An article in The Althetic yesterday revealed the lengths that Ross Wilson will go to in an attempt to persuade them to join Rangers.
Presentations featuring tactics and where the player would fit into our style of play and videos of the target showing what attracted us to them in the first place will certainly help to stroke their ego.
Sometimes, in the case of players like Andy Halliday, there is no need to negotiate, the former Copland Road resident would have walked on broken glass to play for the club he so clearly loved so, what method will our sporting director be using to lure John Souttar along the M8?
Ibrox great atmosphere #bouncing

Well, if Heart and Hand’s David Edgar is right, it could be a mixture of them all, not only is a long since forgotten about tweet from the Hearts defender an indication that he is fond of Ibrox but then there is also the news that his mum is a season ticket holder as revealed on the podcast’s daily update on Thursday:
“The player has a big decision to make whether or not he wants to go down south. The connection to Rangers and family reasons, his mum is a season ticket holder at Ibrox, believe it or not, might tip the balance towards Rangers with the player said to be keen on making the move.”
The size of the club and opportunity alone should be enough to persuade him, however, that there are family ties as well puts the ball firmly in our court, after all, it’s never wise to get in your mum’s bad books.
