Likeable former Rangers forward Greg Stewart has been opening up on his Ibrox exit and revealed that he is currently mulling over multiple offers for his services.
The boyhood bluenose left Ibrox in the summer after two years with the club where the versatile frontman was used sparingly by Steven Gerrard.
Stewart, now 31, had his moments in the blue of Rangers but it’s clear the ex-Dundee, Birmingham, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen star was quite simply happy to be there.
Explaining to the Daily Record that it didn’t matter whether he played or not last season – and that 55 was the only thing that mattered – Stewart concedes that he’s unsurprised he wasn’t kept on.
The forward has also explained that he has a number of offers on the table – including one from abroad.
“It didn’t come as a surprise when I was told I wouldn’t be given a new contract,” said Stewart [Daily Record].
“I kind of expected it because I didn’t play that much last season.
“I only featured eight times and I’m at that age now where I need to try to play 30 or 40 games a season.
“There’s nothing worse as a football player when you’re not playing as much as you’d like.
“I missed out a lot last year so hopefully I can get back to a level where I’m playing consistently now.
“I’ve been back training on my own for a wee bit but I’m hopeful something will be sorted out this week. It will be good to get back in amongst it.
“I’ve had an offer from abroad and a few from Scotland so I’m just mulling over what’s best for me and my family.”
Greg Stewart lived the dream of so many Rangers supporters and fans will be delighted to hear that he has options ahead of the new season.
In total the forward played 33 times for the club after signing on a free contract in 2019, scoring three goals and laying on seven assists.
One Scottish Premiership rival has also been linked with a move for the player despite persistent links to another talent currently plying his trade at Ibrox.
