Liverpool searching for new coach

Warburton ‘flattered’ by bookies’ odds on Anfield post

Mark WarburtonRangers manager Mark Warburton said he was flattered that bookmakers had installed him at odds of 20-1 to become the next boss of Liverpool.

Warburton’s name has cropped up following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers on Sunday. Former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp remains favourite for the job.

“They are a big club and it’s flattering, but Rangers are also a big club,” said Warburton who joined Rangers in the summer.

He was speaking after being named the Scottish Championship manager of the month for September.

It’s highly unlikely, however, that the Ibrox boss will be making an early exit even though Rangers’ 100% start to the season has attracted attention from down south.

Others in the frame for the Anfield post are Carlo Ancelotti and Frank de Boer.

Warburton, 53, was formerly manager of unfashionable Brentford and in a previous career was a City trader.

Rangers have won all nine matches in the Championship with their only loss being to St Johnstone in the League Cup.
