There have been some interesting comments made by former Rangers centre-back Danny Wilson after he sealed his move from the Light Blues to Colorado Rapids in January.
The 26-year-old said, as reported by the Scottish Sun, that he wanted to sign a new deal at the Ibrox club, and was surprised when director of football Mark Allen decided that he wasn’t going to be offered a new contract.
However, whilst it is understandable that the player is upset about the situation, the Light Blues management did the right thing at the right time in letting Wilson leave.
The centre-back hasn’t had the best of seasons when he has played, he has chipped in with a goal or two but defensively he has looked poor at times.
There is also the sheer number of players that Rangers currently have at centre-back, with David Bates, Russell Martin, Fabio Cardoso, the soon to return Bruno Alves and even Ross McCrorie, who can play in that position.
Most importantly though, the players currently fighting for that position are just better players than Wilson, the likes of Martin, Bates and Alves has shown that they are far more dependable than the former Hearts captain.
If the Gers are able to put the money they saved from Wilson leaving into making Martin’s contract a permanent one, then it’s a very good bit of business.
