Rangers star Scott Wright has told how veteran Ibrox player/coach Jermain Defoe has been working with him to try and add more goals and assists to his game after the Ibrox wideman netted in yesterday’s 3-0 win over Livingston at Ibrox.

Wright was an early substitute for the injured Ianis Hagi and made it 2-0 to Rangers with a delightful strike using the outside of his right boot that left Livi keeper Max Stryjek no chance.

The former Aberdeen ace is a big favourite with fans and hopes he can take his opportunities when they come his way after impressing yesterday, telling Rangers TV: “More goals and assists is something that I’ve wanted to add to my game this season.

“JD [Jermain Defoe] is making that transition into a coach this season but naturally helped me with that last season and there are so many boys within the team that can help me improve that side of my game also.

“It’s just the sake of believing in the game plan that we’ve got and when the opportunity comes up that we take it, and we did that today.”

Wright has now put himself in contention to start against Malmo on Tuesday night as Rangers get their Champions League qualifying bid started.

Suspension and injury means Gerrard is likely to be without Kemar Roofe and Ianis Hagi in Sweden, handing the chance to Wright to shine.

Another goal from the ex-Aberdeen star would go a long way with the Rangers fans and help take the Light Blues a step closer to a European windfall.
