Danny Wilson highlights a similarity between Mark Warburton and Robbie Neilson

Former Liverpool defender Danny Wilson joined Glasgow Rangers after leaving Hearts earlier this summer.

Danny Wilson has told The Glasgow Evening Times how his new Rangers manager Mark Warburton and Heart of Midlothian boss Robbie Neilson are similar.

The former Liverpool defender joined Rangers earlier this summer after leaving Hearts at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

The Gers have already started pre-season training in order to prepare for the upcoming 2015-16 campaign.

Wilson has given an insight into how Rangers boss Warburton conducts his training sessions, and has highlighted a similarity between him and Hearts manager Neilson.

“It’s similar to last year,” the 23-year-old centre-back told The Glasgow Evening Times.

“The manager has his own ideas he wants to get across but we are all enjoying it and looking forward to getting our first game under our belts on Friday.

“We felt it at times last season. It’s the way some managers like to work. It’s intense but it has to be intense for a reason.”

Wilson was one of the better players for Hearts in the 2014-15 Scottish Championship campaign.

The former Liverpool centre-back was an important figure in Hearts’ promotion to the Scottish Premiership, and it is interesting that he decided to leave them.

Moving to Rangers, who are in the Championship, may be seen as a step down by many, but for Wilson it represents a chance to return to Ibox and make a name for himself for the Gers.
