Rangers starlet unhappy with pressure to sign new deal

Rangers defender Danny Wilson feels pressured to sign a new contract at the club. The 18-year-old defender has been offered a new contract at Ibrox although he has one year left on his existing deal.

After being named Scotland's PFA Young Player of the Year on Sunday, he said: "A lot of people have spoken about it, but they've done a lot of talking for me rather than actually asking me what my opinion is," he said.

"My opinion is I've got a year left here.

"I don't think it's fair that a lot of people are saying that I should be the one signing the contract.

"There are six players out of contract at the end of the season; they should take priority.

"There's a summer coming up; who knows what'll happen? Hopefully, everything will get sorted then.

"Things take time and I'm not going to rush into anything.

"Nobody should be too worried."

Wilson also remarked that he pays little attention to transfer speculation linking him with a move away.

He added: "People are doing a lot of talking.

"They're linking me hear there and everywhere but, at the end of the day, I just want to play football and whatever happens happens.

"I'm not too worried, I'm not going to get myself in a state about it.

"I'm in a good position, I've got good people to learn from here, and I'll just take it as it comes."
