Career[edit]

After starting his career with semi-professional club Stranraer, he joined Kilmarnock in June 2005 on a free transfer.[1]

Wright quickly established himself in the Kilmarnock team, making 28 appearances in his first season at Rugby Park. He scored his first Kilmarnock goal in a 2–2 draw with Rangers in August 2006[2] and netted again the following month with an extra time free-kick in a 2–1 win against Livingston in the CIS Cup.[3] He was on target again in the CIS Cup in November, scoring twice in a 3–2 win over Motherwell in the quarter-finals.[4] These goals helped Kilmarnock reach the 2007 Scottish League Cup Final, which they lost to Hibernian.

On 3 June 2011 he left Kilmarnock to join fellow Scottish Premier League side St. Johnstone on a free transfer.[5] Wright made his debut on 23 July against Aberdeen on the opening day of the season.[6]

On 18 July 2013, Wright scored the winner in a 1–0 away win against Rosenborg in the Europa League, giving St Johnstone their first ever away win in a European competition.

On 17 February 2014, Wright agreed to sign a new one-and-a-half year contract with St. Johnstone.[7]
