Rangers

By Harry Sykes

Clint Hill has revealed he will find out next week if he will be granted a new Rangers contract.

The veteran defender made it clear on Friday that he is very keen to return to Ibrox for a second season after initially joining on a one-year deal.

Hill explained he has held talks with senior Rangers officials and “made it clear” he would be “delighted” to pen a new contract.

The final decision on the centre-back is likely to rest with manager Pedro Caixinha, who is set to tell the senior players on Monday who is available for transfer in the forthcoming window.

Hill is one of the few successful signings from last summer by ex-manager Mark Warburton and former head of recruitment Frank McParland.

The 38-year-old has belied his years to nail down a regular starting place in the team, making 29 appearances in all competitions, all of which have been starts.

“I hope next week I’ll know my future,” said Hill, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account. “I’ve made it clear if a contract offer is made, I’d be delighted to sign it.”

Hill explained that he has “loved” his time at Ibrox as he brings down the curtain on a playing career that has also included lengthy spells at QPR, Crystal Palace and Stoke.

Rangers travel to sixth-placed Partick aiming to get back to winning ways after last weekend’s humiliating home league defeat at the hands of Celtic.

The 5-1 hammering at Ibrox virtually ended Caixinha’s sides hopes of overhauling Aberdeen and finishing the league season second beyond champions Celtic.

In other Rangers transfer news, Caixinha has made emphatic decisions on four players ahead of the summer window.
