Wilson hopes for long Rangers partnership with McCrorie
The centre back says his pairing with the young Scot has worked well so far.
Rangers defender Danny Wilson says teenage centre-back Ross McCrorie has been "great" since coming into the side and hopes for a successful partnership with him.
Wilson and McCrorie have been paired at the heart of Rangers defence for the two games so far under interim manager Graeme Murty.
The Ibrox club have won both matches, away at Hearts and at home to Partick Thistle.
Murty stuck with the same side for the latter despite veteran Portugal international Bruno Alves being available for selection.
Wilson revealed Murty had told him he was keeping faith with the same side and the defender is hopeful that can continue.
"He named the team the day before," Wilson said.
"We knew we were going to be playing and he just said that after the game away at Hearts the team that had played deserved to play again.
"I'm very thankful that he stayed with it."
He added: "We've had two games and we've won two games together. It's difficult to say if it'll work long-term. It just depends on games and form and whatever.
"All I know is that if I continue to be selected I'll give everything that I can and I'm sure Ross will do the same.
"If we can form a good partnership, as we have done in the two previous games we'll be delighted with that.
"I think we're well aware that we've got some good players within the squad and we're all capable of keeping each other out. I think that's been proven in the last few games."
McCrorie's emergence as a young defender in the Rangers first team is similar to Wilson's own breakthrough at Ibrox in 2009.
While he said he was happy to share his experience with the teenager, McCrorie would have to learn lessons by himself.
"I think you can always guide someone as best as you can and try and help them along but at the end of the day they're going to have to make their own way, make their own mistakes and get their own learning curves," he said.
"Ross has been great since he's come into the side and long may that continue for everybody."
