Rangers defender Danny Wilson has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he feels he’s got more experience than when he was first at the club.
The defender has just been announced as a signing for new manager Mark Warburton and Wilson has moved to ease concerns some fans may have, over bringing a former player back to the club.
However, Wilson insists that he’s in a better position to have a greater impact across the Rangers back four.
“If I look at myself now compared to when I was 18, I am a much better professional,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.
“I have a lot more experience of life, in general, and I am grateful for this opportunity to come back and show people how I have grown as a player and as a person.”
“Whenever I think of this club, there is a real warm feeling about it.”
Why is it a worry for an old player returning to a former club?
Some will still suggest there are negatives to this move because it’s arguable Wilson hasn’t made the most of the potential he showed during his first spell with the Gers.
What Mark Warburton needs to do is challenge the player to prove the doubters wrong and he can do that by giving the player problems to deal with in key areas of his individual game.
The proof will be in the pudding and the key period for the player will be the start of next season and easing into his performances and showing consistency.
How will his life experience help?
Wilson told the Glasgow Evening Times that he’s now got more life experience, which will help him.
It’s something which will make him more appreciative of things that he maybe overlooked when he was a little bit younger.
He should understand exactly what Rangers are trying to achieve, showing the determination to help them achieve it.
