Danny Wilson: This is what Rangers squad must do during manager search
By James Black
Rangers defender Danny Wilson has insisted Rangers’ players need to “just get on with it” after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking as manager.
Wilson has found himself back in the Gers starting XI since Caixinha was sacked with Under-20’s boss Graeme Murty put in interim charge.
The former Liverpool defender has started both games under Murty as the Light Blues have racked up two wins from two.
Wilson has barely featured for the Gers under Caixinha this term but his impressed after returning with two composed performances alongside 19-year-old Ross McCrorie.
The central defender admits the players can’t use the lack of a permanent manager distract their focus from getting results on the pitch as they try and close the three-point gap to Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.

“I think we as players just need to get on with it,” Wilson said, in a video posted on Rangers official website.
“We’ve done it in the last two games after the manager left and picked up two wins so as players you can’t really focus on it and say we need a manager in.
“Murty’s come in and he’s done a great job so far and I’m sure if he’s asked to continue he’ll continue to do so and we as players need to give our full backing to whoever is in charge.”
Wilson is in his second spell with the Gers after returning to Ibrox after stints with Liverpool and Hearts.
The defender was a mainstay under Mark Warburton but fell out of favour after Pedro Caixinha’s rebuild in the summer when he brought 11 new players in – including central defenders Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso.
Wilson’s Rangers deal ends at the end of the season and the 25-year-old will be hoping for the opportunity to impress a new manager and win a new deal at Ibrox.
