Rangers have loaned out the youngster to Livingston, and he has impressed.
Hardie has netted five goals in his last seven appearances, with the 20-year-old’s form catching the eye.
Hardie’s time at Ibrox could be coming towards an end though, as his contract is due to run out in the summer.
Hardie admits he would like a new deal at Rangers, but he is also keen to use his loan spell to show other clubs what he can do.
“This is the last few months of my deal so hopefully coming here I can either prove myself to get another contract at Rangers or it opens other options, so I just need to see what happens,” Hardie said.
“There’s things going on behind the scenes but I just concentrate on doing what I’m doing at the minute.”
Hardie is regarded as one of Rangers’ brightest prospects, so his form may well earn him a new deal to stay with Glasgow.
Rangers fans have even suggested that they would be keen to see him rotated into their first-team next season.
Graeme Murty has shown a willingness to use his side’s academy graduates during his time at Ibrox so far.
However, if no new deal can be agreed, Hardie will surely have plenty of offers, if he continues to find the back of the net out on loan.
