Scott Wright’s confirmed he’s leaving, only 12 hours after Michael Beale effectively claimed otherwise in another example of how Rangers’ manager really doesn’t like to reveal the truth too enthusiastically.
Now, this isn’t a smear on Beale – we don’t actually care if he fabricates nonsense into the press, just as long as his Rangers team wins. That’s what he will get judged on, but actual bare-faced brass neckery that Beale has in spouting half-baked truths is rather amusing at times.
Last night Beale admitted Wright was struggling for game time, and that he might speak to ‘one or two people’ about that, with ‘nothing guaranteed on that one’ – but this is literally our manager’s speak for ‘yes, he’s off, and he’ll be holding the new scarf within a day or two’.
As for Wright, he left this morning, getting the flight to the steaming hot climes of the Mediterranean and sealing the deal on his transfer to Pendikspor saying thus:
Now in Beale’s defence, Wright is technically agreeing with him – that he does just want to ‘see what it’s like out there’ but the reality is he’ll sign the deal and we all know this.
It’s a great move, to a decent club in a major European league, and we’d have thought the best he’d do was League One! He’s landed on his feet and we will be interested in how he does out there.
We wish him the best in his new career.
