Former Rangers Manager Mark Warburton is set to be grilled as part of a special Youtube interview.
Warbs is the latest figure in Scottish football to be invited on to Si Ferry’s Open Goal programme.
The English Manager took over at Ibrox in 2015 alongside club legend David Weir. The duo took Rangers back to the top league in their first year in charge.

There’s no doubt Warburton was a fan favourite after that rampant first season. But Warbs struggled upon gaining promotion. He eventually left in controversial circumstances back in February 2017 before joining Nottingham Forest.
The ex-Rangers boss was removed from his post after allegedly tendering a resignation with the club. The former Brentford boss then said he hadn’t resigned at all. It was all a bit of a mess.
Did Warburton have one eye on Forest job?
The Daily Record claimed at the time that Rangers called Warburton’s bluff after a move to Nottingham Forest broke down. Warburton eventually ended up taking over at the City Ground about a month later.
The man with the Magic Hat arrived at Ibrox with great promise and talk of 55. He left with Rangers struggling after being humiliated by a rampant Celtic.
But Warbs didn’t have the best of luck that year. The Englishman had a hard time with injuries to his major signings that promotion season – and then there was Joey Barton.
Not that he believes any of this would have made any difference.
One thing that you can’t take away from Warburton is his influence on Rangers youth set-up, which is still being felt today. Or how well he did in turning it around after McCoist, McDowall and McCall.
Fans still remain a little in the dark over the reasons he left the club.
If this interview is half as revealing as another Open Goal episode with one of Warburton’s former players, it might help clear a few things up.
