Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has revealed he has not had any further contact with Rangers regarding signing Scott Wright this month.
Light Blues boss Steven Gerrard said he was keen on bringing in the 23-year-old during the January transfer window but McInnes says the Dons have yet to receive a satisfactory offer for the player:
“As far as I’m concerned, both myself and the chairman have had no other contact from Rangers since the start of the week. They’ve made it clear Scott’s a player they want to work with for next season and if they want to work with him for the rest of this season clearly it has to be a good offer.”
“But until that’s the case then we stay as we are, he’s our player. It would be good if we can get it resolved but if not we’ve got to stay as we are. I’ll keep getting asked the question but there’s been no further dialogue other than their initial approach.”
Wright’s is out of contract in the summer so the Gers can also talk to the player directly about moving on a free transfer at the end of the season. At this moment in time, it does seem like a pre-contract agreement is more likely than a move this month.
Rangers do have previous, in terms of signing players nearing the end of contracts. They paid £50,000 to Dundee for Glen Kamara two years ago, although it is likely that Aberdeen are demanding a fair amount more for Wright, despite him being inside the last six months of his current deal at Pittodrie.
