Greg Stewart’s imminent exit to Aberdeen got a stage closer yesterday after the Rangers forward followed the Dons’ social media again, having unfollowed previously.
Strongly spoken of as being part of the Scott Wright deal, the 30 year old forward hasn’t worked out at Ibrox, akin to the way Kyle Lafferty didn’t, and will move onto pastures familiar when the Wright deal is concluded, likely to be before the end of this window on an immediate transfer.
His performances for Rangers were never poor, but he was evidently nowhere near of the standard required at Ibrox, and he was only useful as squad depth.
His Rangers time in numbers:
29 appearances, 3 goals and 6 assists. Just 800 minutes played in approaching 2 years. Not the numbers he can be especially proud of, but he can say he played for the club he loves, and we do know he’s very much one of us.
Stewart will be a makeweight for incoming winger/attacker Scott Wright, and the Dons know what they’re getting – but he’s never produced his Dundee and Killie form for any ‘bigger’ club, including Birmingham and Aberdeen as well as the Famous.
So we wish him well of course, and close the book on that particular chapter.
