Rangers signed Scott Wright in January and the winger has immediately impressed Steven Gerrard.

The Gers boss views Wright as a work in progress but he is already pleased with the application he has shown.

That is why he has handed him game time from the bench despite originally planning for the 23-year-old to come into the side next season.


As quoted by the Daily Record, Gerrard said: “He’s a project, Scott, and he’s one we’re getting ready for next season.

“But having said that we can still see his talent and we’re getting a contribution from him.

“He’s contributing really well at the moment and he’s on the verge of getting starts, for sure. I think that he has earned that.

“He’s been a breath of fresh air. He’s a great kid and he wants to learn, improve and grow. He’s been an absolute dream.”


Perfect attitude

Rangers have been superb on the pitch this season so it is encouraging that our transfer work in Janaury also seems to have gone well.

Wright is young and eager to prove himself at Ibrox – that is exactly what we want to see from a player in his position.

He is showing all the right characteristics and if he keeps it up he should get a start soon.

The title is almost wrapped up so we think Wright should get a chance after the Celtic match, particularly as we face a busy schedule with the Slavia Prague tie coming up.

Wright offers us something a little different with his direct style, and Barry Ferguson suggests he has the arrogance to succeed with us.

It seems he has kept players on their toes since arriving and that may be why we have seen a rejuvenated Joe Aribo in recent weeks.

Now Wright must maintain the levels he has shown and hopefully we see his impact on the pitch over the forthcoming games.
