Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has confirmed that the Rangers are interested in winger Scott Wright.

The 23-year-old Dons forward is out of contract at the end of the season.

McInnes spoke with Gers boss Steven Gerrard following the Light Blues’ 2-1 win at Pittodrie on Sunday.

He said: “There has been a conversation at the boardroom level.

“I spoke to Steven yesterday, he called me to say that they would be interested in Scott with a previous contract and that they wanted to do things right.

“That is not always the case when it comes to players who are left without a contract. We appreciate that the Rangers came through the front door and did things right.”

McInnes added: “I resigned myself to Scott leaving anyway.

“We made our first offer to Scott in the first week of October and we have never had any encouragement from Scott or his agent.

“They never gave us the opportunity to make a counter offer, so I have resigned myself in the last few months that he will most likely leave at the end of the season and nothing has changed about that.

“I think there is more than one club interested, but nevertheless, Rangers they have illustrated that they have an interest in Scott and that they could pre-contract with Scott, really at any time. “

McInnes continued: “We don’t want to lose Scott, he’s a key member of the team, as you know, and he has been this season.

“So we are disappointed to lose him at the end of the season.

“If we get a good offer, from the Rangers or whoever, it is up to the board to weigh it, to see, like any of our players, if it is a chance for Scott to move on before the end of the season. “
