Rangers ace Nicky Law admits 'difficult time' over his Ibrox future, makes intentions clear

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has admitted that he wants to stay at Ibrox.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has been quoted by The Herald as saying that he wants to stay at Ibrox, but the uncertainty over his future has made it a difficult time for him.

The Gers sit 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership after the 2-0 win over Raith Rovers on Tuesday night, and are moving ever closer to promotion back to the top flight.

Once Rangers are promoted, manager Mark Warburton will no doubt want to re-shape his squad to adjust to the step up in quality, with Accrington duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass already heading to Ibrox this summer having penned pre-contract deals last month.

Whilst incomings will be key for Warburton and Rangers, he must also assess which players need to leave the club. Players like Dean Shiels, Nicky Clark and Nicky Law are all out of contract this summer, meaning Rangers could simply let them leave on free transfers.

Midfielder Law, 27, signed from Motherwell back in 2013, and has scored 26 goals in almost 120 appearances for the Gers, but has been more of a backup player under Warburton this season.

That makes his contract situation somewhat cloudy, and the he has been quoted by The Herald as saying that it's a 'difficult time' for him and the rest of the soon-to-be out of contract players.

Law also admitted that he would 'love' to stay at Ibrox, and hopes to have a decision about his future sorted sooner rather than later, but knows manager Warburton will take as much time as he needs.

"We obviously want our futures sorted as soon as possible as we have families to look after, but it is the manager’s decision," said Law. "It is a difficult time not just for myself, but for five or six of us at the moment. I would love to stay," he added.

Does Law deserve a new contract with Rangers?
