Rangers defender Aidan Wilson’s loan deal is set to expire this coming Monday.

Still only 19, the young defender made his SPL debut for Rangers back in May 2017 in a 3-1 defeat to Aberdeen. He started that game alongside David Bates at centre-back.

However, since then, he has found first team opportunities hard to come by.

As a result, he joined Forfar Athletic in August, on a loan until the end of December.

Wilson had difficult spell at Scottish Championship side Dumbarton last season. He made just four appearances and picked up a red and two yellow cards.

 

Therefore, perhaps a move to the third tier this time round, was considered preferable for his long-term development.

He featured nine times for Forfar, helping his adopted side to three consecutive clean sheets between August and September.

However, his last appearance came in a 4-0 defeat at home to East Fife on 6th October.

A long-term injury has sidelined the youngster since then, halting the momentum he had only just begun to build up.

As yet, there has been no official communication from Rangers concerning the player’s situation. Yet, with his initial deal with the Loons running out in a matter of days, his return is likely to be imminent.

Due to those ongoing injury concerns, it is uncertain when he will be available again for first team selection.
