Sky Sports legend Jeff Stelling has claimed that outgoing Rangers director Ross Wilson could soon be planning a Steven Gerrard reunion with Nottingham Forest.

The iconic Gillette Soccer Saturday host was speaking amid mounting pressure on current Forest manager Steve Cooper, who despite spending a Premier League fortune finds himself in the relegation zone.

After defeat to Steven Gerrard’s former side Liverpool – with the Anfield legend watching on in the stands – Forest are now 19th in the Premier League table.

It is very tight at the bottom of the Premier League however, with Forest only a point from safety and only five points separating the bottom five teams.

Despite this, and with the spectre of relegation lingering over the club, Steven Gerrard has been linked to a Nottingham Forest reunion with Ross Wilson who has just left Rangers to join the Premier League side.

Steven Gerrard linked to Nottingham Forest

Wilson remains highly-rated south of the border and was very complimentary of Steven Gerrard upon his Ibrox exit in 2021, when the former England captain moved to Aston Villa.

Having worked together at Rangers it seems an obvious link to make and Jeff Stelling claims Steven Gerrard has been at the City Ground outfit’s last two matches.

“I’m just going to tell you,” Jeff Stelling said [live on Sky Sports News (5:37 pm, 22/04/23)].

“The mischief makers will just suggest here that Ross Wilson has joined Nottingham Forest, he is their director of football and he was with Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

“Steven Gerrard has now been at Nottingham Forest’s last two games. Make of that what you will but I can’t tell you anything else.”

Rangers fans will have one eye on what happens with Nottingham Forest and Ross Wilson but more pertinently the club’s supporters will be focusing on what happens at Ibrox.

An exciting summer beckons for Rangers and with or without Wilson change was always going to be in the offing as the club look to wrestle back Scottish Premiership dominance.
