Three senior Rangers players and one starlet set for new deals - report

Reputable club insider account Four Lads Had a Dream has suggested that multiple Rangers players are set for new Ibrox deals.

It’s claimed that Allan McGregor, Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis will all reassert their commitment to the club, while Academy star Nathan Patterson is close to agreeing a new long-term contract.

Allan McGregor

McGregor has been outstanding since he returned to the club from Hull City in 2018. His two-year deal is set to expire in the summer, but Steven Gerrard has previously stated that if the stopper plays a certain number of matches, an extension will automatically be triggered [The Times].

He’s 37 now, but despite retiring from Scotland duty, he shows no sign of slowing down at club level.

Steven Davis

After a wobbly start having returned to the club on loan from Southampton in January, Davis is now rolling back the years in midfield. The Northern Ireland skipper’s one-year deal is also up in the summer [Rangers.co.uk], but it’s a no-brainer to offer him an extension.

Alongside Ryan Jack, he’s been helping the Gers dominate domestic and European fixtures, and he looks like he has several more seasons left in him.

Jermain Defoe

Veteran marksman Defoe is currently on loan from Bournemouth, but he is set to become a free agent in the summer [Transfermarkt]. At the minute, he’s happy to play second fiddle to Alfredo Morelos in terms of playing time but isn’t trailing behind anyone in the goalscoring charts.

His tally of ten league goals is the best in the Premiership, and given that he wants to stay [Sky Sports], it would be crazy not to snap him up.

Nathan Patterson

Patterson picked up a knock in Saturday’s Colts win over Wrexham, but has been identified by Graeme Murty as a player with all the traits of an ‘elite-level full-back.’

Aged just 18, he’s yet to make his senior debut, but it’d be a major coup if the club could tie him to a long-term contract.
