Report: Rangers's Ross Wilson wants Graeme Mathie from Hibernian
According to a report from The Scottish Sun, Rangers’s new sporting director Ross Wilson is keen on approaching Hibernian head of recruitment Graeme Mathie.
Wilson took up his post at Ibrox after plenty of speculation about his future. And it appears that he is wasting little time in trying to make significant changes behind the scenes.
The Scottish Sun suggests that Wilson is interested in bringing Mathie to the Gers. The 36-year-old is currently at Easter Road where he is the club’s head of recruitment.
With Hibs, he has worked alongside a number of managers, including Neil Lennon. He has also previously worked at Celtic as a scout.
Rangers have a good record in the transfer market since Steven Gerrard’s arrival. James Tavernier was the only player to start the Gers’s stunning 5-0 win against Hamilton before the international break to have signed before Gerrard’s arrival.
There have been some errors. Eros Grezda is arguably the biggest example. But the club have generally set a high bar.
That has put the pressure on Wilson and the staff that he brings in. They will be expected to make the kind of signings that take Rangers closer to that next league title, while also making the Light Blues better equipped to handle the demands in Europe.
