Everyone at Rangers has been left raving over Scott Wright’s technical ability since his move from Aberdeen, according to Alan Hutton.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defende revealed while the 23-year-old is already catching the eye at Auchenhowie and settling well into the dressing room.
Wright, who had signed a pre-contract deal to join Rangers this summer, arrived at Ibrox early on transfer deadline day and made his debut as a substitute against Hamilton on Sunday.
A versatile attacker, Wright played 20 times across all competitions for Aberdeen during the first half of the season, although he was sidelined between November and December with a hernia problem.
Hutton, who is best friends with the likes of Gers goalkeeper Allan McGregor and is well connected at his old club, has revealed the new arrival has been impressing on the training ground with his technical quality.
Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge: “Obviously it takes time to settle in, you’re not going to come into a dressing room – especially not at Rangers, with how well they’re playing – and be the focal point.
“At the moment it’s all about just settling in and just getting to meet them really, adjust to the way they play, as well as how he plays so it’s going to take a bit of time.
“Obviously he’s technically very good, from what I hear everybody says the same thing. Yes, he came on (v Hamilton) but you can’t judge him off that performance – we saw he had some nice touches.
“I think he definitely suits the way Rangers are trying to play at the moment, it’s like two number 10s in there to get on the ball, pockets of space, turn and make things happen for your striker.
“He more suits that sort of position more than I think Kent does so I think there will be opportunities for him moving forward.
“Obviously we’ve seen enough from him at Aberdeen to know he’s a good player and what he brings to the party so I’m sure he’ll fit in but it takes a little bit of time.”
