Rangers star Barrie McKay desperate to stay at Ibrox, wants new contract imminently

Rangers winger Barrie McKay wants to commit his future to the club.

Rangers winger Barrie McKay has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he wants a new contract agreed in the very near future.

McKay, 21, left Kilmarnock in the summer of 2011, joining his boyhood club Rangers despite injury problems picked up at Rugby Park.

Whilst he was a regular in the 2012-13 season, McKay was then loaned out to Greenock Morton and Raith Rovers during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons respectively, becoming something of a forgotten man at Ibrox.

However, his career has been revitalised by Rangers boss Mark Warburton, who gave McKay a chance in the team this season - and his faith has been repaid.

The wide man has been superb of late, and has arguably been Rangers' best player in recent games, producing another outstanding display against his former club Kilmarnock on Saturday afternoon.

With 18 months left on his contract, Rangers will be hoping to keep their young Scot for years to come - and a new contract appears to be in the offing.

McKay has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he wants a new contract sorted as soon as possible, having got the hectic January transfer window out of the way.

"Hopefully it can get done as soon as possible. I want to get it signed as soon as I can," said McKay. "I think we were just trying to get the January transfer window out the way and get whatever targets we had in. Now hopefully we will try and sort mine. Hopefully I can get it signed as soon as possible and it isn’t too far away. I want to get it done and commit my future here," he added.

Does McKay deserve a new contract at Rangers?
