Former Nottingham Forest and Rangers manager Mark Warburton has emerged as a contender to take over from Mick McCarthy at Ipswich Town this summer, according to respected journalist Alan Nixon.
Warburton, who was relieved of his duties at Forest after a hapless run of form almost led the club to relegation last season and into a similar situation this time around, has emerged as a contender for the job at Portman Road alongside Steve McClaren, who still remains the favourite with many sources.
Ipswich will be hoping to land a new manager early in the summer with McCarthy moving on, and will know that both Warburton and McClaren fit the bill of someone who will not command a massive fee and will be happy to work with younger players and on a small budget.
Warburton made his name as manager of Brentford, before moving north of the border to Rangers, where enjoyed success and guided the club back to the Scottish Premier League. His time at Forest began well enough, but his methods soon became tiresome to many at the City Ground, and he was replaced by Aitor Karanka midway through this season.
Ipswich fans, what do you make of this? Would you take Warburton? Let us know in the comments!
