Positive Rangers transfer update provided by Ross Wilson with summer window on horizon

Ross Wilson has provided a positive Rangers transfer update which will be music to the ears of many supporters [Scottish Sun].

Since his appointment as sporting director in late 2019, Wilson has spoken of the importance of player trading to making Rangers’ model sustainable.

Many have accepted that some of the Gers’ biggest assets will soon move on as the club looks to cash in, with former chairman Dave King stating that it’s ‘essential’ that players are sold in the next window in order to balance the books [STV].

However, in his latest update, Wilson has insisted that there’s no panic at Ibrox and crucially, he’s made it clear that there won’t be a major squad breakup.

“We have to be a strong player-trading club,” he said [Scottish Sun]. “That means we have to sell well and buy well. I don’t think it’s inevitable that every player performing well here has to leave Rangers.”

“That is definitely not the case. Joe Aribo came from Charlton Athletic; Glen Kamara from Dundee, a Finnish international; Borna Barisic, a Croatia international came from Osijek.

“We know these players can play in any of the top five leagues. We also know they are really loving life at Rangers. We will make sure we will trade players out at the right time.”

After turning down bids for Alfredo Morelos last summer, the upcoming window could finally be the time that the Gers cash in on their talisman and if so, he will be extremely difficult to replace.

If Rangers can hold on to the three players Wilson mentioned, though, as well as the likes of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and Steven Davis, they will still be in a strong position to defend their title.

An Ibrox winger is one of those who could be moved on for a fee in the summer, with multiple clubs already reportedly making enquiries.
