Dundee ace Greg Stewart casts doubt on his future; Rangers reportedly prepare summer bid

Dundee forward Greg Stewart isn't sure he will sign a new contract with the club.

Dundee forward Greg Stewart has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times as saying that he isn't completely sure he'll be staying at Dens Park.

Stewart, 26, started his career in the Rangers youth academy before moving on to Hearts, and after a spell with Syngenta Amateurs, he exploded into life with Cowdenbeath.

After signing for Dundee in 2014, Stewart hit 15 goals in his debut season in the top flight, and this term - in a slightly different role under Paul Hartley, playing more of a wide role - he has hit 11 goals and racked up nine assists in another strong campaign.

Now, with just one year left on his contract, Stewart has been quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times as saying that he isn't sure what the future holds for him, and isn't even convinced that he'll sign a new contract if Dundee do offer him one.

"I spoke to the manager the other day and had a wee chat to see what’s happening," said Stewart. "I need to wait and see what I am going to do. Do I expect an offer from them? Basically, that’s what I am waiting on, yes. Would I sign an extension? I’ve not made my mind up yet. I just want to finish the season and do my best and take it from there."

"As a footballer, you always want to play at the highest level possible and whether it’s at Dundee or elsewhere I don’t know. I just want to concentrate on doing what I am doing. I am enjoying my football and I want to finish the season and see what happens," he added.

Intriguingly, he may have an offer on the table this summer. The Scottish Sun recently reported that Rangers are keen to land Stewart at the end of the season, and lure him back to the club where he started his career.

In Mark Warburton's 4-3-3 system, he tends to use players who can play out wide or through the middle - hence the arrivals of Martyn Waghorn and Michael O'Halloran since Warburton's appointment last summer.

As a wide forward, that could be Stewart's ideal role; he can play up front but has experience out wide, and that versatility lends itself perfectly to playing in Warburton's interchangeable attack.

Now a proven attacker in the Scottish Premiership, Stewart could be a smart addition to the Rangers side - and he would appear to have a clear role in the Gers side should Warburton land him this summer.
