Rangers have confirmed that Danny Wilson has secured a transfer move to Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids.
The Light Blues revealed the 26-year-old enforcer’s exit on Monday night via their official Twitter account as well as their website, with Wilson ending his two-and-a-half-year spell at Ibrox after signing on a free transfer from Hearts back in 2015.

The five-cap Scotland international made 15 appearances for the Gers this season, taking his total to 108 outings across his two spells with the club, having graduated from the Ibrox youth ranks before leaving for Liverpool.
His contract was set to expire this summer, and he now links up with the side that finished 10th out of 11th in the MLS’ Western Conference.
Football Insider verdict
Not many would have seen Wilson’s departure coming at the start of the season, but it appears that both player and club were ready to part ways once again this month. He may well turn out to be a big loss for the Gers, considering his experience in the league as well as his personal connections to the club, but at the end of the day the club have allowed him to leave and he has taken that opportunity. Does Graeme Murty have enough bodies at the back to make up for his departure? The recent injury blows will not have helped one bit, and another could leave the first team squad in the lurch. Russell Martin’s arrival will make up for it, but another body certainly would not hurt.
