Rangers are said to be interested in an approach for out-of-contract Aberdeen winger Scott Wright.

The Dons academy product has six months to go on his Pittodrie deal and has made it known to those at the club that he wants to assess his options. Rangers are now looking to snap him up quick according to reports.

It has been suggested that Steven Gerrard’s team want to sign the talented winger on a pre-contract basis, but Rangers may look to get a deal over the line this month. Derek McInnes has already stated there will be no incomings at Pittodrie this transfer window.

A product of the Aberdeen academy, Wright has had to fight injury and other things to cement himself in the Pittodrie XI. He spent a spell out on loan at Dundee in the 2018/19 season before a bad knee injury last campaign.

Overall he has made 75 appearances in the north-east with seven goals and 11 assists, two and five of those coming this term where he has really shone in McInnes’ XI with regular starts.

It would be a hammer blow for Pittodrie fans to lose yet another player to old rivals Rangers, Ryan Jack the latest to move from Aberdeen to Rangers a few seasons ago while Ross McCrorie went the other way earlier this term on a loan basis, which will be made permanent in the summer.
