In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, former Rangers defender Michael Ball has heaped praised on Ross Wilson.
Wilson was appointed as sporting director at Rangers back in 2019 after leaving Southampton and has spearheaded the Glasgow club’s recruitment drive alongside manager Steven Gerrard.
Under his direction, the Gers have signed the likes of Ianis Hagi and Kemar Roofe, who made significant contributions in their side’s Scottish Premiership title triumph this season.
Will Gerrard lead Rangers to another title?
It is a triumph that has seen Gerrard win a lot of plaudits – and rightly so after Celtic’s dominance of Scottish football was finally brought to an end. However, Ball believes Wilson, who is also rated highly by Kris Boyd, deserves credit too.
Speaking exclusively to TT about the Rangers sporting director, the retired full-back said:
“I think Steven, Ross Wilson, Steven’s backroom staff have been fantastic since they’ve come to the club.
“Ross Wilson, fantastic record under Les Reed at Southampton. He’ll have all the credentials and all the data on the players that Rangers could be able to afford going forward.”
Gerrard and Wilson have already got to work ahead of next season after signing striker Fashion Sakala from KV Oostende.
And with a title to defend, as well as Champions League football, you would expect a few other new names to follow the Zambia international to Ibrox.
