The Rapids continue shoring up their back line some more and are said to have interest in Danny Wilson of Rangers FC of the Scottish Premier League, story here.
More from the Daily Record website here.
Wilson just 26 years old has made 61 appearances with Rangers since joining them in June 2015. His transfer would appear to be a free transfer for the Rapids as Wilson’s contract with Rangers runs out at the end of May 2018. Wilson, it has been reported has recently had his medical with the Rapids, which means he could join the club sooner than the conclusion of his contract with Rangers FC.
