Aberdeen attacker Scott Wright might not be at the club next season. Rangers are interested in signing the player. They have already contacted him about moving to Ibrox on a pre-contract agreement. It remains to be seen if the player agrees to join Rangers, and if he does when he will move.
One man who has had his say on the situation is Aberdeen legend Willie Miller. He believes that even if Wright agrees to join Rangers, he still has a part to play for the Dons if he is still at the club for the rest of the season.
“As positive as possible”
“All Aberdeen can really do is try to make the environment as positive as they can and hope Wright is persuaded to sign a new contract” he said (Evening Express).
“But once a player has made the decision to try his luck elsewhere, attention also turns to the recruitment and finding a replacement.
“Wright can still have an impact on the pitch during the remainder of the season and the Dons youth academy graduate still has a lot ahead of him” Miller concluded.
Easier decision with no fans
In a way it could be easier for Aberdeen to make this decision as there are no fans at Pittodrie. If Wright had agreed to move to Rangers whilst fans were still at games, there might have been a reaction from the support.
However, with no fans in attendance, Wright can play for Aberdeen after agreeing to join Rangers. He won’t get booed, for example.
Also, Derek McInnes might consider the player so important that he needs to be kept at the club for the rest of the season. Only time will tell.
