He not only managed to get the Romanian in January, but persuaded Hibs to give us Florien Kamberi, their best player, as well, on pure loan basis.
Then add the clinical but dignified way 6 players were waved off this summer to reduce the wage bill, trim away the dead wood and stream line the overall squad and it’s evident Rangers’ boss of operations is doing a sterling job.
It’s quite a contrast to the absolute garbage we suffered under Mark Allen.
Under our former DoF, Rangers brought in a tonne of absolute chafe, from June 2017 till September last year, and while there were some great signings as well, Allen was primarily responsible for the atrocious Hispanic nightmare in Govan, not to mention some abysmal Gerrard recruits as well.
We do appreciate the Davises, McGregors, Arfields and Defoes, but this is the guy who gave us Pena, Herrera, Nemane, Ejaria, Grezda, and Worrall and that takes a bit of forgiving. He also part-sanctioned the £7.5M outlay for Ryan Kent.
The club also felt badly run, from a football point of view, under his stewardship but then equally who the hell thought it was a good idea to bring in Man City’s youth head as our DoF?
By comparison, under Wilson, we’ve shed 6 unneeded players, look like selling club assets for a king’s ransom, and signed a spectacular bargain in Hagi plus got a hell of a useful loan in Kamberi.
Wilson’s first transfer window saw a lot of early activity, some dithering for a while, then two late excellent signings in the attacking pair.
Of course, we need a lot more this summer, but there’s a nagging feeling Wilson is far more capable than his predecessor was.
No more Graham Dorrans please…
