'Gutted', 'Good riddance' – Rangers fans react as Murty mainstay secures Ibrox exit
Rangers fans have reacted to the news that defender Danny Wilson has joined MLS side Colorado Rapids.
The defender had played pretty much every game since Graeme Murty took over and had been been stand-in skipper recently.
But on Monday night it was confirmed that Wilson had left for the States with his contract running out at Ibrox.

It’s not the first time Wilson has left Ibrox.
The 26-year-old came up through the youth ranks at Rangers before leaving for Liverpool for £2.5million in 2012.
That didn’t work out and after a number of loan moves he arrived back at Rangers on a free transfer from Hearts.
Now, after turning his back on Rangers for the second time, some fans are understandably upset with the enforcer.
However, others wished him the best of luck and pointed out he hadn’t been offered a new contract.
Others joked that he’d be back in Scotland for a third stint before too long.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Rangers fans after the news was made official:

It makes financial sense it makes zero sense career wise under murty he’s been one of the first names on the team sheet and started to look like the player we all thought he could be years ago

Could have been your time to step up and make that jersey yours, think it’s a daft decision but all the best to you Danny

Good riddance, not up for the fight and he hasn't got the heart to be successful at a big club. Wont be missed and that says it all. Could have been a Rangers and Scotland great but chose to be a mercenary. We need players to want to be here if we have any chance of catching them
