Rangers have already had a £4 million bid for Parker rejected and are ready to make another move today. New owner Tony Fernandes has promised to back Warnock to the hilt in the last days of the window. Warnock: “I think we're lucky to be looking at a player like that. It shows how ambitious the chairman [Tony Fernandes] is. He listened to the players I would like to bring in and Joey was one of them. “Joey will be an outstanding player week in, week out. He is a super player and I've always like him. He knows that. I tried to sign him a couple of times, once at Sheffield United. “We've just got down the line and we hope to bring in another four or five before next Wednesday night.”
