26-year-old Rangers defender Danny Wilson is set for a medical ahead of his move to MLS side Colorado Rapids, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claim that Wilson will take his medical today ahead of a switch to the States in what has been a fairly rapid turnaround.

Wilson has been a solid part of Graeme Murty’s plans for the past few months and Wilson was stand-in skipper.

He was omitted from the Rangers team that beat Aberdeen 2-0 on Wednesday in a move that seemed to signal reports of his imminent departure were correct.

Wilson is out of contract in the summer and with no extension agreed he has decided that his future lies across the Atlantic, for a team that notes Arsenal shareholder Stan Kroenke as one of its backers.

Football Insider verdict:

Rangers fans won’t be overly disappointed at the departure of Wilson, as Graeme Murty has done a great job of strengthening the side this January. He will be a loss but you can’t blame him for taking what must be a fairly lucrative offer from the MLS. He is only 26 though and it’s fairly early to move yourself into a footballing wilderness.
