Rangers may have offered new contract to Ryan Jack after Michael Beale comments on Friday
Michael Beale has spoken out about the expiring contracts at Rangers this summer and what the club have done about the situation.
According to the BBC on Friday, 5 May, along with Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent, who have not been offered extensions at Ibrox, Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Scott Arfield, veteran goalkeeper Allan McGregor and centre-back Filip Helander are also out of contract at the end of the season.
Addressing their futures, “There’s one or two we’ve offered contracts to,” said the Rangers manager.
Helander has not played for Rangers this season due to injury and banking on him to return and not have any further setbacks is wishful thinking.
He has had good moments at the club, but the chances of him being the one getting a new deal, appear to be very low as of now.
The same can be said about McGregor as the club are intensifying their pursuits for a new goalkeeper and are closing in on Jack Butland who’s currently at Manchester United, on loan from Crystal Palace.

With Davis, he’s already 38 and has been out with a long-term injury so he’s another player who’s unlikely to stay beyond this summer.
This leaves Jack and Arfield and it seems like these two are the players Beale is talking about as they’re both first-team members when it.
In fact, whenever he’s fit, Jack is among the first names on the team sheet as he’s supremely talented and makes Rangers a better side.
He may have suffered injury issues, but when fit, he’s extremely useful and not only is he a popular presence behind the scenes, he’s also loved by the Gers fanbase.
Still only 31, there’s a good reason to believe he can still offer his best to the club for next two years so retaining him makes a lot of sense.
If all goes well, we should see him at the club beyond this summer as well.
In other Rangers news, the club are clearly playing a sick joke with their supporters after they made an announcement about a senior player.
