Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger appeared on Jim White’s Talksport show earlier and wouldn’t rule out the club’s Head of Recruitment and Scouting Ross Wilson moving to Rangers in the near future. As we exclusively revealed last Monday, Wilson has been offered the Director of Football Role at Ibrox and is believed to be on the brink of accepting the opportunity to return to Scotland.

When asked directly about speculation linking Wilson with Rangers, Krueger said: "For us it’s always a compliment. People always want to come look at our personnel.

"I spoke to Ross last week, we had lunch together, and he’s very committed and excited for staying with us. We never feel anyone needs to stay with us forever. As a club people will come and people will go but at the moment Ross Wilson is an important part of our group and seems committed to where we are moving.

"It’s a compliment to the club that we are getting looked at at all different levels so it’s good for Ross that he was in the talk and I’m happy for him but we see him in our future too."

Reports over the weekend suggest Wilson could be announced in the next few days as Rangers step up their search for a new management team following the resignations of Mark Warburton, Davie Weir and Frank McParland and the appointment of Wilson will go a long way to convince fans the board have made the right appointment.
