Wilson happy to fill in on left

Mark Wilson oined from Dundee United as a right-back
Celtic defender Mark Wilson insists his move from right to left-back has not caused friction with Ross Wallace and Mo Camara.

The Scotland Under-21 player said: "The manager just asked if I could play left-back and I said yes.

"I had never played there before, but I just said yes anyway.

"Players like Mo Camara and Ross Wallace are great professionals and know I'm not a left-back. But neither of them don't want to talk to me."

Left-back had been a troublesome position for Strachan, who signed Camara from Burnley at the start of the season then tried winger Wallace in the position.
I would take any position

"He hasn't told me where I'm going to be playing next season or if I'm going to be playing," said Wilson, signed from Dundee United in January.

"But I'm just happy to be playing now and I would take any position, especially at a big club like Celtic."

Strachan had let a natural left-back Charlie Mulgrew go on loan to Dundee United for experience.

But the Celtic boss feels vindicated by the progress of the 22-year-old, who made a good impression in the Tannadice first-team until suffering injury.

"He's been fantastic and it's what we tried to achieve by sending him on loan," said the manager.

"We will try to do it next year as well because I do believe we will learn more about players if the playing first-team football."
