Rangers reportedly set to announce Ross Wilson as new director of football

Rangers’ latest Ibrox appointment seemingly has the backing of Steven Gerrard.

It appears Rangers have found the man they want to replace Mark Allen as the club’s new director of football. 

Allen left the club last month due to family reasons and Southampton director of football operations Ross Wilson quickly emerged as a potential replacement. 

The Scottish Sun is now reporting that the 35-year-old will indeed become the club’s new director of football on Monday. 

Wilson previously rejected the role two years ago, prior to Allen’s appointment and Steven Gerrard is said to be fully behind the decision to appoint Wilson at Ibrox.

Wilson has previously worked at Falkirk, Huddersfield Town and Watford and the report claims Rangers see his appointment as a ‘massive coup’. 

Wilson has been at Southampton since March 2015, during which time Southampton signed such talents as Virgil van Dijk, Nathan Redmond, and Oriol Romeu. 

However, in recent years, Southampton’s recruitment has not been at it’s previous best with the likes of Guido Carrillo, Wesley Hoedt and Sofiane Boufal expensive errors. 

Rangers fans will just be hoping Wilson can help the club recruit the players needed to finally loosen Celtic’s grasp on Scottish football.
