Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told Alan Stubbs to shut up and mind his own business after being irked by comments from his Hibs counterpart.
Rangers took their goal tally to 19 in five wins under Warburton with a 2-0 triumph at Ayr in the second round of the Petrofac Training Cup last night, but Stubbs earlier appeared to claim the Gers boss had the benefit of spending a lot of money.
Stubbs told Hibs TV: “It’s very easy when you’ve got money to spend to bring in much better players than what was there at the start.”
Warburton said in reply: “Clearly it must be easy managing Real Madrid and Man United then, I guess.
“I would suggest that any manager without the facts keeps his mouth shut and concentrates on his club and not worry about our club. That’s the key point.
“Right now we are very respectful to every other club and manager, and unless you know any facts that I don’t know, concentrate on your own team.
“I know what we have spent and that’s a complete fallacy.”
When asked if the comments were mind games ahead of Hibs’ Ladbrokes Championship clash at Ibrox on Sunday, Warburton said: “I’m not the brightest man in the world but it will take a lot more than that to wind me up.”
