'He’s done well' - Danny Wilson raves about Rangers team-mate
By James Black
Rangers defender Danny Wilson has been delighted to see teenage sensation Ross McCrorie thrive in the first-team – and admits playing alongside the youngster has helped him out too.
Wilson, 25, returned to the first-team for the Gers recent win at Murrayfield against Hearts and partnered McCrorie, 19, in the absence of regular defensive pairing Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso.
The pair shone against Craig Levein’s side and retained their places for last weekend’s 3-0 win over Partick Thistle at Ibrox.
Wilson also thinks that playing in same side as McCrorie in training games has helped the pair build a good understanding together in defence.
“I think we do complement each other well,” Wilson said, as quoted by the Evening Times website.

“When the last manager worked on shape myself and Ross were in the same team together with Fabio (Cardoso) and Bruno (Alves) in the other.
“We have worked a lot on the training ground and that has maybe shown in the games when we have struck up a decent partnership.
“I like Ross too – he’s a good young player and it’s nice to play alongside him helping him as much as he’s helped me.
“The important thing with Ross is that he’s done well.”
Wilson’s Ibrox contract comes to an end in the summer and the former Hearts and Liverpool stopper will be hoping he is given an opportunity to prove he deserves an extended deal.
After leaving Ibrox to join Liverpool, Wilson spent four years with the Anfield giants before returning to Scotland with Hearts.
A stand-out in his time at Tynecastle, Wilson returned to Rangers in 2015 when Mark Warburton snapped him up on a free transfer.
The defender has made 98 appearances for the Gers over his two spells with the club.
