With his deal set to expire in the summer the 26-year-old was delighted to sign a new one-year extension yesterday and is not concerned about failing to seal a bumper deal.

And Wilson revealed he wouldn't have been able to live with himself if he had been given another four-year deal and was then struck down by the injury problems that have blighted his career at Celtic Park This page is about the soccer stadium in Glasgow.

Improve He said: "I can understand why it's not a three or fouryear contract, the club have to cover themselves as well.

"I wouldn't want to sign a three or four-year deal and then feel terrible if I got injured again. That would be a bad situation.

"This gives me a chance to try to stay in the team for as long as possible and improve my fitness.

"Then maybe I can earn something more concrete.

"People might think it's unusual but my conscience would be playing on me if that happened.

"I would feel bad if I had signed and then fell down.

"The security for the family would be great but I totally understand why the deal is as long as it is.

"If I did break down I'd feel I had conned the club out of something I didn't really merit.

"I signed the last deal and it must have been a month later that I got quite a serious injury in my groin.

Wanted "And then they signed another right-back, Adam Matthews, who is being spoken of pretty highly.

"Hopefully he can be a good player for Celtic but when you see another guy arriving in your position you think it might spell the end for you.

"The manager was good enough to tell me it meant nothing, that he still wanted me to be here.

"We just had to get things ironed out and I fully believed him.

"He has been true to his word and came back two weeks ago to say we were ready to take things on. That was great news."
