Gerrard makes 'personal plea' to Ross Wilson as Rangers target Southampton man

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has made a “personal plea” to Ross Wilson to quit Southampton and head to Ibrox to replace Mark Allen as director of football, according to a report.

According to the Daily Record, the Gers boss has personally spoken with Wilson with the pair holding a “lengthy conversation” as the Gers return to the man who was their original target when they initially looked to appoint a director of football in 2017.

Wilson has had spells with Falkirk, Huddersfield Town and Watford before being appointed at St. Mary’s and his name immediately cropped up when Allen left last month.

Talks are reported to be continuing over the weekend with Wilson said to be seriously considering making the move to Ibrox and helping the Light Blues reach that next level.

If Gerrard has got involved, as reported, then it’s clear that he’s happy with Wilson’s potential appointment and hopefully, the Gers can get it over the line and get an announcement made soon.

With Gerrard’s side facing Hamilton tomorrow in the final game before the upcoming international break, it wouldn’t be a surprise if something happens in the next few days.

The Falkirk-born recruitment chief would be a fantastic appointment and it is interesting that he’s seemingly more open to taking the role on now than he was two years ago when he was initially offered the position by Rangers.
