Reports are breaking this lunchtime that Rangers have had their second significant rejection of the summer following Fenerbahce’s Martin Skrtel with the claim Liverpool’s Harry Wilson has similarly said no.
The unconfirmed reports suggest the attacker is no longer interested in Rangers following two apparent previous opportunities the Ibrox men had to secure his services but didn’t pursue, in concert with a host of serious suitors for his signature in the form of a clutch of Championship sides eager to sign him up.
The winger has been a revelation for Hull, and has become a rather coveted prize, with a boatload of potential – unfortunately for him his parent club have their famous ‘trident’ up front and Wilson is probably some way off being able to dislodge the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino.
Hence he is looking for a good club to become a first-team starter with, and his displays at the KCOM last season have put potential destinations on red alert.
Rangers with Steven Gerrard on board had been close to managing to bring him north, but these latest developments claim another marquee target has been lost.
We hope they’re wrong.
