Ex-Liverpool defender Wilson grateful to Hearts

Heart of Midlothian captain Danny Wilson has spoken of his appreciation towards the club for giving him a chance.

Heart of Midlothian captain Danny Wilson has spoken of his appreciation towards the club for giving him a chance.

The 22-year old former Rangers youngster joined the Jambos from Liverpool, initially on loan in January 2013, before moving permanently to Edinburgh last summer.

As Hearts look towards the 2014/15 season in the Scottish Championship, you could forgive Wilson for feeling uneasy about his departure from Anfield as the Reds close in on their first Premier League title.

But the impressive Scotsman has thanked the Tynecastle outfit for giving him regular football even if they have had to deal with plenty of off-field problems in the past 12 or so months.

“Many times people have asked me what my preference would be – I am really happy here,” he said.

“I have said loads of times that I could have left last season when the club had the problem with administration, but I was more than happy to stay here. Nothing has changed in my head since then. I am happy here.

“I have been to other places and not got the game time,” he added, with reference to his spell with Liverpool. “I do enjoy at 3pm on Saturday stepping over that white line and playing. Hearts have given me the opportunity to do that.

“It’s something I am very grateful for.”
