Revealed: Which Rangers players could head to Aberdeen as Steven Gerrard discusses Scott Wright deal
Speaking ahead of the Gers’ clash with Motherwell on Sunday the Light Blues boss revealed that a pre-contract arrangement was close to being completed but admitted he would be keen to get a deal done ahead of the summer if possible – and he could send Jordan Jones or Greg Stewart to Pittodrie as a sweetener.
Gerrard said: "There are different options. There's a possibility of one of our players going the other way.
"If a deal can be done in this window, then that would be a bonus and a boost to us.
"If something can be done, then great. If not, the priority for me is to get it tied up for next season. But we are extremely close in terms of having it done for the summer."
Gerrard also suggested that the £350,000 deal taking versatile midfielder Ross McCrorie from Ibrox to the Granite City in the summer could be shaken up as part of any deal involving Wright.
The Scotland Under-21 captain has made 19 appearances for the Dons and is set to make his loan deal permanent at the end of the season.
Gerrard added: “There is a possibility of cash up front and I don't know where the McCrorie deal lies in terms of what needs to be done and what doesn't.
“Things are progressing well in terms of trying to get it tied up for next season. I think that's the priority.”
