Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield claims he “would love” the opportunity to win a new contract and stay at Ibrox – be that as a player or as a coach.

The Ibrox star, 34, might not be as spritely as his younger self but the impactful player proved he still has quality and hunger as he popped up with two vital goals in the recent 3-2 injury time victory over Aberdeen.

Those strikes were his sixth and seventh of yet another productive season with the ex-Falkirk and Burnley star now in his fifth campaign in Rangers colours.

But as Scott Arfield continues to reach the twilight of his career the midfielder is under no illusions the preciousness of life at football’s top level.

Scott Arfield “would love” new Rangers contract

A popular and positive part of the Rangers squad, Scott Arfield is out of contract in the summer but is determined to secure his future at Ibrox be it as a player or in the background.

Despite the pressure of trying to win a new contract, it’s not something that Scott Arfield claims is at the forefront of his mind.

“I’m not bothered, not bothered one bit,” said Arfield [Rangers].

“Through my career I’ve had that summer two or three times where I didn’t really know what was happening.

“Such is life. Whatever happens will happen.

“I’ve never really been uptight about contracts. Of course, naturally, you’d rather get them all done and settled but I don’t really flap in any of those scenarios where I don’t know what I’m doing in the summer.

“It’s quite’s a nice thing sometimes when you don’t know where life is going to take you next. I would love to stay here as long as possible no matter the capacity.

”There has been no contract talks but when you get over 30 the talks stop, and you take it day by day.

“The talks will happen down the road. You aren’t as big an asset at my age and you need to stay in your lane but I don’t have a problem with that.”

Scott Arfield has made a total of 216 appearances for Rangers, scoring 41 goals and laying on a further 19 in a productive return which will do his hopes of a new contract no harm at all.

Meanwhile, a fresh Rangers contract is not off the table despite a devastating revelation.
