Weir: Wilson will cope with Reds

21 July 2010 08:36
Rangers defender David Weir has backed Danny Wilson to be a major success at Liverpool. Wilson is set to join the Reds in a £5million deal subject to passing a Wednesday medical on Merseyside. Weir played alongside the 18-year-old at the heart of the Rangers defence last season and believes the Anfield club are signing a potential star of the future. "Danny will handle it," explained the 40-year-old former Everton defender. "He has handled everything else that's been thrown in his path. He's a good football player and a nice lad. "I don't think it's rocket science, he just needs to keep doing what he's been doing. "If Danny does go then he will keep doing what he's doing and stay the same lad that he is. "He's a great lad, he has been good to work with, and I wish him every success." Wilson made his debut for Walter Smith's side nine months ago and went on to start 24 first-team matches for the club last season.
