Rangers manager Mark Warburton claimed he is still in charge at Ibrox, despite the club issuing a statement accepting his resignation and questioning his commitment to the job.
It said on Twitter that Warburton, his assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving.
But 54-year-old Warburton, who took charge at Ibrox two years ago, said he was unaware of the statement and was consulting lawyers.
Earlier today he led the team in training for Sunday’s Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at home to Greenock Morton. Rangers are currently third in the Premiership, but well adrift of their city rivals and reigning champions Celtic.
Despite Warburton’s bemusement, the club said under-20s coach Graeme Murty will be in charge of the team on Sunday on an interim basis.
Warburton has been criticised for some of his summer signings – including Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter.
The statement has now been taken down from the Rangers website.
