Partick Thistle manager Ian McCall has provided a positive injury update on impressive Rangers loanee Kieran Wright.
The 21-year-old has faced plenty of challenges over the course of this season, not least a two-month enforced break due to the suspension of all leagues below the Championship.
He has been a standout player for the Jags, though, winning the Player of the Month award for November [PTFC.co.uk] and keeping clean sheets in seven of his 14 appearances.
Wright’s efforts were recently recognised by Rangers in the form of a contract extension [Rangers.co.uk] but he’s missed Thistle’s last three matches with a thigh problem.
He returned to his parent club for a scan but it seems that no extensive damage was discovered.
“I left him out about a week and a half ago because of his thigh, then we played him at Dundee United and it’s strained,” McCall told reporters following a win over Clyde at Firhill on Tuesday night.
“I just spoke to him there and he thinks he might just be another week to ten days, which is great news.”
Wright has previously played on loan at Gala Fairydean Rovers, Albion Rovers, Raith Rovers and Alloa Athletic and is now under contract at Ibrox until the summer of 2023.
Thistle only have six matches remaining in their season and fixtures are coming thick and fast right now, so the Scotland youth international will be keen to get back involved as soon as possible, as he will be key if they are to secure promotion back to the Championship either as League One champions or through the playoffs.
A fellow Rangers loanee had to be subbed off in an EFL clash on Tuesday with a suspected knee problem.
