Rangers manager Mark Warburton has been left gobsmacked by Uwe Rosler being sacked by Leeds United, something he feels is part of a worrying trend which he finds "incredible".

Rosler was shown the door by the Whites on Monday morning following a string of poor results in the Championship, culminating in a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on Saturday.

The German, who Warburton worked with at Brentford, led Leeds for eleven league games, picking up eleven points, something which sees the Whites sitting a lowly 18th in the standings.

Warburton feels such a short span of time is not enough to judge a manager by and has sympathised with Rosler.

"I know Uwe very well and he's a passionate football man and he's played ten games of football I believe; ten games of football and he's gone", the Rangers boss said at a press conference.


"I'm sure more managers will follow in the next few weeks and you have to wonder what the game is coming to.

"What other profession gives people this amount of time to try and do a good job.

"I find it quite incredible."

Warburton was linked with the Leeds job over the summer before he signed up with Scottish giants Rangers.

The Englishman currently has Rangers sitting top of the Scottish Championship table with a perfect record of played ten, won ten.

His men are next in action on Tuesday night in the Scottish Challenge Cup against Livingston.
