Rangers have agreed to sell Danny Wilson for a fee which can go upto £5 million. The 18-year-old central defender, voted the SFA’s young player of the year last season, was pulled out of the Rangers squad that departed for a pre-season tour of Australia today to undergo a medical at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground.

A second bid of £2million was rejected by the SPL champions, with the 18-year-old refusing to extend his stay at Ibrox with just 12 months remaining on his contract.

Liverpool had remained unchallenged in their pursuit of Wilson but Tottenham Hotspur, who trumped them to the final Champions League place last season, have now entered the fray and are expected to prompt a bidding war with their Premier League rivals.

“People think that if you’re going for a championship, you will stroll to it but in Scotland you don’t do that.

“We know that we will have to work hard to earn our championship.”

Boyd Blamed for Poor Run

Kenny Miller has blamed strike partner Kris Boyd’s dry spell in front of goal on Rangers’ performances as a whole. Boyd has failed to score since converting a penalty against Hibernian back in February.

Boyd is chasing his 100th goal for Rangers but has failed to hit the same heights as in the first half of the season, where he scored 19 league goals before the new year.
