Discussions on-going: Rangers in contract talks with first-team duo - confirmed

Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed discussions are on-going in contract talks with Danny Wilson and Josh Windass.
Murty confirmed the Ibrox giants have spoken with both players but admitted there hadn’t been any “detailed discussions” with the in-form duo.
Wilson’s current deal expires at the end of the season while Windass is under contract until the summer of 2020.
The Rangers boss confirmed talks were still going on within the club with the players “aware” of the situation.
“These are guys that are performing well and when players are performing well then it’s up to the manager to talk to them, keep them in the loop and get an understanding of where they see themselves in the next year,” Murty said when talking about Wilson and Windass, as quoted by The Herald.
“Our discussions with them will be on-going although as to lengths of contracts that’s something I will talk to the players about.
“We have spoken to both about their situations but so far detailed discussions haven’t taken place.
“We are aware of their situation and they are aware we are talking internally.”
Both players have been key for Murty since the 43-year-old replaced Pedro Caixinha – with Windass scoring five of his six goals this season under Murty’s management.
Wilson has forced his way back into the starting XI after being frozen out by Caixinha and the 26-year-old’s performances since returning to the side have led to calls for him to be rewarded with a new contract.
With the Gers making a number of signings so far this month – and more likely on the way – both could face increased competition for a starting place as the Gers look to secure second in the Scottish Premiership and challenge for the Scottish Cup.
Wilson has made 15 appearances this season, scoring three times, while Windass has scored six in 24 appearances this term.
In other Rangers news, this international is expected to undergo a medical with the Gers on Tuesday.
