Rangers, the runaway Premiership leaders, are closing in on their first league crown in a decade and have maintained an unbeaten run so far including two massive wins over Old Firm rivals Celtic. The business they have done under Steven Gerrard deserves accolades and according to Sky Sports, the Glasgow giants are aiming a January swoop for Aberdeen star Scott Wright to bolster their attacking third furthermore.
Having progressed through the youth setup of the Dons, the 23-year-old former Scotland youth international has enjoyed a starting status this season under Derek McInnes. But he has decided to move on this summer upon expiration of his current deal and the Gers, keen on roping him in, are now eligible to tie the attacker down on pre-contract terms.
A New Dimension To Rangers’ Attack
Although the Bears have plenty of depth and variety high up the pitch, Wright’s expertise as a ‘number 10’ would introduce a new dimension to their attack. Ianis Hagi, viewed as a midfield attacker initially, was eventually shifted to a wider role. The likes of Brandon Barker, Jordan Jones and Greg Stewart are there to challenge and cover the first-team stars but have only settled in down the flanks. A preferred front trio of Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe might require a creative spark from behind against the deep-defending outfits and the Scotsman, with his high work ethics and directness, must have impressed the gaffer enough to earn an Ibrox switch.
Rangers’ Answer To Celtic’s Masterstroke With Turnbull?
Fans might disagree, but their bitter rivals Celtic have indeed struck gold with David Turnbull. The former Motherwell prodigy has been a revelation for his vision as well as scoring traits and the Bhoys now have an outright midfield attacker capable of emulating the early success of Tom Rogic from behind the two-man frontline of Leight Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard. The Aussie playmaker has been a shadow of his earlier and is now a fringe option with rare starts these days.
Wright, meanwhile, is someone who is confident with the ball on his feet, makes down the middle runs, operates in the advanced areas and links up with smart one-twos, quick movements and swift footwork. He has the potential to find the net or set the goals up more often in an attacking gameplan and having him this month for a minuscule figure would help him grow his game and grab a key status from the next season onwards.
