Scott Wright has changed his mind again on his move to Turkey, and having initially rejected it, a rethink has seen a bit of toing and froing and as things stand, he will remain a Rangers player.
Wright did explain his family situation meant their opinion mattered and his move had to be right for them, and while he said he wanted to put himself out of his comfort zone, his family rejected Pendikspor entirely.
After discussions, there was something of a change of heart, and he was more open to the idea, but further conversations have once again seen another switch and as things stand, Wright (or his family) isn’t interested in switching to Turkey permanently.
Which means once again Rangers have far too much surplus on the wage bill – Wright, Sakala and even Kemar Roofe are not Michael Beale’s flavour of the month, with the manager signing four new attackers entirely with a view to changing the system totally, and none of those three are said to be a big part of that now.
But Wright’s escape route is unlikely to be Turkey unless they change their minds yet again and decide to go for it after all.
Wright is absolutely not part of Michael Beale’s plans going forward, Beale moving away from wingers and centralising play significantly, and Wright will definitely require to find a new club.
But as things stand, he and his family are reluctant to make that new club Turkey-based so we’ll just have to wait to see if any UK-based offers come in for him.
