Rangers defender admits uncertainly over Ibrox future, but knows what he wants

Rangers defender Luca Gasparotto is on loan away from Ibrox at Scottish Championship rivals Greenock Morton.

Rangers defender Luca Gasparotto has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he wants to sign a new contract with the Gers.

Gasparotto has been on the books of Rangers since 2013 and has a contract until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old centre-back is currently on loan at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton.

The Canada Under-23 defender has made it clear that he wants to remain at Ibrox beyond the summer, although he has admitted that he is unsure what is in store for him.

Gasparotto has also claimed that he is determined to play to the best of his ability for Morton between now and the end of the season in order to earn a new contract with Scottish Championship leaders Rangers.

“I’ve played a lot of games in the Championship this season and I’ve improved, that’s for sure, and hopefully I can take that into next year,” Gasparotto told The Glasgow Evening Times.

“I’m out of contract at the end of the season, and I haven’t met with the coaches or anything yet, so I’m not too sure what’s happening.

“It was ideal for me to go out on loan in the same league as Rangers though and show them what I can do. I think I’ve done that pretty well, so hopefully I’ve done enough to earn a new contract.”

Gasparotto is a good and promising young player, and he has done well for Morton so far.

The youngster has now fully recovered from an ankle injury, and it seems that he is ready to do the best he can in order to impress Rangers manager Mark Warburton.

With the Gers set to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season, Gasparotto will have to be at his very best for Morton.
