Scott Wright could join Rangers in this window as Aberdeen open to early deal – Daily Record

Rangers have declared their interest in signing Aberdeen winger Scott Wright.

The Premiership leaders told the Dons after Sunday’s Pittodrie clash they intended to open pre-contract talks with the 23-year-old.

Steven Gerrard’s side, who are also keen on KV Oostende striker Fashion Sakala, will open talks over a move that could take him to Ibrox on a free transfer, come the summer.

But Aberdeen believe a deal could still be struck in this window, which could include a fee or possible player swap.

The Dons are already due Rangers around £350,000 for the signing of Ross McCrorie, which is payable this summer.

Wright had knocked back a new contract and told Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes that he wanted to keep his options.

It is a blow to Aberdeen as Wright has come through their youth ranks.

Wright, who has previously had a loan at Dundee, has been in and out of the team and it has only really been this season he has nailed down a first-team berth.

Ryan Jack made the same move from Aberdeen to Rangers back in 2017.
