Rangers: Star player is expected to leave as Philippe Clement plans squad clearout

According to Derek Ferguson, Scott Wright is expected to part ways with Rangers as manager Philippe Clement plans a significant overhaul of the squad during the upcoming summer break. The 26-year-old winger has struggled to secure a consistent place in the team since his transfer from Aberdeen and has been on the periphery under several managers.

Despite being advised by former coach Michael Beale to seek opportunities elsewhere last year, Wright chose to stay after discussions with Turkish club Pendikspor fell through. His commitment to fight for his position at Rangers was evident, but regular playtime eluded him until recent injuries within the squad provided an opening.

Wright’s performance against Benfica in the Europa League caught attention as he stepped up amid what some might call an injury crisis affecting fellow wingers Ross McCausland, Oscar Cortes, and Dujon Sterling. Despite this opportunity and contributing well when called upon, Ferguson doubts Wright’s long-term prospects at Rangers.

Ferguson shared with Ibrox News that while Wright showed potential and had moments of brilliance against Benfica, his overall contributions over the past few seasons haven’t solidified his standing within the club. Although he has earned medals and played pivotal roles off the bench during his tenure at Rangers, it seems unlikely that he will be part of Clement’s vision moving forward.

As Clement eyes fresh talent for a revamped lineup post-summer, Wright may find himself seeking new horizons where he can establish himself more firmly as a first-team player. While successful in certain aspects and valuable as a substitute, the future appears uncertain for Scott Wright at Rangers.
