Charlie Adam has been speaking on the latest edition of the BBC’s Sportsound podcast about all things relating to Scottish football.
One of the teams that he spent a little bit of time on was Rangers, and while he was speaking about the Gers, he praised Ross Wilson’s arrival as Sporting Director.
Certainly, Gerrard’s former teammate Adam was full of praise for Wilson.
He said: “Ross coming in now made a big difference. I like him. He’s got an eye for a player; knows how to run a football club.
“He started at Falkirk with no money, but then built his way up into Southampton, who had a lot of money.
“Now he’s back at Rangers [which] is a big job for him. So he’s done a terrific job.”
Do you think Wilson deserves a lot of credit for Rangers' success?
Yes, he has been crucial
No, he hasn't done that much
TIF Thoughts on Wilson’s appointment…
Since Wilson has arrived at Ibrox the Gers have made some brilliant signings on cheap deals as well, for example, Balogun arrived in Glasgow on a free transfer, and Kemar Roofe was signed for just £4.5m and both have performed well in the league in the time they have been at Rangers.
Wilson is only 36 but already has lots of experience with Southampton, Falkirk, and Huddersfield Town and it is clear that his experience is helping him in this role
So, we agree with Adam that Wilson has done a brilliant job for Rangers and we will be intrigued to see who he brings to Ibrox next.
