'It's going to be difficult for me to have a future at Liverpool' - says Danny Wilson after loan move to Hearts

The 20-year-old made just nine first-team appearances during his Anfield stay after joining from Rangers in 2010 but insists the experience was a worthwhile one
Defender Danny Wilson says he finds it difficult to see a future for himself at Liverpool, after agreeing a loan move to Hearts.

The 21-year-old will return to the Scottish Premier League, where he first played for Rangers, after failing to establish himself under various managers at Liverpool, and says competition for places at Anfield is fierce.

"It's going to be difficult for me to have a future at Liverpool," he told the Daily Mail.

"They have four centre backs there who are fighting for two positions.

Wilson made his Hearts debut in a 4-1 defeat to Celtic at the weekend but still maintains that his decision to move to Liverpool was the right one.

"I wouldn't say it backfired," he added.

"I didn't play as much as I hoped when I went down there. But it served its purpose.

"I left Rangers with the intention to become a better football player. I feel I have done that so I don't think it backfired.

"I don't regret anything. I made the decision at the time and I have to stand by my decision.

"I've learned things that I don't know if I would have learned. I was playing against better players in training, the likes of [Luis] Suarez. You can only learn from that. I just want to put what I had into practice in games now."
