The report reveals that Mulholland insists it would be “huge” for both the Ibrox youngsters and Scottish football as a whole, following in the footsteps of countries like Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, where big sides like Real Madrid and Barcelona have B teams in the lower tiers.

Wilson is heavily involved in supporting the idea, lobbying for “permanent involvement in the senior set-up”, says the report.
