Style of Play
The 'cool-headed' Peter Wilson was a talented right-half who spent eleven seasons as a Celt. An exquisite passer of the ball, Wilson was a calm and calculated player who would survey his surroundings before setting up a Celtic attack with another inch perfect pass. To define his talent, it was said once that "Peter Wilson didn't pass the ball, he stroked it". He was heralded as a very fine player, and was said to have a "cool style", "easy-oasy", and was a "carpet artist".

He was an excellent reader of the game and although his style was unhurried he was an exceptionally quick thinking player who could see and create a chance in the blink of an eye. Season 1925/26 is likely his best time, aided by the wonderful McStay & McFarlane in defence. Notably, despite the lack of success for the club through much of his tenure at Celtic, he himself is actually exempt from much of the criticism from the time which is a reflection of his quality.
