Rangers to offer young gun Wylde a new deal

Rangers youngster Gregg Wylde has confirmed that he is in talks with the club regarding a new deal.

The 20-year old midfielder made a huge impact in the latter half of the season with 'Gers as they went on to win their third straight Scottish Premier League title and he is now in the running for a new and improved deal to remain at Ibrox for the long term.

Wylde admitted he had reservations at the start of the season when Rangers brought in left-sided winger Vladimir Weiss from Manchester City but he feels it worked out for him in the end.

"Hopefully I can be the answer on the left side of midfield for a long time to come," he said.

"I was watching TV and reading all the papers back at the start of the season and, when Vladimir Weiss came in, I thought: 'Oh no, here we go.'

"But Vlad spoke to me, told me to keep working hard as it was a straight choice between me and him.

"Since he went out of the team, I've enjoyed it - so I have to thank him for that.

"I've now got a year left on my contract.

"The club have spoken to me already about a new deal - and hopefully something will be sorted out before we come back for pre-season.

"It's a great reward for what I've done, the offer, as I want to stay at Rangers.

"I'm a Rangers fan, I love training every day, I love playing for this club. But if the manager brings in someone to play in that position I just have to handle it.

"It would be nice if the manager didn't think he needed to sign anyone in left midfield because he thinks I'm doing a good enough job."
