At just 18-years-old, Danny Wilson is still learning his trade as a defender – and he would struggle to find a better teacher than Jamie Carragher.

The Scot signed for Liverpool from Rangers during the summer and has been tipped to go on to great things.

But the youngster is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and is just pleased to be able to train alongside Liverpool legend Carragher every day.

"Jamie is great and you don't always need to speak to him about things because you can just look at him during training and in matches and learn," Wilson told the official Liverpool website.

"I have been trying to do that and watching him closely.

"You can see the experience he has got and during the games he knows exactly where he should be and he tells the other players that as well.

"He is great in training. Every session he gives it 100 per cent and that's something as a young player you need to learn because he has been doing that at the top level all of his career."

And – although it is a long way off just now – Wilson is aiming to follow in Carragher’s footsteps by becoming an Anfield hero.

He added: "That is something I want to try and emulate and get to the level Carra has myself one day."
