Rangers star Danny Wilson has admitted that his starting place with the Gers could be under threat after an influx of new signings at the club.

The central defender has said he is aware of the challenges next season will bring but would never ask Mark Warburton for more playing time just to develop his own games.

Warburton has heavily strengthened his squad after winning promotion to the Scottish Premier League by bringing in Matt Gilks, Clint Hill, Joey Barton, Jordan Rossiter, Lee Hodson and Niko Kranjcar.

“Expectations at this club mean you don’t get time. I wouldn’t ask for time either to improve,” he told The Glasgow Evening Times.

“We know that once we are back we have to be challenging for the title but I would not have it any other way.”

The 24-year-old rejoined Rangers in 2015 and helped secure the club’s promotion to the top flight and believes that he can make the step up next season.

Former Accrington pair Matt Crooks and Joshua Windass have also arrived after they signed pre-contract agreements in January.

Wilson has won the Scottish Championship for the last two seasons, firstly captaining Hearts in the 2014-15 season and following that up last year with the Ibrox side.

He penned a three-year-deal on his return to Rangers, a club who he previously made 24 appearances for as a youngster.

In other Rangers news, Mark Warburton has confirmed the club will open talks with Oguchi Onyewu about signing for the club.
