Tuesday saw widespread reporting that Rangers were looking to bring in Newcastle striker Adam Armstrong on loan.

The Glasgow club started their return to the Scottish Premier League with a disappointing 1-1 draw against Hamilton, plus were hit with a potentially much bigger blow when last season’s top scorer Martyn Waghorn was forced off with a hamstring injury in the later stages.

This leaves Rangers with their main attacking threat being Kenny Miller who turns 37 in December.

Tuesday night saw Rangers ease past Peterhead 5-0 in the Scottish League Cup and after the game, Rangers Manager Mark Warburton was quizzed on the Adam Armstrong transfer stories.

Mark Warburton:

“Not for us. He is a very talented player but he is not coming to Rangers.

“If we took everyone in that we are linked to, we would have a squad of 75 players.

“He is a talented player and I know how well he did at Coventry but there is no truth in that rumour.

“Maybe we will have someone in for the weekend, fingers crossed.

“Work is going on so I hope we will make some progress but you saw tonight the strength and depth of the squad, we made six changes and we looked good.”
