Rangers loanee 'would definitely consider' deal with SPL club

Lee Hodson has opened up on injury problems and his future, to the Paisley Daily Express, as quoted by the Record.
The 27-year-old defender’s Ibrox contract expires this summer, coinciding with the end of his loan spell at St Mirren [Transfermarkt].
Back in late January, the Northern Ireland international had to be stretchered off during a 4-0 away defeat to Celtic.

At that stage, it looked as though he wouldn’t get an opportunity to put himself in the shop window before the end of the season.
Yet, after receiving treatment at Rangers, he returned to the Buddies’ squad at the weekend.

“I thought my season was over”, he told the Daily Express, as quoted by the Record. “To be honest, it was quite a bad one…but luckily everything seemed to heal without an operation.”

“The physios back at Rangers worked hard with me to get me back as soon as possible, so it is a credit to them for looking after me. They were absolutely brilliant.”

Permanent deal with St Mirren would be of interest

When discussing his future, there was no mention of hopes for another chance at Rangers. Instead, he opened the door for a permanent deal at St Mirren Park.
“I haven’t really had a chance to think about next season – my main focus has genuinely been about getting myself fit”, he continued.
“Sometimes you get doubts in your head that teams might not look at you because you have been out for a period of time. Hopefully, I will get some interest in the summer now I am back fit.”
“But I would definitely consider staying here. There is a great bunch of lads and great staff here so it is definitely something that I would be interested in.”

While there may be very little chance of Hodson pulling on the famous jersey again, it’s good to see him back fit.
His adopted side face a fight to stay in the top tier. They are three points ahead of bottom-placed Dundee but are in danger of facing a play-off to retain their SPL status.
If Hodson can play a role in helping Oran Kearney’s team escape, he’ll do his chances of that permanent move no harm.
