DANNY Wilson stressed Rangers ambitions for this season won’t alter just because of a “couple of bad results.”

The defender said he knows the Gers need to be challenging at the top of table and believes a bit of luck can see the Light Blues turn a corner.

Rangers go into this weekend’s game against Partick Thistle looking for a first league since late August and seventh in the table but Wilson doesn’t think much can be read into league position.

The 24-year-old said: “We have talked about the weekend and we see where we’re going wrong but we don’t see that there is a lot to be done.

“We just need a wee bit of luck for things to change for us, we’ll keep going, we won’t make wholesale changes just for the sake of it, and we know what we’re about.

“There’s maybe a wee bit of it not falling for us in front of goal, we had chances at Aberdeen and it just takes one of those to go in.

“We won’t change our ambitions because of a couple of bad result or a slow start to the season because we need to be challenging near the top.

“We’ll go into this game looking for three points and we know we need to start moving up the table because where we are is not where we want to be.

“Had we won the game at the weekend we would have been second but as it happens we are down to seventh – I wouldn’t read too much into that right now.

“If you put the performances in the points will come but in saying that we have played very well and maybe not got what we fully deserved from the game.

“That is how football works sometimes, we are not just going to go back to basics and start doing things that aren’t what we do.”

Wilson has retained his place in the centre of the Gers defence alongside Clint Hill for the team’s last three fixtures.

After two clean sheets he and Hill conceded twice against Aberdeen last weekend and if he retains his spot this Saturday he says they will be looking to cut out some sloppy mistakes.

The defender continued:

“Some of the goals we have conceded have been fairly sloppy but it’s one of those things which gets blown up in a way when you play for this club.

“We are a team which tries to control the game and if that means we have a lot of the ball then we are going to be high up the pitch.

“Maybe then the long ball in behind us might cause a few problems but we’re working to try and eradicate that from our game.

“We aren’t going to change the style of play, we like to try and control the game. We know why we do that, we want to be on the ball and causing problems and sometimes that might mean we let the odd chance in and we concede a goal.

“But we won’t change just for that or to please anybody else, we know why we’re trying to play the way we are so we’ll keep going and hopefully we can keep the goals out and start putting them in at the other end.

“We are looking for ways to try and make it better but all we can do is keep working hard and see where we’re going wrong and hopefully turn a corner for us.”
