Rangers insider claims there's "no truth" in high-profile international links

A leading Rangers insider has rubbished links to an Israeli international claiming there is “no truth” in the reports which first popped up in the nation’s own sporting press.

Rangers were linked with a move for Dolev Haziza, 25, through Maariv.co.il which claimed the Maccabi Haifa star’s agent had links to Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson.

But leading Rangers fans media and club insider Heart & Hand have rubbished these links via Twitter claiming that Ross Wilson has had “no previous dealings” with the player’s agent.

That original feature discusses the player’s injury history and his role in Maccabi Haifa’s rise to the top of Israeli Premier League, which includes a player of the month award for January.

It talks about Haziza’s early career and his development this season, the midfielder’s return of seven goals and five assists from midfield in 23 games admirable no matter the level.

Those links to Wilson also appear to concern the Rangers sporting director’s history with Southampton, who, according to the article, signed numerous youth players linked to Haziza’s agent Adam Kidan.

The story linking Rangers to the on-form Israeli international has been repeated across the Scottish sports press but this isn’t the first time Heart & Hand have sought to clamp down on false reports.

The reputable Rangers insider also moved quickly to rubbish three transfer reports over the January window which turned out to be false.
