​Rangers boss dismisses link with former Arsenal forward van Persie

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has laughed off reports linking Rangers with Robin van Persie.

Claims that the Ibrox club were ready to make a move for the 32 year old former Arsenal and Manchester United star were prominent across social media on Wednesday night.

"I wonder what the first question will be," the Englishman said as he sat down ahead of his weekly press conference.

"I have no idea where the rumour has emanated from. I woke up to a barrage of texts and missed calls, with apparently the deal done.

"Everybody knew about it apart from the people at Rangers Football Club.

"Out of our pay league I think is a fair comment.

"He's an unbelievably talented player but absolutely nothing in it whatsoever. I'm bemused to hear some of the stories, including betting being suspended.

"There is no truth in the story whatsoever."
