Rangers have appointed Ross Wilson as their new Sporting Director.

The Scottish Premiership club have made the announcement on their official website.

Wilson has replaced Mark Allen, who left his role as the Rangers Sporting Director last month.

The 36-year-old has arrived at Ibrox with a strong reputation, having been a Director of Football Operations at Premier League club Southampton for the past four-and-a-half years.

Strong Reputation

Wilson has over 15 years in the football industry, and has also worked at Falkirk, Watford and Huddersfield Town.

He was a Football Business Director at Watford, and after leaving the English club in July 2012, he was the Executive Director and Head of Football Operations at Huddersfield for three years.

The University of Strathclyde graduate was then Director of Football Operations at Southampton.

Wilson, who also has a Master’s degree in Sports Management from Stirling University, spent seven years as Head of Football Development and Football Administration at Scottish club Falkirk before he made the move to Watford.

Title Challenge

Meanwhile, Rangers are challenging for the Scottish Premiership title this season and are also aiming to progress to the knockout round of the Europa League.

Steven Gerrard’s side are at the top of the league table at the moment with 21 points from eight matches, two point clear of bitter Old Firm rivals and second-placed Celtic, who have won the title in Scotland for the past eight seasons.

Rangers are currently third in Europa League Group G with three points from two matches, level on points with leaders Feyenoord.
