SCOTT WRIGHT reckons the advice from his fellow Ibrox forwards will help him hit the goal trail for Rangers this term.

The 23-year-old opened his account for Steven Gerrard's side in the draw with St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park in April.

And he got off and running for the new campaign on Saturday as the champions beat Livingston to begin their title defence in style.

Boss Gerrard can also call on the likes of Jermain Defoe, Cedric Itten and Fashion Sakala this term and Wright is confident that attacking talent will bring out the best in him.

Wright told RangersTV: "It was a fantastic feeling for me. I’ve worked really hard since I’ve come in this pre-season.

"I’m delighted it went in and it was great that we got the three points and the clean sheet. We have laid down a marker at the start of the season.

"JD is making that transition to coach now. Naturally he did it with me last season anyway, kind of pulling me aside and speaking to me about it.

"We’ve got great strikers here, with Cedri and Fashion and JD. There are so many boys who can help improve that side of my game.

"It's something I’ve been trying to add to my game - more goals and assists. The manager spoke to me at the start of the season and said it was something that he wanted from me.

"To get the shirt I’m wanting, I will need to add more goals and assists to my game. It’s something I'm looking to do.

"We’ve got to be patient. We know Livingston are always going to be a tough test.

"It’s just a sake of believing in the gameplan we’ve got, moving them from side to side waiting for them to break down.

"And when the opportunity comes up, we need to make sure we take it and I rethink we did that."
