The reserve team coach watched on as his side made it two wins from two outings this season and did so in some style.
Up against an East Fife side that contained seven of the players who featured for the Fifers’ first team at Ibrox in August they dominated the match.
And the coach was pleased by the attitude of a side featuring a blend of youth and experience.
He said: “I was delighted with every single one of them. I knew before the game that East Fife had included a number of their first team squad.
“I warned the boys of that and I thought they showed a fantastic attitude, none more so than Kevin Kyle who showed a real desire to play.
“You don’t always get that from senior players, but he led by example.
“I’ve had him training with some of the younger boys on a couple of occasions and he’s always encouraging and cajoling them.”
Kyle’s inclusion meant the scorer of the winner against Annan Reserves, Calum Gallagher, had to miss out.
He did make a scoring appearance as a sub and Wilson was pleased by that reaction from the young forward.
He added: “Callum didn’t really deserve to be left out tonight but the manager wanted Kevin and Kal Naismith to get a bit of a run out and that’s what reserve football is about.
“He came on and scored a magnificent goal and that was a really good response from him.”
