Gough: Defender Should Never Have Joined Liverpool

By on September 6, 2011

Danny Wilson’s move to Liverpool last summer was a mistake, at least that is according to former Rangers captain Richard Gough.

The former Rangers legend believes the move to the Premiership has hampered the young defenders progress. The 19-year old won the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year before he made the switch to Liverpool last summer.

“The move to Liverpool had its lure for Wilson, he may have doubled his wages and I understand why the former Rangers kid took it,” Gough told the Scottish Sun.

“In football terms, though? It was a mistake.”

    A mistake in footballing terms? to play and train with players like Suarez Gerard and others at a quality premier league club?

    If it’s printed in the Sun no matter which derivative, it’s pure crap and anyone who writes for them is pure s****.

    I need add nothing further.

    As Townson Tom says, he is training and learning from experienced players (who have won the Champions league). I’m sure that he is improving more playing with the Liverpool reserves than if he stayed at Rangers because the Liverpool reserve team could probably win the c**py Scottish league which is mostly made up from championship and league 1 standard players.

    All you’s know f*** all about football. Fair enough the SPL is not the best quality league but Rangers are still good enough to compete in the premier league, obviously not win it but atleast come around 10th. Plus the Liverpool reserves would have no chance against rangers considering the main team lost 1-0 to rangers. Plus how can you improve more not playing than if you were playing. Playing at rangers would have been a great platform to have started of at, and after a few seasons he would have been a more complete player with a better chance of breaking into liverpools first team. Obviously it’s a great opportunity to be training with the likes of liverpools first team, however to get first team games under your belt when ur young is invaluable. If any of yous know anything about you’s would know it was a mistake. So f*** off.
