Rangers signing catches eye as ex-boss laments board-approved exit

As Rangers ran out 1-0 winners over Kilmarnock at Ibrox the club’s fans got the chance to see January signing and ex-Aberdeen star Scott Wright for the second time.

The tricky winger was given ten minutes plus injury time to leave an impression with the Ibrox supporters and certainly caught the eye.

Wright, 23, wasn’t scared to get on the ball and showed some neat touches and brave passes as Steven Gerrard’s side edged out the victory.

The club’s fans took to Twitter to praise the ex-Dons forward who also impressed in his brief cameo in the 1-1 draw with Hamilton:

Wright’s Ibrox debut also came whilst Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes claimed he wanted to keep the winger and that the Pittodrie board sanctioned the player’s move to Ibrox on deadline day.

The Dons have now gone five Scottish Premiership matches without a goal following their 0-0 draw with St Mirren with the pressure mounting behind the Aberdeen manager.

“Scott Wright leaving on the last day of the window; would I have wanted to keep him? Absolutely I wanted to keep him,” said McInnes [Daily Record].

“I would have because the boy was committed to us.

“It’s a board decision. There is money there to come in.

“So it was disappointing to lose him but I accept it. It’s not the first player I have lost through transfers.”

Wright’s transfer to Rangers has caused a bit of a stir in the northeast with the Aberdeen supporters subjecting the player to abuse for signing for their rivals.
