Insider: Rangers pushing for deal for 26-year-old enforcer after reported development
There is truth in the reports that Danny Wilson could leave Rangers to move to the MLS, according to a club insider.
The Daily Record had reported that the 26-year-old had been offered the chance to continue his career in the United States, with just six months left on his Rangers contract.
Wilson has made 14 Premiership appearances this season, scoring three goals, but has played the last 12 and has been stand-in skipper.
They claimed that Sporting Kansas City were in pole position for his signature, with Colorado Rapids also interested.
EstConsultancy, a Twitter account which is a reliable source of Rangers information, claimed that there were no truth in the rumours but then admitted they had got it wrong.
In a post tweeted on Wednesday morning, EstConsultancy said that there was “truth in the Wilson out reports. Club hopeful of a new deal still.”
Will always admit when we mess up so here goes, there's some truth in the Wilson out reports. Club hopeful of a new deal still.

Football Insider verdict:
So it seems like there is substance to the Danny Wilson stories and he would be a big loss to Rangers if he decided to continue his career in the United States. However, it also seems that Rangers are still hopeful of a new deal so it might come down to what sort of offers he gets. If he gets a substantial offer to go he could sign a pre-contract this January and depart in the summer.
