Rangers boss Mark Warburton admits that he would not be surprised if some of his players are in demand in the January transfer window.
The Glasgow side have been occupying the Scottish Championship summit since the start of the season and while they are on top by virtue of a better goal difference than Hibernian, the Gers are odds-on favourite earn promotion to the top tier.
Most of Warburton’s first choice players have been in scintillating form this term and the Rangers boss believes that it would not be a surprise for him if a few of his men are in demand in the January transfer window.
The Rangers boss stressed thought that they have no need to sell players and they only will allow players to leave on their own terms – but Warburton also expects a few clubs to come knocking on their door for a few of his boys.
He feels a number of clubs will be looking for value in the market in January and believes they could show interest in some of Rangers’ top players because of the tight nature of the winter transfer window.
The Rangers boss told the club’s official website, when asked whether any of his players will leave in January: “I hope not, although I wouldn’t be surprised if they do, and if any player leaves here, they need to leave on our terms.
“You can’t say never, because the fact is the fact is we have players who are performing at a good level, and a club down south will look at what pool offers value.
“As the market moves down south, they will seek value wherever they possibly can – that may be in Scandinavia, it may be in southern Spain, or it may be north of the border.
“But the clubs with the money will always look for value, and we have to be aware of that fact.”
