'Contracts don't mean much' - 25-year-old sends warning to underperforming Rangers teammates
By Danny Wright
Danny Wilson has sent a warning to his underperforming teammates at Rangers and said that Pedro Caixinha’s arrival will shake things up.
The 25-year-old also said that the new manager would move anyone on who wasn’t delivering for the team.
Caixinha was named as Mark Warburton’s successor in mid-March and he won his first game in charge with a 4-0 thrashing of Hamilton last week.
Wilson has started just 15 out of the Light Blues’ 29 league games this season but the centre-back is enjoying life under the Portuguese boss.
“There is an uncertain time when any manager comes in. You can’t get comfortable in your contracts because they don’t mean that much,” said Wilson, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“If you need to be moved on you will be and if they want to keep you here then great. We have nine league games and a cup tie and I’m sure everybody will be doing as much as they can to prove they deserve to be here next season.
“It is the first time I have worked under a foreign coach and I am enjoying it. A lot of it has been tactical and technical – the sessions have also been a bit longer.”
Wilson, who is in his second spell at Ibrox, has been in and out of the Gers first-team this season with injury problems.
The Hamilton victory and the draw with Celtic the week before was the first time Wilson has managed to complete 90 minutes in back-to-back league games since December.
Since returning to the blue half of Glasgow in 2015, Wilson has helped the club earn promotion back to the Scottish Premiership by winning the Championship last season.
In total, he’s made 87 appearances for Gers on either side of spells at Liverpool and Hearts.
