πŸ”΄βšͺ⚫🌼 Southampton sporting director Ross Wilson joins Scottish Premiership club

​Southampton's sporting director Ross Wilson has reportedly resigned from the club and is set to join Scottish Premiership side Rangers in the same role according to BBC Sport reports.

Wilson is set to replace outgoing sporting director Mark Allen who allegedly announced that he will be leaving Rangers to tend to personal family matters. 

The 36-year-old kickstarted his career at Falkirk before making his way to Watford and Huddersfield Town - he was to eventually be handed the role of director of football operations at Southampton where he was to spend four years of his career. 

"This job, at this stage in my career, was one I felt I had to take," Wilson said.

"I am both excited and determined to ensure that in working together with the board, Steven [Gerrard, Rangers manager] and all of our staff we can continue to build an excellent, modern football infrastructure and a winning Rangers."

Wilson reportedly met with Rangers for a possible role at the club two years ago, but he eventually changed his mind and opted to remain in England.

Ibrox managing director Stewart Robertson expressed his delight in acquiring Wilson and believes that he has an impressive resume and hopes he will take Rangers forward with his skills. 

"He shares our view of what is required to restore Rangers as the dominant force in Scottish football," Robertson told.

"Ross also shares our vision, and that of our manager Steven Gerrard, of where we want to position this club in the years ahead."

Wilson was behind the recruitment of current Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
