Rangers: Fans delighted with Ross Wilson news

Ross Wilson has been confirmed as the new Rangers Sporting Director after leaving his post at Southampton as announced by the official Rangers website via Twitter.

Wilson had been a target as far back as 2017 when Mark Allen was first appointed but the 36-year-old Scotsman decided the time wasn’t right for a move back north of the border.

During his tenure at Southampton, he has seen the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane leave the club for transfer fees of £75m and £34m respectively.

Mark Allen left abruptly but has been seen as having a successful tenure at the Ibrox club by not only improving the quality of the first-team squad but also the academy, women’s squad, the Hummel Training Centre and Ibrox.

Rangers fans took to Twitter to express their delight at what is seen by some as a coup in welcoming Wilson to the club.
