Rangers manager Mark Warburton says he is bemused to have seen his side linked with Dundee forward Greg Stewart.

The Gers are expected to be active in the winter transfer window, which opens in less than a month, as they prepare for a likely return to the top flight next season.

They have been linked with Stewart, who started his career at Rangers in the youth ranks, but Warburton says he is "amazed" by the story, which has left him "bemused".

Asked about talk he wants Stewart in a press conference, Warburton replied: "Amazed to see such headlines.

"A very talented player, we look at many such players, down south and in Scotland of course. But bemused by some of the headlines", he added.


Warburton was asked whether he is bemused because he is not interested in Stewart and answered: "He's a very talented player.

"But he's not my player and we would never conduct our business that way anyway. But no. He is just one of many players we are apparently linked with."

Stewart has made 18 appearances in all competitions for Dundee so far this season, hitting the back of the net five times and providing his team-mates with five assists.

The former Rangers youngster is locked down on a contract with Dundee until the summer of 2017.
