Ross Wilson: No Rangers players need to be sold

Ross Wilson has insisted that Rangers don’t have to sell players in upcoming windows despite recent financial losses.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst was introduced to the media for the first time at Ibrox this afternoon, alongside Wilson in the Blue Room.

Quizzed on transfers and finances, Wilson shared that if players are sold, the money will be reinvested straight back into the squad.

Speaking live to the media this afternoon as shared on Sky Sports, Wilson responded to claims players have to be sold.

“We as a club have been clear on that,” he said.

“There’s no mandate to the manager that we have to sell players, we’ve been really, really clear in our communication that we see player trading that has to be normal.

“We’ve rejected some significant offers for some of our players in the past two windows, and we’ll do so again unless they’re the right offers for the right players at the right time.

“If we accept any offers then what we’ll definitely be doing, is reinvesting back in the squad to keep taking us forward.”

Brilliant.

This is exactly the news that everyone wanted to hear.

Just because the club posted financial losses, it shouldn’t force drastic action, mainly because most clubs will be in the red after the COVID-19 lockouts.

Van Bronckhorst will have seemed assurances, and it looks as though he has been given them based on his appointment.

Looking at yesterday’s defeat, the January window may be one to keep a very close eye on – with some of those linked with exits simply not good enough yet again.

Could cashing in on them and starting again in some areas help? It’s hard to tell at this stage, but hopefully, van Bronckhorst sets a light going again at Auchenhowie this week.
