According to the Glasgow TimesThe Glasgow Rangers are reportedly interested in signing Scott Wright from Aberdeen in a move that may have Greg Stewart go in the opposite direction.
Which is the word?
The reports have emerged Over the past week, the Rangers are itching to land the 5-foot-7 dynamo with Steven Gerrard’s team looking toward a pre-contract deal for the winger.
It is claimed that the Gers might be willing to propose a exchange deal that would make Wright move to Ibrox and Stewart head to Pittodrie.
The Light Blues boss is believed to be a fan of the former Scottish Under-21 international’s talents as he seeks to further strengthen his squad in a bid to stop Celtic from ten in a row.
Sensational exchange offer?
There is still a long way to go and the deal is far from done, but one feels that if Ross Wilson can somehow pull it off, it would be an absolute steal to trade Stewart for a player of Wright’s quality.
The 30-year-old man has been in Ibox since 2019, but he has yet to play a match for the club this year as he has fallen further down the pecking order behind newcomers Cedric Itten and Kemar Roofe.
Ahead of him, Gerrard has a great deal of attacking talent and now more strength in depth as well. However, while you can’t find many holes on Gerrard’s side, if there is an area that needs to be addressed, it is the open options, as reserve wingers Brandon Barker and Jordan Jones are simply not fit for purpose.
Between them, the pair has only contributed to three goals in all competitions and has been limited to 16 appearances in total this season, through Transfer market, which implies that they lack real momentum in attack.
Wright, on the other hand, has been in such good shape for Derek McInnes’s team so far this season, having contributed seven goals in 16 appearances in all competitions for himself, through Transfer market, which suggests that it would offer much more threat in the last third than the aforementioned duo.
The idea of Rangers switching from a striker struggling to stay fit, which has been heavily linked with Ibrox’s departure, to a younger player who has recently been described as “a very orderly player” by the club legend . Alex McLeish it’s definitely a no-brainer.
From Aberdeen’s perspective, we can’t understand it, but Wilson should laugh all the way to the bank if he manages to pull off this masterstroke of a deal.
