Danny Wilson reportedly having Rangers medical, deal within 24 hours

Rangers FC

Former Liverpool defender Danny Wilson, linked with Scottish giants Celtic, is reportedly close to signing for Scottish Championship club Rangers.

Rangers will sign Danny Wilson on a free transfer inside the next 24 hours, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Rangers manager Mark Warburton and his bosses at the club have acted quickly in order to secure the services of the 23-year-old defender.

The centre-back reportedly had offers from England, but the Gers have moved fast in order to convince him to join the Scottish Championship club instead.

According to The Scottish Sun, Wilson will sign a contract with Rangers inside the next 24 hours.

Meanwhile, according to STV, the former Liverpool prospect is having a medical at Rangers ahead of his return to Ibrox.

Wilson is at Rangers’ Murray Park training centre undergoing a medical, according to the report.

Celtic interest

Interestingly, Rangers’ arch-rivals Celtic were also interested in signing Wilson, but they reportedly pulled out of the race.

According to a recent report in The Daily Record, the Scottish Premiership champions are not looking to sign the 23-year-old Scot following the recruitment of Dedryck Boyata from Manchester City.

Good signing for Rangers?

Wilson was one of the better players for Hearts in the recently concluded 2014-15 Scottish Championship campaign.

The former Liverpool centre-back was an important figure in Hearts’ promotion to the Scottish Premiership, and it is interesting that he does not want to play for them next season.

Moving to Rangers, who are in the Championship, may be seen as a step down by many, but for Wilson it represents a chance to return to Ibox and make a name for himself for the Gers.
