Rangers manager Mark Warburton admitted to being honoured that bookmakers are offering odds of 20-1 on him becoming the next boss of Liverpool.

The Anfield club are seeking to replace sacked manager Brendan Rodgers.

"They are a big club and it's flattering, but Rangers are also a big club," said the Scottish Championship manager of the month for September.

Martyn Waghorn, who has scored 14 goals for Rangers this term, was named Championship player of the month.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp is favourite to land the Liverpool job, with Carlo Ancelotti and Frank de Boer also being linked with the post.

Warburton said he was "very committed to Rangers", adding: ''We're focused here, we know what the targets are. We are a quarter of the way through the season and so far so good."

Waghorn praised the impact Warburton has had on him and the team.

"He's brilliant, he's a real man-manager. He talks to you individually and as a team," said the 25-year-old, who was signed from Wigan in the summer.

"Since I've come here it's been a real learning curve to me how he approaches football. I'm very grateful to work with him because the detail he goes into at training, with all the drills, is fantastic, it's all geared to each game.

"I'm loving every day and it's a joy to come to training. I'd love him to stay here and I think Rangers will benefit from having him for years to come."

Warburton, 53, in his first season in charge at Ibrox, said his award was "all about the team".

They have exceeded expectations. They are hungry and committed," he added.

Rangers have won all nine matches to date in the Championship.

In September, they secured wins over Raith Rovers, Livingston, Dumbarton and Morton, but lost 3-1 at Ibrox to St Johnstone in the League Cup.
