Former Hearts captain Danny Wilson has committed his football future to his current side, the Colorado Rapids. He has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The news pleased the Rapids Executive Vice-President and General Manager Padraig Smith, who was full of praise for the 28-year-old.

“A wonderful presence”

“(Wilson) has done very well in 2020, and he’s one of the best ball-playing centre-backs in the league. He’s a wonderful presence in the locker room, a good leader, a good guy to have in the group” Smith said (Colorado Rapids website).

Wilson moved to the MLS side in January 2018, after a second spell at Rangers. He has been a mainstay for the Rapids in the time he has been at the club, so it is understandable why Smith is so pleased to have the player extend his stay.

One wonders if Wilson will ever return to play in Scotland. He had two spells at Rangers, with time at Liverpool and Hearts in-between.


Will the player ever return to Scotland?

He could easily make that return to Scotland. After all, at only 28-years-old if he can keep fit he has years of football left in his career.

However, the player seems to be settled and comfortable playing in America. Therefore, he might not consider moving back to Scotland.

If he did though, you would imagine that clubs would be interested in signing Wilson. After all, he has proved in the past that he is a very good central defender.

Only time will tell what the future holds, but for now Wilson is committed to Colorado Rapids.
