RANGERS defender Danny Wilson wants more goals after finding the net in recent wins over Aberdeen and Ross County.

The 25-year-old bagged a dramatic 83rd minute winner in Saturday’s 2-1 Premiership clash with the Staggies having opening his account for the season with another stunning header at Pittodrie on December 3.

Danny is thrilled to have got his name on the scoresheet in back-to-back games but feels they were long overdue.

He said: “When the ball comes in the box I do sometimes get my head on it and I do get into decent positions, but I’ve not scored anywhere near enough goals since I have come back to the club.

“Hopefully that’s starting to change a wee bit. I’ve got two in the last two games but it’s not so important scoring goals, it’s just being able to contribute when you can.

“If everybody else is scoring and we’re winning I’ll be as happy.”

Wilson admits he felt a sense of relief as he stooped in the box to power his header past Scott Fox, after the goalkeeper had initially saved Josh Windass’ header from James Tavernier’s cross.

“Absolutely there was a sense of relief,” he continued. “We were creating chances without any of them probably being really clear-cut.

“They always seemed to get a toe or a block on the end of it and their keeper was having a good game.

I was just fortunate at that time the ball has come off him and I’ve found myself in a good position. It’s not a place I find myself very often but I was delighted to put the ball in and contribute to the three points.

“We know we can play better but I think we were all happy with the fact that we’ve shown a different side to us.

“We’ve gone behind and there have not been too many times this season where we’ve gone behind and managed to put three points on the board. That was important for us.

“We didn’t start the match particularly well but we finished strongly and we were delighted to win.

“It’s three in a row and a lot has been made of that. We’ve tried not to focus on it too much but maybe people will stop talking about it now and we can just move on.”

Wilson knows Rangers’ performance in the first half against the Staggies was disappointing.

He added: “You could feel it at half-time, the crowd were on our backs a wee bit, but in the dressing room we weren’t happy with how we were playing.

“So it was important for us to just go back out there and put three points on the board, becuase in the two previous games we did very well with two wins against Aberdeen.

“It would have been a real shame if we had come unstuck at home and didn’t get the three points, so we managed to do it and we now have the games against Hibs and St Johnstone to look forward to.”
