The 36-year-old has played a key role in Steven Gerrard’s outstanding Rangers side this season and has missed just seven games across all competitions.

He is now in his second spell at Ibrox and is just two games away from playing 300 games for his boyhood club.

“But clubs are very clever, he’s settled there, he likes living there and he loves the club.

“Sometimes clubs use that to their advantage, they know he’s not going to turn down another year or two years.

“I’m sure he’ll sign it and he’ll have faith in his ability to earn another year after that.”

The Northern Ireland captain initially moved to Rangers on loan from Fulham in January 2008 before joining on a permanent deal that summer.

He re-joined the club again on loan from Southampton in January 2019 before penning a one-year deal that summer.
