Wright is giving Gerrard a serious 'headache' at Rangers - Hutton

Scott Wright has given Steven Gerrard a serious headache after impressing for Rangers this week, according to Alan Hutton.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender insisted the 23-year-old is pushing for a regular starting role at Ibrox.

The winger rifled a shot home after coming on as a substitute in the Gers’ 3-0 win over Livingston on Saturday.

He was also a standout performer in Rangers’ 2-1 Champions League qualifying defeat to Malmo on Tuesday.

Wright joined from Aberdeen in January but has only made three starts for Steven Gerrard’s men so far.

However, Rangers TV pundit Hutton insisted his performances had given Gerrard a dilemma in attack.

He told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “He’s a top-quality player that’s ready and willing to come in and show he’s ready for Steven Gerrard.

“Managers want that headache, with teammates pushing each other all the way to play in the starting XI. Ultimately, that’s when you get your best performances when you’re under pressure.

“For Scott Wright the big thing for him this season was to create more chances and to score goals.

“That’s what he did on Saturday, it was an incredible finish from him to get that second goal and get Rangers on their way.

“Gerrard will have a headache especially if Hagi is fit as well. It just depends which player he chooses on the night.”

Wright signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Rangers in January after spending seven years with Aberdeen.

He has played 15 times for the club, with two goals and two assists to his name.
