Rangers new boy putting seasoned starters to shame

As we hinted in an earlier piece, one player who impressed us greatly on his arrival was the busy Scott Wright.

Hardly a marquee signing, and barely really known only a few months ago, the attacking midfielder finds himself in a blue shirt under the lights of Govan.

And isn’t he keen to prove this unexpected chance with a huge club, the biggest moment of his career and the highest he’ll ever get to in the game.

Scott Wright has been given a gigantic chance to show the world what a player he is, and if his two cameos so far are anything to go by, he’s taking the bull by the horns and he’s going to work like a dog to prove himself.

His industry, effort, movement and workrate were of a level of a player who wants to succeed for this team, a player who can’t believe his luck and is determined to make the most of it.

In just 14 minutes, he got 14 touches, and made 6 passes, all of which hit their mark.

That effort, that drive to make a success of this move is refreshing, and seeing a young player desperate to show his worth is exactly what Steven Gerrard will be expecting.

Frankly Wright put to shame a number of the starters, particularly the meek Kent and Aribo whose contributions were modest at best.

We hope to see more of Wright, and we imagine we will.

Especially if the starters continue to play with this level of modesty.

  1. Wright impresses me a lot he’s hungry to succeed he’s a little like Jack in that manner who came to the Famous to become a 100% better player . I like his positive running and drive . Pay attention Kent Aribo . Kent especially . I hope he gets a full start soon . .
