Rangers are reportedly set to bring Ross Wilson to Ibrox.
Rangers moved to the top of the Scottish Premiership this afternoon after hammering Hamilton Academical 5-0 at Ibrox – and more good news could be coming.
Jermain Defoe’s hat-trick and goals from Connor Goldson and Borna Barisic sealed a thumping win for Rangers, who immediately benefited from Celtic’s 2-0 defeat at Livingston.
Steven Gerrard will hope to remain there, and the club’s search for a new director of football could be reaching a positive conclusion, with Rangers potentially nearing a deal.
Southampton’s director of football operations Ross Wilson was Rangers’ top target for the role when it became available in 2017, but he turned the job down, leaving the Gers to land Mark Allen instead.
Allen has now left the job, and Rangers appear to be closing in on the Scot, with the Daily Mail reporting that Wilson is set to take the Ibrox job in the coming days.
That’s a major coup for Rangers if they can get the deal over the line, and it seems to have impressed Alfredo Morelos’s former agent too.
Jonne Lindblom, who recently gave up life as an agent for Morelos’s representation World in Motion in order to become sporting director of KuPS in Finland, took to Twitter over the weekend to react to the rumour about Wilson.
Lindblom branded the move a ‘brilliant appointment’ for Rangers, and whilst he may no longer be representing Morelos as of this month, he is seemingly a huge fan of the man who could decide Morelos’s future at Rangers.
