it seemingly being agreed much earlier.

There's plenty more to come on this, and of course the search for a manager, so stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for all the latest updates.
