As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers defender Danny Wilson is on the brink of an exit from Ibrox this week, with the player set to undergo a medical at Major League Soccer side Colorado Rapids later today.
The homegrown talent’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and that’s forced the move, according to the paper.
Wilson has had his ups and downs at Rangers since rejoining the club from Liverpool in 2015, but recently has strung together some consistent performances with Graeme Murty making him a trusted member of his starting eleven.
Having made over 100 appearances for the Ibrox outfit, it appears his time in Glasgow is coming to an end, but it’s not an exit that supporters are particularly happy with.
Many would much rather he stay on and sign a new contract rather than move elsewhere, preferring to see fellow defenders like Bruno Alves make an exit instead.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the exit reports this week…
Have to be honest, I would be gutted if Danny Wilson left us for the MLS. Still only 26 and has his best years ahead of him. Although the chance of the American sporting lifestyle may be too good to turn down for him & his family. Fingers crossed he stays 🤞🏻

Danny Wilson has been a revelation for Rangers since Murty came in, I’d much rather see Alves and Cardoso leave than Wilson. I really hope this is just an agent trying to negotiate a better deal for his client and Danny Wilson remains a Rangers player.

Danny Wilson can not be sold.

Says a lot for Danny Wilson's recent performances that I'd be disappointed to lose him. Yes, his concentration is woeful at times but he's also a first class defender when it suits him. And a useful club-trained option for Euro comps also. However, he is replaceable too.

A lot of people happy to slaughter Danny Wilson, not always been the best but still reasonably young and playing really well just now! I’d be happier if he stayed! Don’t even know the exact situation yet, but still the knives are oot!
