Rangers defender Danny Wilson has reportedly been axed by manager Graeme Murty for Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen – and Gers fans are quite happy to back Murty’s decision.

EstConsultancy, a reliable source of Rangers information, claimed on their Twitter account that Wilson, 26, will not be in the starting line-up after reports in the Daily Record that the defender was wanted by clubs in the MLS with both Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City interested.

Wilson has been a mainstay in the starting XI since Graeme Murty succeeded Pedro Caixinha as manager in October after being frozen out by the Portuguese.

Rangers fans were supportive of the decision to axe the defender if he is close to sealing a move after disappointing for much of his second spell at the club.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Wilson has made 15 appearances so far for the Gers this season and is out of contract in the summer.

Manager Graeme Murty has confirmed the club have held talks with all four of the first-team players whose deals are up at the end of the season.

The former Hearts and Liverpool defender rejoined the Gers in 2015 under Mark Warburton and was a mainstay in Warburton’s starting XI.

Russell Martin, Fabio Cardoso, Aidan Wilson and David Bates are all likely replacements for Wilson in the starting XI if the reports Murty has axed him are correct.

In other Rangers news, fans have reacted after this midfield dynamo underwent a medical to complete his switch.
