Quiz: Which club did Charlton Athletic sign these 24 players from in the 1990s?
Warburton has won promotion from the third tier before and has managed huge clubs like Rangers and Nottingham Forest in the past.
Beale has been assistant manager to Steven Gerrard at Rangers and currently at Aston Villa.
He would bring plenty of connections in terms of contacts in higher places but also signify a change in direction, looking to appoint people with a greater reputation in coaching than management.
Warburton feels like the safer option at this stage.
