Danny Wilson declares Rangers will turn on the style next season

The summer signing has promised to reward the loyalty of the Rangers faithful.

New arrival Danny Wilson has responded to the overwhelming demand for Rangers season tickets by pledging to play a style of football worthy of their support.

Speaking at a Rangers press conference, posted on the club’s official website, Wilson was grateful for the support - with 20,000+ renewing their season tickets – and said the onus was now on the players to reward the loyalty of the fans.

“Having a big crowd there is important, but at the same time, we need to make sure that we are putting on performances that are worthy of the big crowds that are going to come and watch us,” said the 23-year old.

He added: “There’s been a great response so far before the public sale and the more fans we get in, the better, but the product on the pitch has to be worthy and that’s what we’re working on in training.

“…To make sure we’re playing a winning style but also a style that’s good on the eye.”

His words are sure to be music to the ears of Gers fans who will be hopeful new boss Mark Warburton can reproduce the attractive football his Brentford team displayed during his time at Griffin Park and guide the club back to the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers’ two biggest signings this summer have been defenders - with Rob Kiernan and ‘keeper Wes Foderingham joining Wilson, while right-back Reece Wabara continues his trial – and attacking reinforcements will be required if the Gers are to turn on the style next season.

Former Bradford midfielder Andy Halliday is also still on trial and his signing would be the first in a more advanced area of the pitch, but a replacement for the departed Kris Boyd must be high on Warburton's priorities sooner rather than later.
