Aberdeen icon Willie Miller admits that it is “better” if Rangers target Scott Wright leaves Pittodrie “sooner rather than later” with the winger out of contract at the end of the season.
Both clubs have confirmed the Gers’ interest in bringing Wright to Ibrox with talks ongoing over a potential move, with reports suggesting Ross McCrorie’s fee for his move to Pittodrie could be used against the cost of luring Wright to Glasgow this month.
Miller feels that if Wright has already set his heart on leaving Pittodrie, it would be better to get a deal done that suits both sides now with the winger “destined” for Ibrox.
“Scott Wright seems destined to join Rangers and could leave Aberdeen this month or at the end of the season,” Miller said [Evening Express].
“My opinion is that if the attacker has decided he wants to move on, then it would be better that a deal is done sooner rather than later.
“A player swap deal has been mooted. Rangers could pay a fee or, with the Reds buying Ross McCrorie in the summer, a deal for Wright could be worked into that.
“I would rather the clubs could agree a deal which suits both of them in this window.”
Wright missed the 4-1 drubbing by Ross County at the weekend as the Dons were soundly beaten by the Staggies in Dingwall.
With Ryan Kent struggling for form on the left and Kemar Roofe and Ianis Hagi both doing well on the other side, Wright’s arrival would come at a good time for the Gers.
As they look to push on and secure the title as soon as possible, some reinforcement should help the Light Blues get over the line and celebrate 55.
