Dumbarton manager Stevie Aitken is delighted to have secured the signing of a player who has already played for the Rangers first team.
“We are a little short on bodies right now, so Aidan comes in at a good time,” said Aitken, as quoted by the Dumbarton official site. “He’s highly thought of at Rangers and Ian (Durrant) speaks highly of him.”
The 19-year-old centre-back has made three appearances for the Rangers first-team since Pedro Caixinha handed him his senior debut last May.
Wilson has been at Rangers for his whole career and this is his first loan move away from the club.
The centre-back joins Dumbarton as they sit ninth in the Championship and they are set to be next in action against Greenock Morton on Saturday.
