Rangers: GVB must work his magic with Scott Wright

Rangers are enjoying a fantastic season in the Premiership as the Glasgow giants currently sit top of the table after 16 games.

The Gers have won 12 of those matches, drawing three and losing one, and they sit four points clear of their nearest rivals in second as it stands.

GVB magic

Despite their success on the pitch, one player who has had an underwhelming season at Ibrox so far is Scott Wright. He has struggled to nail down a regular place in the side and has found game-time hard to come by under Steven Gerrard and now Van Bronckhorst.

Will Wright come good at Rangers?

Yes

No

The Dutchman now needs to work his magic to get Wright’s season back on track and turn him into a player capable of making the difference in the Premiership, having failed to do so thus far. In the league this season, the 24-year-old has made nine appearances (three starts) and produced one goal and zero assists as a wide midfielder.

As per SofaScore, he has lost possession of the ball 64 times this season, which averages out at 7.1 times per match, and has lost 56% of his duels on the pitch, winning just 1.9 battles per game. This shows how he has been a lightweight for the Gers in the top flight with his regular loss of possession, along with his struggles with the physical side of the game.

The fact that he also has just one goal contribution in nine games adds to the disappointment of the £5.6k-per-week dud’s season so far. However, all is not lost for him as he has plenty of time on his hands to turn it around and make a name for himself in Glasgow.

At the age of 24, he has room to develop and is far from the finished article. This means that Van Bronckhorst has the opportunity to work his magic with him on the training pitch to mould him into the perfect winger for his 4-2-3-1 system.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

Wright showed a glimpse of what he can do in a cameo against Dundee over the weekend. As per SofaScore, he completed two of his three attempted dribbles and won three of his four duels, although he failed to translate that into providing a key pass or a shot on goal.

This is where the 43-year-old can step in and help him in training to develop his end product and teach him how to make better decisions when he gets into good areas in the final third. If Van Bronckhorst can do that and turn him into a quality option for the Gers, it would be a terrific piece of coaching from the Dutchman.
