'Great move' - BBC pundit raves about reported switch for Rangers senior player
BBC Sport Scotland pundit Tam McManus believes joining Colorado Rapids would be a “great move” for Danny Wilson if he completes his reported switch to the Major League Soccer side.
McManus had a spell with the Rapids during the 2008 season before returning to the UK but said Denver was a great place to live and play football.
BBC Sport reports that senior player Wilson has travelled to the United States for a medical with the Western Conference side as they kick-off their pre-season campaign.
McManus claimed MLS is a “rapidly growing league” and admitted he “loved it” in Denver during his time Stateside.
“Great move MLS is a rapidly growing league. Plus what a place to live and play ‘soccer’. Loved it in Denver,” McManus said on his personal Twitter account.

Wilson returned to Ibrox in 2015, five years after leaving to join Liverpool, but is coming to the end of his contract with the Glasgow giants.
The MLS season kicks off in March however Colorado will begin their season in February when the CONCACAF Champions League resumes next month against fellow MLS side Toronto FC.
Wilson has made over 100 appearances for the Gers in his two spells at Ibrox and has lifted the Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup, Scottish Championship and Scottish Challenge Cup with the 54-times Scottish champions.
The defender played no part in the Gers 2-0 win over Aberdeen on Wednesday night as they returned to action after the winter break.
