Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes confirmed that Rangers were interested in Aberdeen forward Scott Wright but was tight-lipped about any January deal.

The 23-year-old’s contract is up at the end of the season and ex-Gers McInnes praised Steven Gerrard’s handling of the situation [BBC Sport].

But with one report suggesting the Dons could be open to a swap deal to allow the player to move this January [Daily Record], there is one ex-Don at Ibrox who may well fit the bill.

Rangers forward Greg Stewart has seen game time limited ever since joining Rangers last season and like Wright is entering the final six months of his contract.

Aberdeen will need to fill the void left by the wantaway attacker and with Stewart also devoid of game time in Glasgow, this could be the perfect fit.

 

There is no official suggestion this is being considered by either side but with those reports claiming a swap deal could be on the card, there’s arguably no player more suitable than Stewart.

Ex-Dundee man Stewart was on loan at Aberdeen via Birmingham City in the first half of 2019 and this was the last club the versatile forward played for before moving to Ibrox.

Derek McInnes is well aware of the talents Stewart possesses and with Aberdeen needing to fill the void left by Wright’s potential departure, this wouldn’t be the worst outcome.

However, one report is claiming that there could be another way that the Gers plan on completing the deal this January.
