Who will be the next Rangers boss, according to the bookies?
As for Warburton, he today received the backing of Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers to land a top job elsewhere.
"Mark will get a really good job. He’s an outstanding coach and a good man. He’s got good values. He is a good fella with good morals. He has many different experiences other than football,” Rodgers said.
“He did a brilliant job for me in the short time I was at Watford. A conscientious guy who wants players to develop. A lot of the work which went on behind the scenes will have gone unnoticed at Rangers but his directive and passion was definitely for Rangers and he absolutely loved it.
“I can’t help but feel disappointed for him and Davie (Weir) and Frank (McParland). I remember after the Celtic-Rangers game at Hampden, not that long ago, when everyone was lording about the work Mark had done.”
