Rangers’ recent rather dismal Europa League exit has been lamented both often and loudly by the supporters who frequent the Transfer Tavern in their droves.
Indeed, Pedro Caixinha’s first full season in charge of the Gers got off to the worst possible start over in Luxemburg, despite a huge overhaul at Ibrox over the course of the summer thus far. So, at least reports from the Scottish Sun have cheered our local Light Blues up somewhat.
They claim key defender Danny Wilson has resumed to training after over two months out, following a knee injury. The 25-year-old limped off against Glasgow rivals Patrick Thistle way back in early May, though can now train with the rest of the first-team squad in the build-up to the new SPFL campaign.
Wilson now faces competition from the likes of Portuguese defenders Fábio Cardoso and Bruno Alves in central defence, with Caixinha bringing in his compatriots to strengthen his squad for next term. Still, a popular figure amongst our drinkers, the former Liverpool youngster will surely have a big part to play as the club look to close the gap on bitter rivals Celtic.
Indeed, he even lined up with Alves at the club’s training centre, with our punters dreaming about a potentially solid backline at last.
