The 34-year-old featured in the Champions League for Celtic, including when they famously beat Barcelona 2-1 at Celtic Park in 2012. Representing Nottingham Forest, Preston North End and Rotherham United in the Championship, Wilson may also play for Ilkeston, the club say.

Manager Martin Carruthers said: “Kelvin’s a top guy and a great player. He has achieved so much in the game and it’s fantastic that he wants to share his knowledge with us at Ilkeston.

“We have known him for several years and feel it’s a great opportunity for him to develop his coaching skills and see if coaching and management is where he sees himself in the next few years.”
