For Gers, he won four League titles, five Scottish Cups and two League Cups as part of 11 honours with his beloved club.

At international level, Wilson had a successful career with Scotland, earning 22 caps and scoring 10 goals for his country.

Wilson was a three-time Hall of Fame inductee with Rangers, Dundee United and Scotland after contributing great achievements and success for each of these teams.

Davie was said to have “loved Rangers with every breath.”

The thoughts of the directors, staff and players of Rangers are today with the family and friends of Davie.
