Rangers certain to offer John Lundstram new Ibrox deal

Rangers are almost certainly going to try and tie down John Lundstram to a new contract according to The Daily Record.

The 28-year-old midfielder has been at the club since the summer of 2021 and has been one of the success stories at Ibrox in recent years.

His current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2024 and The Record has suggested (21 September) that he will be one of the players that is offered new terms.

Good move

As much as Rangers’ recent transfer business has been a bone of contention for many fans of late, signing Lunstram for free was one of the better bits of work the club has done.

The former Sheffield United man was a mainstay in the Gers’ midfield in the 2021/22 season making 48 appearances during the campaign. He is a player that will still be able to perform at a high level for at least another four years and if he did extend his deal it would send a good message to some fans who are doubting the Light Blues’ ambition.

More pressing issues lie with players who are out of contract next summer with Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos the most high-profile pair to be staring the Ibrox exit in the face.

Rangers fans shouldn’t hold out much hope when it comes to Morelos and Kent. Both players would’ve committed their futures to the club by now if they were going to sign new terms. The likelihood of both of them staying is very low.

Potentially a mass exodus and refresh of the squad in January and next summer would not be the worst thing for Rangers moving forward.
