Liverpool-linked Rory Wilson makes the difference as Rangers U18s beat Celtic

Rangers U18s have rounded off a fantastic week with a 2-1 win over Celtic this afternoon, having already won the Scottish FA Youth Cup in midweek, as Rory Wilson scored the winner for Cameron Campbell’s side.

The Rangers striker has been linked with moves to a host of Premier League sides but hasn’t let that affect his form, scoring at Hampden in the cup final before proving to be the matchwinner again today.

Robbie Ure opened the scoring for Rangers midway through the opening half before the Light Blues conceded an equaliser before the break to go in 1-1.

With the game going from end to end, Wilson showed just how clinical he can be when he scored Rangers’ second of the afternoon to seal a vital win in the CAS title chase.

Wilson has been in fantastic form for Rangers and joins Ibrox teammates Greig Allen and Jacob Pazikas in the Scotland squad for this summer’s Euro U17 Championship in Israel.

With both Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Aston Villa among those touted for moves for Wilson, the teenager will have a huge decision to make over his next move.

Hopefully, he sees the best chance at progressing to first-team football at Ibrox rather than as part of an Academy south of the border.

A likely role in next season’s B team squad might help convince him to stick around a Rangers a while longer and follow the likes of Nathan Patterson, Leon King and ALex Lowry into the first-team.
