'We can nip it in the bud'- Wilson reacts to volatile Rangers clash

By Aramide Oladipo

Rangers defender Danny Wilson is confident that the team will bounce back from the defeat against Hibernian this past weekend.

The 25-year-old came on as a second-half substitute and he produced an assist in the match but Rangers suffered their first loss of the new season as Hibernian came away with a 3-2 victory in the volatile clash at Ibrox.

Pedro Caixinha’s men were reduced to 10 men after summer signing Ryan Jack was sent off in the first-half and despite goals from Alfredo Morelos and James Tavernier, the Gers failed to secure a point.

The result leaves Rangers in sixth place in the league table after two matches played and they are already trailing SPL champions and Old Firm rivals Celtic by three points.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Wilson believes that the team do not need to panic following the defeat and he is convinced that the team will work hard to come back even stronger.

“This is just one defeat and hopefully we can nip in the bud and won’t have too many more,” he said.

“It’s still early days in terms of the season. We may have lost to Hibs and gone down to 10 men but up until that point when Ryan Jack was sent off I thought we looked pretty good.

“We won’t dwell on it too much. We will try and tighten up but we’re not going to make wholesale changes and sit with every man behind the ball and hope to hit teams on the counter attack.

“Playing at Ibrox we have to look and take the ball and we have to try and win every game.”

After an injury-hit campaign last season, Wilson has featured in every match this time around as he looks to get up to speed with his fellow teammates.

The Scotland international could possibly feature on the weekend as Rangers looks to bounce back as they face Hearts at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.
