Time for Ross Wilson to pack his bags and leave Rangers after Champions League decision

Rangers crashed to yet another defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, but it wasn’t the performance that was the worst part of it all.

Napoli were pushed all the way at Ibrox but after the red card to James Sands, they put their foot on the pedal and walked away with a 3-0 victory.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is said to be under pressure, but all eyes should be on Ross Wilson, with his recent work in the transfer window simply not good enough.

Jordan Campbell of The Athletic has shared that 34 players have been signed by the Bears since Steven Gerrard’s first season in charge at Ibrox.

Yet, for whatever reason, nine of the starting XI against a young and fearsome Napoli were from that time – meaning only two players were deemed good enough to come in.

Has the business been so bad that not one new face is deemed good or big enough to step up in the Champions League on the biggest stage this season?


Not to bring them up, but Celtic have brought in basically a whole new squad since that time and they are all playing week in, week out, and shining.

So why are we relying on the same old players that are clearly struggling?

Allan McGregor was sensational, but he was only playing due to an injury to the shocking Jon McLaughlin, then you add the likes of Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield who may play well, but are only capable of doing it once or twice a month.

Wilson has brought in numerous players but the likes of Rabbi Matondo, Ridvan Yilmaz, John Souttar and Ben Davies have so far done absolutely nothing in a blue shirt.

There has to be a huge responsibility on his shoulders for that, and with takeover talk continuing to rumble on, some changes have to be on the horizon.

Pressure is certainly building at Ibrox, but Van Bronckhorst isn’t the only one who needs to be looking over his shoulder, it could be time for Wilson to start packing his bags.
