Miller backs Rangers board to take action to avoid 'unnecessary distraction' for 23y/o

Willie Miller has claimed that Scott Wright staying at Aberdeen until the summer will be an “unnecessary distraction” before his move to Rangers.

The Bears announced the pre-contract signing of the playmaker on Monday, who will complete his switch to Ibrox at the end of this season.

Miller claimed that the best option would be for Steven Gerrard and the Gers to get the deal over the line before the end of next week.

Writing in his Evening Express column, Miller claimed that Rangers and Aberdeen could be set to solve this at board level this week.

“Wright could still join the Gers this month and for me, that would be the best option for all parties if a deal can be done,” he wrote.

“Aberdeen are set to pay £350,000 for Ross McCrorie in the summer, so there may be some scope within that deal when it comes to Wright potentially moving this month.

“It’s a matter to be dealt with at board level and in these difficult financial times for clubs, it would make sense for the Dons if a deal can be wrapped up this month.

“If the Scotland Under-21 international does remain at Pittodrie, where he is going next can be an unnecessary distraction in the background.”

This would be the best possible outcome for all parties.

Wright would get the chance to join Rangers during this incredible run, and also play his part in lifting 55 before starting his first full season in the next campaign.

The Glasgow Evening Times recently claimed that there had been “no developments” over talks to bring Wright to Ibrox this month.

We can’t see this move being brought forward unless there are quick changes in the next handful of days, but with the Hibernian clash tomorrow – sights are all on Easter Road.
