Rangers defender Danny Wilson has outlined what his side have to do in order to get a result against Celtic.

The Gers go into the match at Celtic Park 11 points behind their old rivals with very few people expecting anything other than an emphatic Celtic win.

However, Wilson believes that the key element his team have to show is “togetherness”, and if they do that they have a chance of emulating the unlikely 1-1 draw they got at Celtic Park back in March.

A late Clint Hill goal secured a point for the Gers that day, who were managed by Graeme Murty during his first spell as interim manager.

“I think togetherness is going to be massive”, he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“You look at the game last season when we went there and got a point. We had to keep ourselves in the game as long as we could and eventually got the late goal.

“I think it’s going to be important for us to stick together and play as a team.”

Wilson didn’t play in the first derby of the season, a comfortable 2-0 win for Celtic at Ibrox in September thanks to goals from Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths.

The former Hearts defender has returned to the team since Graeme Murty took over as manager from the sacked Pedro Caixinha, and has contributed some important goals from defence, including the opener in the 2-0 win over Motherwell on Wednesday night.

The win over Motherwell kept the Gers just behind Aberdeen in the battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership table, they currently trail the Dons by three points.
