The youngster, who is yet to make a senior appearance for Rangers’ senior squad, left Ibrox at the start of January to join League One side Albion Rovers on an initial month long loan, before the club revealed he had extended his temporary spell until the end of the season via their official website in what was a deadline day deal.
He has turned out five times for his loan side since joining, although has not enjoyed the most successful of starts to his senior career with four defeats and a draw to his name, conceding 13 goals for the side sitting ninth in Scotland’s third tier.
Wright currently has senior stars Wes Foderingham, Jak Alnwick and Liam Kelly, as well as fellow youth goalkeepers Robby McCrorie and Lewis Muir, to battle for the number one shirt at Ibrox, but currently has just a handful of unused appearances for the club’s under-20 side under his belt.
