The 19-year-old stopper has only made four appearances for the Reds since his move from Rangers last summer and most recently featured in the Europa League clash with Sparta Prague.

Wilson filled in at left-back against Sparta and is willing to adapt to earn himself a shot at a regular place.

"It's important for me to show the manager what I can do, and hopefully I've done that," he told Liverpool's official website.

"To get any game (is good), I've not played in two months since the Utrecht match.

"Kenny played me at left back last week, but that's not to say it's where he sees my future. I'm not sure that (left back) is my future.

"I've said before that I'll play wherever the manager tells me to play and I think the most important thing for me was getting the 90 minutes under my belt rather than what position I played.


"So, I'm happy to just get through it and hopefully get in the team more often.

"It will be difficult because there are a lot of players who can play left back at this club.

"So, it's not going to be easy, but if the manager needs to put me there, I'll do that."

In terms of his ambitions to break into the central defensive positions, Wilson added: "It's not for me to say if I can partner anyone else in the centre.

"That's for the manager. All I can do is show him what I can do when I'm given the opportunity.

"If he likes what he sees then he can play me, and if not, I'll need to work a wee bit harder as I've got players in front of me who are right now playing rather than me.

"I need to keep progressing and learning in training and we'll take it from there."
