Rangers: Ibrox side set to lose Rory Wilson from Ibrox

A significant Rangers update has emerged on Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s bid to keep Rory Wilson at Ibrox beyond this summer.

The Rangers starlet has been in phenomenal form this term but sadly, the Gers could be on the verge of a disaster with him.

What’s the talk?

According to The Daily Record, the Rangers academy striker has told the club that he will be leaving Glasgow at the end of the season.

The Gers want him to put pen to paper on professional terms to remain at Ibrox but he will now be heading south of the border and Ross Wilson will need to get as much out of the deal as he can – with the club entitled to training compensation.

That report claims that he has made his mind up and is now set to reunite with Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa in the Premier League next term.

Van Bronckhorst will be livid

This update will surely leave the head coach livid as Wilson is a talented young prospect whose departure will come as a big blow to the club.

Rangers are on the verge of repeating the awful disaster that was Billy Gilmour’s exit from Glasgow back in the summer of 2017. Premier League side Chelsea snapped him up, at the age of 15, for a reported fee of £500k and he has made the step up to senior level in recent years.

He is currently valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt and has spent the season on loan with Norwich in the Premier League, after winning the Champions League with Chelsea last term. The midfielder has also been capped 12 times by Scotland at international level as he has shown that he has been able to adjust to playing at senior level.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

His value has soared since leaving Rangers as a teenager and now he is worth an eight-figure sum and playing at the top level in England. Meanwhile, the Gers received an initial £500k for his services and have had to watch on from afar as their academy product has achieved success.

Rangers are now set to relive that nightmare with Wilson. By the end of March, the attacker was on 40 goals for the club in all competitions at youth level, which shows how impressive he has been for the academy and that he has big potential to make himself a star in the first team.

Therefore, van Bronckhorst will now be livid that the 16-year-old wants to leave Glasgow and is on course to sign for Villa this summer as he will not be able to utilise his talents in the future. He may now have to watch the striker catch fire in England and wonder what could have been…

AND in other news, Rangers played an Ibrox blinder with £22k-pw “cornerstone” who’s like “Graeme Souness”…
