Rangers teenager Danny Wilson has completed his transfer to Liverpool after signing a three-year contract with Roy Hodgson's side. The 18-year-old, who won the SFA and Football Writers' Young Player of the Year awards last season, passed his medical at Anfield on Wednesday afternoon. He said after sealing his switch to the Reds: "It's a great feeling to sign for Liverpool. Wherever you go everyone knows Liverpool FC and I'm just very happy to be here. "This is a massive challenge for me. This is one of the best leagues in the world and I'll be playing for one of the biggest teams in the world. "Coming here from Scotland, people may say I might not be ready for this, but that's a challenge I want to put on myself and that's the reason I came here. "Everyone knows about the history of this football club with 18 league titles. "It wasn't a difficult decision to come here as Liverpool aren't a team who come in for you every day, so I can't wait to get started. "There were other clubs interested in me who are in the Champions League, but once Liverpool came in for me there was only one team I wanted to go to." Wilson made his debut for Walter Smith's side nine months ago and went on to start 24 first-team matches for the Gers last season.
