Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter to the news that Ross Wilson could be about to join the club as their new Director of Football.
Looks like Rangers are close to announcing Ross Wilson from Southampton as our new Director of Football

Indeed, the rumours have started to spread like wildfire as well, with The Daily Record recently publishing an article suggesting that Steven Gerrard has made a “personal plea” for Wilson to join him and replace Mark Allen.
Wilson, who is currently with Southampton, turned down the opportunity to head to Ibrox two-and-a-half years ago as he was happy with his role at the Premier League outfit, however it is said that he is considering the new approach.
Despite only being 36-years-old, he has a wealth of experience as he has had spells with Falkirk, Huddersfield Town and Watford before joining the Saints.
Indeed, fans on Twitter appear as though they would be happy to see Wilson in the role at Ibrox, with many of them believing it would be an incredible piece of business by Rangers if they were able to convince him to join them.
Here are just some of their reactions…
This would be a terrific appointment by club.
