A very strange situation has emerged from Rangers this Friday evening as they confirmed the resignation of manager Mark Warburton... Only for the manager to then claim that he has not resigned and knows nothing about the statement.

Reports from the likes of Sky Sports and the BBC claimed that Rangers had parted ways with Warburton and his assistant, as well as the club's director of football, on Friday, and then the official club statement appeared to confirm this news:

But then came news that this was a surprise to the very man who was reported to have handed in his notice of resignation.

So what the hell is going on? We don't exactly know.

Update: According to Scottish website TalkingBaws.com, Mark Warburton handed in his resignation on Monday, but it was rejected by the board. They then changed their minds and announced it on Friday night, without informing Warburton.

We understand that the Englishman handed in his resignation to the club on Monday, but it was rejected at first.

However, that changed tonight and we can exclusively reveal that Rangers accepted it on Friday evening and announced the news on their official website before telling their manager first.

And that explains why the Gers manager has publicly stated that he knows nothing about the resignation.

At the time of writing, there is nothing on Rangers' website about Warburton's resignation, and the statement tweeted leads to a page that no longer exists.

In the meantime, social media is losing the run of itself amidst the confusion.
