An interesting point raised this morning over Warburton's signings. Where would Rangers be just now if the board had backed him enough to acquire his first choice additions? I don't think he got one first choice signing. Even Barton wasn't the first name on the list for the ill fated marquee signature. Senderos, Barton, Hill, Garner were all signed after the board failed to acquire the number one target. The guy was slated for his signings but never got who he wanted. Even Tav was second choice to Reece Wabara. I know teams will miss out on players all the time. But to be failed in key positions constantly like with the Diagouraga saga, instead having to go with John Toral on a loan. He didn't stand a chance of competing the way he wanted.

Tav is a much better player than Reece warbra tho so that one work out ok.

Mate warbs wanted and signed the likes of halliday kiernan etc and persisted on playing his favourites even though there was better options on the bench, he also persisted with the same tactics when is clear they were not working. For a manager who constantly said that we would learn from this, ironically he never did learn. He had to go and so did the majority of his signings.

Yes I agree to an extent about his tactics being one dimensional, he himself made it clear when he joined what his philosophy was. The point was a very small margin of his signings were his number one targets. Lucky to get someone in the top 5 of a 10 man shortlist, which is quite frankly appalling. So it is no wonder he couldn't get the winning mentality he knew he required to be long term manager.

If Warburton had been more pragmatic then he might have lasted long enough to find out how much backing he would have been given in a Europa League qualifying campaign. As it turned out he wasn’t and was rightfully moved on IMO. Pedro again was rightfully moved on after a truly shocking semi vs Motherwell, one thing the board cannot be held for is bottling a big (but correct) decision.

Keep Believing!

Missed the point totally again. Warburton obviously deserved the sack because he wasn't winning consistently. He lived and duely died by his signings which did not show the required competitiveness to challenge domestically. Signings of which a small number were actually first on his transfer list.

Barton should have been a first choice signing. given a proper chance and more than 8 games he played he could have been a fantastic signing. but all the numptys from the other side of Glasgow and the press hated him and the fact Warburton played him central defence in the celtic game. I for one was glad to see Warbs and Weir leave and get rid of Forester, Dodoo, Senderos and the rest of the mediocre player he signed
