Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson has been sent a reminder over his position as the pressure tells for Dundee United equivalent Tony Ashgar.

The Ibrox side’s recruitment has come in for serious criticism over the last four windows in particular and there are plenty in the support pointing the finger at the ex-Southampton man.

You can add James Sands onto the list of failed singings by Ross Wilson, as the USA international loanee heads back stateside to NYCFC.

Rangers have also slipped further behind Old Firm rivals Celtic in the last 18 months, as the club’s signings fail to have a proper impact on the squad with several laid up on the treatment table.

Combine that with an aging squad, and Ross Wilson allowing several key stars to run down their contracts, and suddenly the management of the Rangers team looks genuinely ineffectual.

Whenever it fails to win the title, then it has been period.

Tony Ashgar steps down from Dundee United

As the grumbles continue amid staunch defences of Wilson from the incumbent Rangers Board, Dundee United sporting director Tony Ashgar has seen the axe fall after four years at Tannadice.

This comes with the club having sacked both Jack Ross and Liam Fox this season, with Jim Goodwin drafted in and the Arabs currently bottom of the Scottish Premiership.

Supporters had also protested Tony Ashgar following the weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Ross County.

“Dundee United can announce Tony Ashgar has stepped down from his role as sporting director,” reads a Dundee Utd statement.

“Following more than four years at the Club, Tony has decided to leave his post to allow the new First Team Manager to be appointed within a revamped structure within the Football Department.”

Whilst Ross Wilson isn’t quite at Tony Ashgar levels, expect the pressure to mount on the Rangers man if he can’t get things right with this broken squad.
