Rangers must ignore reported interest in 26-yr-old and tie him down on a long-term deal
Rangers defender Danny Wilson could be set for a move to Major League Soccer, according to a report, but the Gers should ignore any interest in the defender and tie him down on a long-term deal.
According to the Daily Record, Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City are both interested in taking the 26-year-old across the Atlantic ahead of the MLS season kicking off in March.
Since coming back into the side following Pedro Caixinha’s sacking in October, Wilson has been one of Rangers’ best players and with his contract running down the Gers should get him secured for at least the next two or three years.
Wilson often takes the brunt of stick – sometimes deservedly so – but has shown regularly this season that he is a good defender and more than capable in the Scottish Premiership.
The reported interest from the United States is likely nothing more than a rumour – although Wilson would be more than able to adapt comfortably to MLS – but the Gers really have to sort Wilson’s future out one way or another before too long.
While it might have seemed a crazy idea 12 months ago, it is probably fair to say that Wilson is Murty’s best option in central defence right now and a new deal for the former Liverpool defender should be a priority for the Ibrox side.
