Head coach of Rangers Mark Warburton has hailed the performance of former Arsenal player Philippe Senderos.

The manager is still on the look-out for a central defender to add this summer before the transfer window closes, but appreciated the effort of Senderos.

Senderos who started with Servette, impressed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger then moved to England to play. He also spent time at AC Milan before returning to England. He played at Everton and Fulham, but returned to Spain to feature for Valencia. His CV includes being in action for Aston Villa and Grasshoppers.

The coaching staff seem to be impressed with Senderos’ showing during training with the team. Coach Warburton told Rangers TV: “He’s one of the people we are looking at. Ther’s no doubt Philippe’s CV is very high quality, you don’t play at the clubs he has played at for as long as he has without having that quality there. All credit to his fitness, he’s dealt with the physical demands and fitted really well into the group.”

Warburton added Joe Garner from Preston recently, ahead of the game against Motherwell at Ibrox. He confirmed the deal, but added that he was open to adding up to four defenders. He explained that there were five defenders in the last term, so he needs cover in case of injuries and suspension. He reiterated his dream of having a stronger squad, with back-ups for each position. He said the aim of the current management was to cover every position with quality subs to be able to get better season after season.

Graeme Murty, 41, will be supervising the training and development of the Under 20 team. The former Scotland and Reading defender said his aim was to develop the next set of first teamers for the club. He claimed he was offering everything, even time with his child, to get the best from the players. Murty was also interviewed by Rangers TV.
