Lafferty keen on committing himself to Rangers

Kyle Lafferty says he is keen to sign a new contract with Rangers as soon as possible.

Recently 'Gers boss Ally McCoist indicated that he was happy to have the former Burnley man around at Ibrox for as long as he is manager and today Lafferty revealed that he is extremely happy as a Rangers player and would love to put pen to a contract extension when it suits.

"I saw what the manager said about me staying here and it means a lot. He's shown a lot of faith in me since taking over from Walter Smith and I'm doing everything I can to repay him," he said.

"There haven't been any talks over a new contract, but hopefully there will be soon and we can sort something out quickly.

"I don't see why I can't finish my career here. It would be brilliant to play long enough for Rangers to get a testimonial."

He added: "Things couldn't be going better for me.

"I'm playing where I want to for Rangers, scoring goals and playing regularly.

"It's brilliant playing alongside the likes of Nikica Jelavic and Stevie Naismith in attack. It's all I've ever wanted in football.

"I've won three league titles and now we're pushing strongly for a fourth.

"I've supported this club since I was a boy. I'm living the dream."
