Rangers face multiple contract predicaments

Ranger’s face a dilemma as multiple players will be out of contract by the end of the season.

Glen Kamara has already signed a new deal with the club  and many will be relieved by the club’s decision to extend his stay.

Here are some of the players facing a possible exit, as the club is still weighing whether to renew their contracts or not.

Allan McGregor

Last season was undoubtedly one of the best for the keeper. The 39-year old’s class was pivotal in the defensive records Rangers achieved.

McGregor has served the club for a long spell now, but squad rotation this season could indicate his spell at the Ibrox is coming to an end.

After a couple of features in European football and an Old Firm debut, Robby McCrorie seems to be one for the future.

Jon McLaughlin

As McGregor is being phased out, it is safe to assume McLaughlin will be the club’s first choice next season because he is entering his prime years.

The 34-year-old has always performed well when called upon, and has a number of cleansheets to prove it.

Andy Firth

Every club needs a third-choice keeper. Despite lack of game time, Firth has a strong  and close relationship with the club’s fan base.

Even so, he will be in need for game time and that might hinder him from renewing his contract with the club.

Connor Goldson

The 28-year old’s contract dilemma has been going on for some time now. At his age, this might just be his last big contract.

He can commit to Rangers, and spend his prime years at Glasgow or he could be tempted to try the Premier League one more time.

Steven Davis

Like McGregor, Davis is enjoying a glorious sunset at the club and his succession plan has already begun.

John Lundstram’s improvement has decreased the heavy dependence on Davis which was evident last season.

Davis is still kicking it for club and country and this shows he can go beyond this season, however this depends on his performance throughout the entire campaign.

Scott Arfield

The 32-year-old enjoyed a spell of top form before pre-winter but now after just 360 minutes of featuring for Rangers, he has fallen off.

He is most likely a big earner, and the club might not look to keep him considering his age as compared to his wages.

Jermain Defoe

The fact that he has featured only 14 minutes this season and his move to the coaching staff reveals his future at the club.

He will remain at the club, but most likely not as a player.

Brandon Barker

A January departure seems inevitable for Baker unless his career takes an immediate turn.

He has made an impact at times, but he has not done much to demand a spot in the first eleven.
