Lee McCulloch wants Rangers stay

Rangers Gates

Lee McCulloch, who was sent off against Hearts this afternoon, says that he wants to sign a new contract with Rangers.

Rangers captain Lee McCulloch has told BT Sport that he wants to remain at the club.

The 36-year-old’s current contract with the Scottish Championship outfit runs out at the end of the season.

No new deal is in place at the moment, but the veteran wants to remain at Rangers and help them return to their old glory days.

“Of course, I want to stay here,” McCulloch told BT Sport when asked if he wants to remain at Rangers. “I want to play a big part in the run-in and take the club back to where we want to be.”

McCulloch made the comments following Rangers’ 2-1 victory over Heart of Midlothian at Ibrox this afternoon.

Although the Gers won the encounter and enhanced their chances of finishing in the Championship playoffs, McCulloch had a game to forget.

The former Wigan Athletic star, who has been on the books of Rangers since 2007, was sent off for elbowing Osman Sow just before the half-time interval.

Rangers have now lifted themselves up to second in the Scottish Championship table with 58 points from 30 matches

Stuart McCall’s side are now three points clear of third-placed Hibernian, having played a fewer game.
