Rangers player speaks about stunning transfer to Liverpool
By Harry Sykes
Rangers defender Danny Wilson has revealed he would still have joined Liverpool if he could turn back the clock to 2010.
The centre-back, 25, quit his boyhood club in 2010 to make a stunning £500,000 transfer to the Premier League giants when Roy Hodgson was manager.
But he struggled to make an impression on Merseyside and made just nine senior appearances before leaving for Hearts in 2013 following loan spells at Bristol City and Blackpool.
Wilson was a regular at the Edinburgh club before securing a transfer back to Rangers in the summer of 2015.
The five-times Scotland international does not regret his failed move to Liverpool, explaining how it was to the benefit of all parties at the time as Rangers needed the cash to bring in Nikica Jelavic.

Wilson explained to the Star: “Would I change it? No, I still would have gone to Liverpool at that time because at that time Rangers were probably looking at selling me.
“I had a year left on my contract and with the money they got for me, they bought Jelavic.
“It was good for both parties that we moved on.”
Wilson was a first choice at centre-back last season but has slipped down the pecking order following the signings of Portugese duo Bruno Alves and Fabio Cardoso this summer.
They have formed the first-choice centre-back partnership and Wilson has also been hit by injury in the early weeks of the new campaign.
Now in the final year of his contact, he must convince Pedro Caixinha that he is worthy of a new contract.
