Former Rangers captain Ally Dawson told the Glasgow Evening Times that he doesn’t think it would be a player if Danny Wilson went back to the Scottish Championship club.
The paper links the ex-Rangers player with becoming a first signing under new manager Mark Warburton, who seems keen to make a positive early impression in the transfer market.
Dawson doesn’t feel that the possibility of Wilson not being the same player, will be a factor which holds Warburton back from making a big play to get his man.
“Sometimes returning to a former club is not the right thing to do – and I think that has been shown with more senior players,” he said.
“But I think Danny is young enough and he is coming back to Rangers having learned a lot from his experiences and he is also a much more confident player.”
Why is it a worry for an old player returning to a former club?
It’s a possible worry as there could be a little bit of bad feeling which has developed following a move and there is also a worry that a player just won’t have the same impact or effect.
However, in those instances there is a pressure on the manager to step in and deal with any negative feelings, which exist as a result.
Warburton has to be backed to get the best out of Wilson if any move goes through this summer.
Best years ahead of him
Wilson has his best years ahead of him because he’s only 23-years-old.
He’s got plenty of time to develop and improve on any weaknesses that he feels he’s got in his game, which would eclipse any progress or potential he showed during his first spell with the club.
