Rangers teenager Ryan Sinnamon may be out-of-contract this summer, but he has told The Scotsman that he wants to stay at the club.
Sinnamon, 18, has recently been named on the bench by new manager Stuart McCall, who has now won two and drawn two of his first four games in charge.
McCall was appointed earlier this month, and has already set about implementing a youth movement at Ibrox, giving opportunities to youth products Andy Murdoch and Tom Walsh.
Sinnamon looks set to become the latest young prospect to break into the first-team under McCall having been named on the bench recently, but there are still questions over his future.
The teenage right back is out-of-contract at the end of the season, and it seems there is no deal to stay at Ibrox on the table just yet.
Sinnamon is currently on international duty with the Scotland Under-19's, but told The Scotsman that he wants to sign a new contract to stay at Rangers - and believe his chances of securing a new deal are looking good given that it's McCall at the helm.
"At Rangers, I’m out of contract in the summer. It’s a big period," said Sinnamon. "I’d like to stay at Rangers and the way it’s going it’s definitely looking a bit more positive for me. At the start of the season I was just in the under-20s, but since Stuart McCall’s come in I’ve felt far more involved and been training with the first team every day."
"I’ve been on the bench for the last couple of games so it’s looking a bit more positive for me. He’s definitely spending more time on tactics and the players seem to be getting a buzz off him. You could see that in the performance against Hibs. He’s been good with me on the training ground."
"Hopefully, I can impress him and being away with Scotland helps me kick on. He seems to have faith in younger players and it’s good that the boys who have come in have made an impact, because it shows we can produce," he added.
Given Rangers' financial troubles in recent years, it would be far more economically smart to promote youth players and develop them rather than fork out for new arrivals - and Sinnamon should certainly be kept, given that McCall has already brought him into the first-team setup.
