'I Know He Wants To Play For Gerrard' - Exclusive: Pundit on Sky's Rangers transfer reveal

Aberdeen attacker Scott Wright will want to move to Rangers and play under Steven Gerrard, according to Frank McAvennie.

The former Celtic and St Mirren striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, expects that the “very good” 23-year-old will be available for a nominal fee in this transfer window.

Sky Sports claim that the Gers will make an approach for the Aberdeen forward in January regarding a move to Ibrox.

The runaway league leaders are said to want to complete a deal for the former Scotland Under-21 international this month, rather than in the summer.

Wright is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to agree on the terms of a new deal with Derek McInnes’ side.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Wright’s potential exit from Pittodrie, McAvennie said: “Wright is a very good player but he has not set the world alight for me.

“I do not know how much he would cost but I could not imagine he would cost a lot of money.

“What I do know is that he would want to play for Steven Gerrard. Whoever comes in now will want to know how long Gerrard is going to be there.”  

Wright has spent his entire career at Aberdeen, bar a brief loan spell at Dundee FC in 2019.

His 16 appearances across all competitions this season have yielded two goals and five assists.
