Playing career[edit]


Wright started his career with Aberdeen and made nearly 150 league appearances for the Dons before joining Rangers for £1.5m in 1995. Much of his time at Ibrox was spent injured and after just seven league appearances in three years, Wright had a loan spell with Wolverhampton Wanderers before joining Bradford City in 1998. Two years with the Bantams preceded another two with Dundee United, before Wright finished his career in 2002 with a short spell at Scunthorpe United.


Wright won two international caps, in March and May 1993.


Wright joined Dunfermline Athletic as first-team coach in January 2008, moving from his youth coaching role at Rangers.[2] He currently coaches with Fife Elite Football Academy in Scotland.[1]
