Rangers speedster spotted in training as Europa League debut eyed against Antwerp

Recent Rangers signing Scott Wright featured in a training gallery released by the club on Wednesday as he eyes a Europa League debut against Royal Antwerp.

Wright joined the Gers from Aberdeen on deadline day, having already signed a pre-contract deal earlier in the transfer window.

The 23-year-old has bolstered Steven Gerrard’s options in the final third, after the loan departures of Jordan Jones and Brandon Barker to Sunderland and Oxford United respectively.

He made his debut as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Hamilton less than a week after his arrival and impressed Gers supporters during his brief cameo with a number of nice touches.

The former Scotland youth international made his second appearance off the bench in the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Saturday and now he’s eyeing a first-ever outing in the Europa League proper.

Wright was added to the Gers’ squad for the knockout stages of the competition shortly after his arrival and he was snapped taking part in training before the group left for Belgium on Wednesday.

He can be spotted in both the training video and photo gallery and looked in high spirits.

Wright is highly unlikely to start the game, with another 10-15 minute cameo off the bench perhaps the best he can realistically hope for.

However, the chance to play European football was likely one of the things that attracted him to a move to Ibrox and he’ll no doubt be keen to make an impact if he gets an opportunity.

Fellow new arrival Jack Simpson also took part in training and is eligible, but it’s less likely that he will feature at the Bosuilstadion, given that he’s yet to make his Rangers debut.
