As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers are now facing competition from Celtic for the signature of Liverpool’s Harry Wilson this summer.

The club have already announced seven signings since Steven Gerrard took charge of the club, but with more expected, Wilson has been seen by supporters as one of the more exciting.

The 21-year-old prospect spent the second half of last season on loan at English Championship side Hull City, impressing hugely with seven goals and four assists in 13 appearances.

With plenty of direct goal contributions for Liverpool’s U23 side too, it’s clear he is ready for more first team football.

The Sun reckon that Liverpool are considering all inquiries for his services with Rangers, Celtic, Hull and Norwich all keen to sign him on loan for the season.

Losing out on the player to Celtic would be a definite blow to Gerrard, who has already successfully utilised his Liverpool connections with moves for Jon Flanagan and Ovie Ejaria.

Surely now he can use that pull again to ensure that one of his top reported summer targets doesn’t end up moving across the city and potentially damage the club’s push for trophies next season.

If the Light Blues can convince Wilson to sign at Celtic’s expense then it would be more evidence of the positive direction the club is heading in and proof that Gerrard is build something pretty special.
