Rangers return could lead Wilson back to Scotland team

Rangers new boy Danny Wilson is hoping that a return to Ibrox could earn him a recall to the Scotland national team.

The 23-year-old defender spent uneventful three years at Liverpool before he joined Hearts in 2013 and is now back with 'Gers where he kicked off his senior career back in 2009.

Wilson, who won the first of his five international caps as an 18-year old in 2010, is determined to help Rangers achieve promotion to the Scottish Premiership while striving to turn the head of Scotland boss Gordon Strachan for a return to national team action.

He said: "I'm happy with where I am just now. Obviously I will be happier if we get promotion and back up challenging in the Premiership. With that, hopefully I can get back in the national team.

"Looking back, I was probably thrust in a bit early. Not many 18-year-olds make their debut and are part of the squad. I was fortunate to do that, but now I have taken that wee step back.

"I've not been involved with the national team for a long time but it just makes me hungrier to get back.

"I appreciate it is going to take time. It might take us getting back up and competing in the Premiership.

"People might say I have not hit the heights yet but I am still only 23 and have a lot of football ahead of me.

"I am not worried about it. I know I need to have a good season to make sure we go up."
