'Ideas up his sleeve' - Wilson makes suggestion about Rangers clash v Aberdeen
Rangers defender Danny Wilson is eager to help the Gers into second in the Scottish Premiership and repay Graeme Murty’s faith in him with a win if Sunday’s clash with Aberdeen proves to be the interim Ibrox boss’ last game in charge.
Murty was handed the reins on a short-term basis in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking on October 26th with the Gers widely expected to name Caixinha’s successor next week.
Since taking charge, Wilson has been brought in from the cold to become a first-team regular under Murty.
Now, the former Liverpool defender Wilson hopes the Gers can take another three points and has suggested that caretaker boss Murty may have some tricks up his sleeve for this weekend.
“We’re not privy to the information that suggests this will be his last game,” Wilson said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“If it is we’d like to win first and foremost for ourselves to hopefully get an improvement in the league position.

“I like the way he coaches us; he allows you an input but he’s firm in his own beliefs of what he wants to be done and doesn’t mind telling you.
“His training sessions are constructive and his ideas are good – he thinks about the game and clearly did his homework the other night.
“I’m sure he’ll have ideas up his sleeve for Sunday. He’s able to adapt and he’s got the makings of being a good manager in the future.”
Murty has won three of his five games in charge since taking over after Caixinha’s dismissal and could leave the Light Blues in second-place in the Scottish Premiership for whoever is tasked with managing the Gers full-time.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is the bookies favourite to replace Caixinha and could return to Ibrox – where he spent five years as a player – next week.
The Gers travel to Pittodrie knowing a win would see them leapfrog the Dons in the Scottish Premiership less than a week after staring at a possible 12-point deficit to Derek McInnes’ side.
In other Rangers news, Murty has claimed that his summer signing was a bargain buy.
