Rob Kiernan backs Rangers teammate Danny Wilson for international recall

Rangers defender Danny Wilson is good enough to play for Scotland, suggests Rob Kiernan.

Rangers defender Rob Kiernan has told The Scottish Sun that teammate Danny Wilson is good enough to play for the Scotland national football team.

Wilson returned to Rangers in the summer transfer window after leaving Heart of Midlothian at the end of the 2014-15 season.

The centre-back has been in impressive form for the Gers so far this campaign and has established himself as a key player in Mark Warburton’s side.

Kiernan, who moved to Rangers from English League One outfit Wigan Athletic in the summer transfer window, believes that the 23-year-old former Liverpool defender is good enough to play for the Scotland national team.

“I think every player wants to play for their country,” the 24-year-old told The Scottish Sun. “Danny has had a taste, so I’m sure he is hungry to play again.

“All he can do is play well week in, week out for Rangers and everything will take care of itself.

“I’ve known of him since he got his move to Liverpool and I’ve been impressed with him since the day I walked through the door.”

Wilson has earned five caps for Scotland so far in his career, scoring one goal in the process.

The 23-year-old is one of the best defenders in the Scottish Championship, and Scotland manager Gordon Strachan should look at him in the coming months.

The problem with Wilson is that he is playing in the second tier of Scottish football, which is not very competitive.

Rangers are running away with the league title at the moment, and perhaps Wilson will have to prove that he can play well in the Scottish Premiership to earn a Scotland recall.
