Liverpool starlet makes Dalglish tribute

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Danny Wilson has paid tribute to manager Kenny Dalglish.

The Reds boss has thrusted a number of youngsters into first team action at Anfield since taking over in January, and Wilson joins Jay Spearing and Martin Kelly in paying tribute to the Scot.

"With Kenny it's good for players like me to see the manager is willing to put young players in the side on a regular basis," the teenager told LFC magazine.

"His attitude seems to be 'if you're good enough, you're old enough'. Since he's came in he's given me four games and I'm happy with that. Some of the young lads have also had a chance too. It's up to us to take those opportunities."

As a young Scot away from home, it could have been hard for the former Rangers full back to settle into life on Merseyside, but the arrival of compatriot Steve Clarke has helped in some way, as the youngster explains.


"It's good to have other people around who can understand my accent," joked Wilson.

"There are a few Scots here now and that's nice. More important than the fact that he's Scottish is Steve's a good coach. All of us enjoy training and we're happy to have him here."

Wilson concluded with a tribute to teammate and club legend Jamie Carragher, who is now the fourth all-time appearance maker for the Reds in their history.

"The way he works, his professionalism and his approach to training is second to none, so it's not really a surprise to hear he's played that many times."
