Rangers should unleash “clever” £540k-rated ace, he could be Gerrard’s game-changer - opinion

  Rangers should unleash “clever” £540k-rated ace, he could be Gerrard’s game-changer - opinion Rangers take on Cove Rangers in the Scottish Cup on Sunday and Steven Gerrard should consider starting Scott Wright.The 23-year-old, who joined from Aberdeen in the winter, has been limited to just seven substitute appearances for the Light Blues so far in his Rangers career, and he deserves a chance to show what he can do on Sunday.

Rangers take on their Old Firm rivals at Ibrox in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Sunday, and Steven Gerrard should consider handing a start to Scott Wright.

The 23-year-old was surprisingly left on the bench for the 2-1 win against Hibernian last time out, despite being one of the star performers in the 4-0 win against Cove Rangers the previous week.

Wright has looked very bright in his cameo appearances for Rangers since joining from Aberdeen in February, most notably in the Europa League win against Royal Antwerp, where a late run earned Gerrard’s side a penalty.

Gerrard could be dealt huge Rangers blow over £4.05m-rated “class act” this summer - opinion

  Gerrard could be dealt huge Rangers blow over £4.05m-rated “class act” this summer - opinion Steven Gerrard could be set to lose Glen Kamara this summer after it was revealed that Arsenal are keen on signing the Finland international.According to GiveMeSport, Arsenal are one of a number of Premier League clubs taking an interest in the midfielder as a result of his superb performances in Gerrard’s side this season.

He was handed his first start for the club in the win against League One side Cove Rangers in the last round and impressed with his performance, but he failed to appear in last weekend’s win over Hibs at Ibrox.

Former Rangers boss Alex McLeish has suggested that Gerrard may well have been saving him for the cup tie at Ibrox this weekend, so perhaps we will see him make a rare appearance.

Wright impressed against the Hoops earlier in the season with Aberdeen as he came off the bench to great effect in their 3-3 draw at Pittodrie. Derek McInnes was full of praise for him after that game, saying: “When he came on, what a reaction. He (Wright) was terrific.

“I gave him a special mention in the dressing room there because I don’t think we could’ve got the result without him. That shows how important he is and he needs to feel that importance.”

No goals in 4 apps: Gerrard failed to unleash in-demand £52m beast at Rangers in 2018 - opinion

  No goals in 4 apps: Gerrard failed to unleash in-demand £52m beast at Rangers in 2018 - opinion Umar Sadiq enjoyed a difficult loan spell at Rangers in 2018 but is now wanted by Real Madrid, suggesting that Steven Gerrard failed to get the best out of him.Sadiq joined the Gers on loan from Roma in the summer of 2018 but was promptly sent back to the Serie A side in December after failing to impress Gerrard with his performances.

The 23-year-old robbed Shane Duffy of the ball for Aberdeen’s late equaliser, and whilst the on-loan Brighton man hasn’t featured since February, Wright will be hoping to cause the Hoops’ defenders similar problems in a Rangers shirt.

Although Wright is arguably yet to start a game as big as this in his career, the Old Firm derby represents the ideal opportunity for Gerrard to test his January signing and see what he is really made of ahead of next season, when hopefully he will be much more of a first team regular at Ibrox.
