Scott Wright Breaks Rangers Transfer Exit Silence

Scott Wright has shared his excitement about his upcoming move to Turkish top-flight side Pendikspor, emphasizing that he harbors no regrets regarding his time at Rangers. As he prepares to embark on talks with the Turkish club after an agreed-upon fee, the 25-year-old expressed his eagerness to explore the facilities and negotiate personal terms as he assesses his options in the Super Lig.

Despite his notable contribution to last year’s Scottish Cup Final victory over Hearts with a goal, Wright only managed to make five starts for the Light Blues in the 2022/23 season. Consequently, he believes that a parting of ways is in the best interest of both parties, following a sincere discussion with manager Michael Beale. Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports Scotland, Wright stated, “It gives me a chance to go and play regular football. I had some conversations with Michael Beale just to try and play a wee bit more and we came to the conclusion that it’s maybe best for me to move on. The club has obviously agreed a fee and I’ll go out and have a look and see what I think.”

Acknowledging that his impending move presents a step into the unknown, Wright expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity to challenge himself. He remarked, “Is it a step into the unknown? Yeah, definitely. You’ve always got to test yourself. It’s an opportunity that excites me and one I’m looking forward to looking into. There are plenty of options that I need to weigh up, and it’s a decision that I’m going to have to make with my family and my wife, but one I’m looking forward to and see what’s out there for me and make that decision.”

When questioned about his limited game time at Ibrox, Wright acknowledged the competitive nature of the squad while refraining from making excuses for himself. He expressed his support for the team’s progress and shared his positive outlook, stating, “Yeah, it’s always tough. I don’t want to make excuses for myself, but it’s a fantastic squad at Rangers, and I wish them the best. Michael Beale is building a fantastic squad, and we’ll see what happens.”

Wright concluded by expressing his deep appreciation for his time at Rangers and the significant milestones he achieved with the club. Reflecting on his dreams as a young player, he emphasized his satisfaction with playing in prestigious competitions such as the Champions League and the Europa League, as well as his joy in winning the Scottish Cup and league titles. He expressed, “I have absolutely no regrets. I’ve absolutely loved my time there, and Rangers will always have a special place in my heart. I achieved some things there that I dreamt of when I was growing up; playing in the Champions League, the Europa League, and obviously winning the Scottish Cup and league was fantastic for myself. So, no absolutely regrets.”

Scott Wright’s departure from Rangers marks the beginning of a new chapter in his footballing journey. While bidding farewell to his former club with gratitude and appreciation, he eagerly anticipates the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in Turkey’s Super Lig.
