Steven Gerrard waxes lyrical about Rangers star who is an ‘absolute dream’

Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on new recruit Scott Wright during an interview with the Daily Record and claims the recent addition is a project for Rangers.

The Teddy Bears paid £200,000 to take him to Aberdeen early after he signed a pre-contract with the club last month.

Wright has played three times for his new club as they close in on a first Scottish Premiership title in 10 years.

Gerrard has worked wonders during his time in charge of the Ibrox-based club and his recruitment has largely been spot on.

Now, he has claimed that Wright will be viewed as a project for the club moving into next season.

 

He told the Daily Record: “He’s been a breath of fresh air. He’s a great kid and he wants to learn. To be honest, he’s been an absolute dream.

“Scott is a project and he’s one we’re getting ready for next season.”

TBR View: Wright versatility could be key for Rangers

At Aberdeen, Wright played in a number of advances positions and that could bode well for Rangers next season.

He can play as a No.10 and on either flank and he could be ideal for the Gers over the course of a long campaign.

Wright enjoyed a decent time of things at Pittodrie, scoring seven goals and registering 11 assists from his 79 appearances.

Gerrard will hope that with better players around him he could kick his career on and it’ll be interesting to see how he progresses.

More games could come for the 23-year-old between now and the end of the season and they’ll represent a good chance for him to get into his stride ahead of 2021/22.
