Rangers fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Danny Wilson’s latest comments about his exit from Ibrox.
Wilson joined Colorado Rapids in the USA from Rangers in the January transfer window.
The former Liverpool central defender was out of contract at the Ibrox club at the end of the season.
As reported by The Scottish Sun, the 26-year-old centre-back left Rangers just days after stating his desire to sign a new contract with the Gers.
Wilson has now told The Scottish Sun that he made it clear to the club that he wanted to remain at Rangers, but the Gers’ director of football, Mark Allen, told him that he would not be given a new contract.
The Scotsman was in his second spell at Rangers, having initially started his professional club football career at the Glasgow giants before moving to Liverpool in 2010.
Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Wilson’s comments about his future.
Below are some of the best comments:
Danny Wilson wanted to stay at Rangers, the guy wasn’t even on a big wage. Rangers could have offered him the same wage and he would have stayed. Yet we got rid of our best defender this season and left us with Cardoso and Alves as back up.— (@Allyyy1872) February 13, 2018
I said this in a tweet a few weeks back. Danny Wilson wanted to stay, even on the same money. He wasn’t offered a new contract and his agent was blanked. Rangers let him go. https://t.co/p44ME0a92v— Bob (@SuperShodan) February 13, 2018
Good luck to the lad. Would rather we kept him over bringing in Russell Martin.— Paul Kerr (@KERRZZO) February 12, 2018
If this is true then great! It shows we are moving forward and players who can’t cut it won’t be given new deals.— Lee Watson (@LWatsonova) February 13, 2018
Quite frankly it makes excellent business for Rangers to not offer Danny Wilson a new deal & reinvest the wages saved in giving Tavernier a new deal. McCrorie is a far better defender & prospect anyway— Mr D.Harry (@54Beats44) February 13, 2018
I have no issues with Rangers not wanting to renew Wilson's contract. There is no doubt in my mind that the money can be better utilised for a younger centre back with a sell-on value. https://t.co/Ko5bEAr6Jq— Garry Carmody (@GarryCarmody) February 13, 2018
Danny Wilson wanted to stay and the club didn't keep him but have offered Tav a new improved contract. For me that makes alot of sense.— Rangers Bantz (@RangersBanter17) February 13, 2018
Nobody came in for Alves as he was injured, I think he would of been off if we had a buyer or someone to take on his wages.— Rangers Bantz (@RangersBanter17) February 13, 2018
A few good games doesn't make you anymore entitled to better pay, he had 3 years to prove himself worthy of an improved contract.— Tavernier's Bulldog (@Tavsdug) February 13, 2018
Wilson may have wanted to stay but the fact of the matter is that his deal expired at the end of the season, he rejected a new deal and we got a fee for him— Cal (@MacRitchieCalum) February 13, 2018
Was a better option than Bates, Martin or Cardoso imo. Strange decision not offer him a new deal.— Faceless (@FacelessRanger) February 13, 2018
Mark Allen obviously saw what the rest of us saw and didn’t get sucked in by 1 good performance in 3 ratio. He sees the bigger picture.— Jamie (@jamiecurrie89) February 13, 2018
