Barry Ferguson impressed by Scott Wright's performances

Ferguson echoed the Rangers managers’ sentiments in his column for The Daily Record.

The Rangers TV pundit wrote, “Superhuman Scott Wright is the Rangers ray of light and why I’m not worried about this season.

“There’s a real player in there. Wright has ability on the ball, he has an eye for a goal and he has a strong workrate.

“Gerrard said he played with no ego and that is about being selfless for the side.”

Some player

Wright has started the season in fine form and a large chunk of the Ibrox faithful will surely have been taken aback by his performances.

He’s looked unnerved, dangerous and composed each time he’s stepped onto the field of play and his inclusion in the playing eleven will no longer cause a surprise as he seems to be a player whom Gerrard admires and trusts a great deal.

Last season he did not particularly set the world alight at Aberdeen and many believed that his future at the Ibrox was short-lived.

However, he’s come back to Glasgow and silenced his critics with his hard work on and off the pitch and has given the likes of Ferguson and many Rangers fans some reason to be excited about after a disastrous start to this season.

We’re hoping to see him get a few more starts in the coming games especially if the likes of Ryan Kent are continuing to underperform.
