Rangers must tear up centre-back loan agreement after injury blow


Rangers manager Graeme Murty could have a selection headache on his hands when the Gers return to action after the international break with David Bates out and Russell Martin withdrawing from the Scotland squad with a back injury.

Despite being on loan with Championship side Dumbarton, the Gers should consider tearing up the temporary agreement to see 19-year-old central defender Aidan Wilson back at Ibrox, especially if it looks like Martin won’t be fit for the clash with Motherwell on March 31st.

Wilson was thrown into the side at the tail end of last season after impressing for the Under-20’s squad under Murty and was part of the group who travelled to America in January for the Florida Cup.

The defender has made massive strides in the last couple of years and is arguably one of the most improved players in the club’s youth system recently.

The 19-year-old made a handful of appearances last season but yet to be involved competitively this season although looks to have a big future ahead of him.

The Scottish youth international has earned rave reviews from the Gers coaching staff and the defender would arguably be a better option in the starting XI than Fabio Cardoso.

If it does look like Cardoso and Alves will be starting v Motherwell and the Gers can get him out of his loan deal with Dumbarton then they should do everything to get him back to Ibrox and into the starting XI.

In other Rangers news, fans have demanded that the club signs this Old Firm scourge in the summer, claiming he is better than Celtic’s Olivier Ntcham.
