Danny Wilson is convinced Rangers can bounce back from yesterday’s defeat to take three points against Hearts next weekend. Wilson, who came off the bench at half-time yesterday, has fallen behind Fabio Cardoso & Bruno Alves in the pecking order at Ibrox but has made a handful of appearances from the bench so far this season. After the yesterday’s 3-2 defeat, Wilson believes the Gers need to refocus and restore the momentum which saw them pick up wins against Motherwell and Dunfermline.

Speaking to, he said: “From the tail end of pre-season, we have been in good spirits and have been building good momentum, which has come to a stop.

“We need to pick it up again next week and get three points on the board.

“We know we could have done a lot better. With the way we started the game, we could have been a couple of goals up and the sending-off changed it, there’s no getting away from that.

“We have to be better when we go down to 10 men, to close the game up and give ourselves a better chance. “When the game goes 3-1, it’s virtually over, so when the game goes to 2-1, we have to give ourselves the best opportunity.

“When we were 11 versus 11, I thought there was only one team that was going to win. “Even when they equalised, I was still confident we would go on and get the job done, but the sending-off does change it and it’s a tough one to take.

“It’s still early in the season and we are still trying to grow as a team. We will come back from this.”
