Rangers defender Danny Wilson aims to savour victory in his second major cup final six years after feeling “very, very guilty” collecting a winners’ medal.

Wilson was sent off in Rangers’ 2010 League Cup final meeting with St Mirren but his team-mates defied the odds to win the trophy through Kenny Miller’s header.

The centre-back had mixed emotions after the match and he wants only the taste of victory following his side’s William Hill Scottish Cup meeting with Hibernian on May 21.

Wilson, who was dismissed for pulling back Craig Dargo, said: “Obviously I was sent off in the game, that was the second sending-off that day so we were down to nine men.

“We won the game in the end but on a personal note to be sent off at 18 years old was devastating.

“But the team’s the most important thing and the team managed to rally together and get an incredible win from the circumstances.

“It was a little bit bittersweet for me. It was the first time I had been sent off so I didn’t quite know how to react to it. I was very fortunate my team-mates bailed me out but hopefully that doesn’t happen again.”

Wilson has already helped Rangers to two trophies this season but the former Liverpool and Hearts player was honest enough to admit he personally could have had a better campaign.

Wilson said: “At times it’s been good and at other times it could always be better. I’m highly critical of myself, and at times this season it’s been good and other times not quite been good enough. I will take stock of it, I am always trying to be the best I can be.”
