Stuart McCall comments on his Rangers future, would 'love' to stay long-term

Rangers manager Stuart McCall isn't sure where his future lies beyond the end of the season.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told Sky Sports that he wants to stay at Ibrox, but isn't sure what the future holds for him.

McCall, 50, made his name as a manager with Motherwell, but returned to former club Rangers in March after the departure of Kenny McDowall.

McCall featured heavily as a midfielder for Rangers during his playing days, and is now charged with the task of taking Rangers back to the top flight.

With just one defeat and five wins from his first ten games in charge, McCall has made a bright start to life in the Ibrox dugout, and has earned praise from supporters for bringing young players into the first team such as Andy Murdoch, Tom Walsh and Ryan Hardie.

A play-off campaign is on the horizon for Rangers, and after Hearts blitzed their way to the Scottish Championship title, it's their last chance of promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

McCall will be looking for promotion in the play-offs, but is also bidding to earn a new contract at Ibrox, given that his current deal expires this summer.

McCall told Sky Sports that whilst the originally thought that he would just work until the end of the season, he now wants to stay at the club long-term - but knows that his future is up in the air until Rangers know which division they are playing in next season.

"When I came here I thought maybe I could help out until the end of the season and see where it goes but now I've been in the place it's fantastic. It's a great club to work for as you can imagine," said McCall.

"I think next season there are 11 players out of contract and there will certainly be a bit of a clean sweep and new faces coming in. It will be sort of a new start regardless of what league Rangers are in and it's one now since I've been here that I would miss and I would love to be here longer. I am enjoying every minute, relishing every minute, but who knows what happens in the future," he added.
