Rangers fan favourite Clint Hill has admitted he faces a ‘big decision’ over his future as he nears the end of his contract with Carlisle United.

Hill joined the Cumbrians after leaving Ibrox last summer and at the age of 39 could hang his boots up in the summer.

The veteran defender has made 37 appearances this season but admits it won’t be an easy decision to make at the end of the campaign.

“I’ve got a big decision to make and it’s not gonna be an easy one,” Hill said, as quoted by the Evening Times.

“Let’s try and do what we want to do this season, then I’ve got to take a few weeks out and make that big decision.”

The former QPR defender became a huge favourite with Gers fans during his sole season at Ibrox with fans regularly travelling to Carlisle to see him in action with his new club.

Hill made 31 appearances, scoring six times, during his spell at Ibrox before being let go by then-manager Pedro Caixinha.

Football Insider verdict:

Hill looks as though he can keep playing for as long as he wants to but if the 39-year-old does decide to hang his boots up then the Gers should look to see if he has any desire to begin coaching and offer him a role in the club’s Academy. Hill’s professionalism and sheer enjoyment of the game is something the club should be looking to make the most of to help the youngsters in the Academy. His standing with fans is testament to the way he conducted himself during and after his spell at Ibrox and is something the fans really get behind.
