Offer made for Rangers senior player to make top-flight switch - report
Rangers defender Danny Wilson is a target for MLS sides Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City and has been handed an offer to move across the Atlantic, according to a report.
The Daily Record claims the two MLS franchises are interested in bringing the in-form Gers central defender to the United States ahead of their season kicking off in March.
Wilson’s Rangers contract is up at the end of the season although it’s unlikely either side would be happy to wait until midway through their own season to bring the player in.
It is understood that the senior player is now considering his future at Ibrox in light of interest from the US top-flight.
The former Liverpool defender has been a mainstay in the side under Graeme Murty and is widely expected to be offered new terms to remain at Ibrox beyond the current season.
Wilson has made 15 appearances this season for the Light Blues, scoring three times and is clear favourite of Murty, who brought him into the first-team after Pedro Caixinha was sacked.
Football Insider verdict:
This one doesn’t really seem to make any sense. Sporting KC have just signed Tommy Smith from Ipswich so will have lost none of their limited spots for non-domestic players as well as having a pretty strong defence already. Colorado are in a fairly similar spot and Wilson’s nationality will likely work against him unless he is to be brought in as one of the league’s ‘Designated Players’ although that seems incredibly unlikely. The defender seems fairly settled at Ibrox and with a new contract likely at Ibrox, Wilson will probably still be a Rangers player on the first day of next season.
