The playing squad at Glasgow Rangers that will look to fight for silverware next season will be significantly different to the one that has disappointed this term, with sizeable changes this summer.
Pedro Caixinha has admitted that he is assessing the players at his disposal, with a lot set to be offloaded and new faces to arrive at Ibrox.
The Gers boss has recently stated that he will sit down with Barrie McKay shortly and try to sort out the talented midfielder’s contract with the Scottish side.
The 22-year-old’s current deal with Rangers will expire next summer and as yet there has been no progress in extending the Bainsford-born man’s contract.
Although McKay is something of a fans favourite at Ibrox, the midfielder has not be assured of a starting place since Caixinha’s arrival, with the new manager seemingly not rating him as highly as some of his predecessors.
As such, Rangers cannot afford to let the star’s contract run into the final 12 months and need to either extend his deal or sell him.
With finances a big issue for the Ibrox side in the past given the club going into administration, financial management this summer is critical.
With Rangers not wanting to spend more than they can afford, selling McKay for a couple of million pound could fund a handful of new signings for Caixinha.
Although the fans would be sad to see him leave given the Scotland international attacker’s potential, it looks to be in the club’s interests to offload McKay this summer.
