Rangers’ Sporting Director Ross Wilson has moved to distance the club from reports linking them with moves for Jordan Ibe and Saido Berahino – and admitted he’s “amazed” how many players are linked with the Light Blues.

The duo have been named as possible targets ahead of the new season and Wilson admitted that “hardly any” of the names mentioned so far have been correct.

With preparations starting for the return to football later this summer, Wilson reassured fans they’ll be doing everything to bring success back to Ibrox in the near future.

“One thing I will say, and I’ve said this since I got here, is I’m always amazed at the amount of names that are linked with Rangers,” Wilson said, speaking to TalkSport.

“There’s more names linked with us than any club I’ve ever been involved in before and hardly any of them are ever right so you can take from that what you will.


“We’ll be working as hard as we possibly can in an ever-changing world, in a difficult world, to make Rangers as successful as we possibly can.


“I think that’s something that’s in all of our character here.”

Rangers have already completed the permanent signing of Ianis Hagi but it seems unlikely that there will be many more following given the financial uncertainty clubs face.

Whoever does arrive at Ibrox will need to hit the ground running however and there won’t be time for them to find their feet and get accustomed to life in Glasgow.
