Fowler key to North Queensland Fury landing Dunfermline's Wilson

Dunfermine Athletic defender Scott Wilson is yet to make a decision over an offer from North Queensland Fury.

The 31-year-old defender is weighing up a tempting offer to join Australian A-League side North Queensland Fury, managed by former Ibrox team-mate Ian Ferguson.

But even if Wilson accepts, he will stay at Dunfermline until the summer.

He said: "I'm giving the offer serious thought. Robbie Fowler has signed and that tells you how ambitious they are. I actually played with Robbie in Alan McLaren's Testimonial between Rangers and Middlesbrough at Ibrox when he scored.

"It's a big decision - the biggest I've had since I left Rangers for Dunfermline. My wife, Joanne, and I have two wee boys so there's a lot to think about but the lifestyle and the sunshine in Australia certainly appeal. The down side is leaving family and friends to go to the other side of the world.

"No matter what happens I will not be leaving before the end of the season because we're trying to get back into the SPL and still have a chance of Scottish Cup success."
