Rangers defender Danny Wilson responds to criticism

Rangers defender Danny Wilson suggests that the players are not bothered about criticism.

Rangers defender Danny Wilson has suggested to The Glasgow Evening Times that he and his teammates not concerned about recent criticisms.

“The criticism that has come our way has been a little bit over the top because in the games we hadn't won, we didn't play badly, it was just the result didn't go our way,” said Wilson.

“But it's a results business and we are expected to win. The pressure's higher because of the league that we are in and that's something we are going to have to deal with.”

Rangers have been the best team in the Scottish Championship so far this season and are expected to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

The Gers at the top of the league table at the moment with 37 points from 14 matches, level on points with second-place Hibernian but with a game in hand.

In recent weeks, there have been signs that Mark Warburton’s side are slowing down, thus enabling automatic promotion rivals Hibs to catch up with them.

At the start of the month, Rangers went down 2-1 to Hibernian away from home at Easter Road in the Scottish Championship, and three weeks later the Gers were held to a 1-1 draw by Livingston away from home at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
