    DANNY WILSON has lifted the lid on his shock exit from Rangers and told fans: I wanted to STAY. Wilson, 26, quit for US side Colorado Rapids last month, just days after revealing a desire to sign a new Gers deal. Now the stopper has told how he quizzed Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murty over a contract extension only for Ibrox director of football Mark Allen to perform a U-turn on the deal. Wilson insists he’d have happily stayed at Gers on the same wages but was told he could go. He said: “I made it clear I wanted to stay with Rangers. Absolutely, I wanted to stay. But I was left with no choice but to consider other options. “Plenty of people have had their say about my decision to leave Rangers, especially on social media. “So much of it is inaccurate rubbish. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to set the record straight. “I asked two managers and a director of football about a new contract. “The truth of it is that for four or five months I asked Rangers what the situation was, beginning with Pedro Caixinha before he left. “I was told just to concentrate on my performances — and I thought my performance level over that period of time was good. “Then as it got into January, after we returned from Florida, I went in to speak to them again. “I was told the contract would be there in the next day or so. “That was it. I left the room thinking that would be me, I would be staying at Rangers. “That was on the Tuesday, but by the Wednesday evening I was told there would be no contract for me to sign. “It was Mark Allen, the director of football, who told me. “He’d encouraged me to think there would be a contract for me to stay, but there weren’t even terms discussed. “It was NEVER about money. I actually told Rangers during our brief discussions that I would have been happy to stay on the money I was on. “I was extremely fortunate to have such an attractive offer from Colorado Rapids. “It’s a great opportunity for me and my family with a massively ambitious club — I can’t wait to start.” Wilson, who played over 100 games and won five trophies in two spells at Ibrox, also played for Hearts and had a brief stint at Liverpool. He added: “I was very lucky to get the chance to play for Rangers for one spell. To get a second opportunity was fantastic, and I’ll always be proud about that. “I know I can walk away from Ibrox with my head held high. There are others who are saying I’m taking the easy way out by going to America. That isn’t true at all.” Should have been gave the contract

    Used to watch it all. Football Italia on channel 4 in the 90's. European football. International football. Obscure Taliban Premiership football where the matchball is a severed head (only joking, forgive me) Now, the wages and transfer fees makes my blood boil. We regularly lose out on players to fucking English Championship teams, its grim how an absolute no mark tin pot club can pay 10 times what we can. Then there's those ads with the epic music playing hyping the shite out of the big Burnley vs Stoke game I watch Rangers and Rangers only nowadays. No Sky Sports either anymore. Anyone done a similar turnaround?

    If you accept what he says, it may have just been that the club decided that, with money in short supply, his wages would be put to better use in bringing in someone new. Cummings for example who came available around the same time as Wilson left. Dont think Wilson performed well enough on a consistent basis over the last two years for us to be too fussed about him moving on.

    I’m the exact same, used to watch every game now I just couldn’t care less unless it’s Rangers. The English premier league has become the NFL, the wages and transfer fees are destroying football and have torn the soul right out of the English game. Not to mention ticket prices, stadiums full of tourists and posers whereas real fans can’t afford football anymore, shame really.

    There' something just not right about this. As @Amokachi said there's 3 sides to every story. Probably some facts from both Danny and the club and the details both of them have "forgotten" to put in. Not bothered that a he's gone and good luck to him.

    If Danny Wilson was a foreigner then we would be calling him a mercenary, since he came back he had been half arsed and terrible but decided to up his game when he was trying to earn a new deal. Not sad to see him go at all.

    Can’t recall the poster that pretty much told us this word for word. i don’t think wilson was a long term solution for us but I foot like the thought of us fucking around with players like that.

    Used to watch absolutely everything, now only Rangers and Chelsea. Can't even sit through an episode of MOTD. I've actually grown to hate the sport of football the last 5/6 years.

    Of all the issues to get pissed off at the club about, this one seems more of a stretch than most. Could it not simply be recognition of the fact that he showed repeatedly that he wasn't good enough and that, eventually, the sensible footballing decision was made? Martin was known to be signing on as a first-choice centre-back, we don't need six, he was the easiest one to move on? I know we're not known for proper, pragmatic thinking very often, but in this case it seems pretty joined-up to me. That said, I do feel sorry for him being forced to resort to that booming industry of ex-players going to the papers to have a go...

    For me, it isn't about whether Danny Wilson was a great player for us or not; it's not about whether Danny Wilson deserved another contract or not; it's about whether Danny Wilson is telling the truth or not. If he is telling the truth, then our board/senior management are telling lies or at the least not revealing why there were no discussions about a new contract. There were plenty of responses from the board over the Warburton-Davie Weir episode, so will they respond to this one also? or put another way; are we getting truth and clarity from the club as promised.

    English football has lost something - its easy and trite to say "its lost its soul" but that's as good a description as any. Its became a playground for multi-millionaires who make sure they don't injure each other and don't really care by and large if they win or lose. Very few games now have real passion - the "derbys" are a bit of a joke. Its became the opposite of what English football used to be all about

    I remember the scum releasing a statement saying that the boys club are a separate entity from the CLUB yet if any families have issues then to contact the CLUB! Scummy cunts will get away with it as they’re pretty much untouchable in this country. Them and the Catholic Church are one in the same thing IMO!
