Broadfoot enters final year of Rangers contract with open mind

Kirk Broadfoot is unconcerned about being in the final year of his Rangers contract - but admitted there may come a point when he will have to consider leaving the club. Scotland full-back Broadfoot has just returned from nine months out injured, during which time his and a number of his team-mate's deals have been allowed to wind down.

The 25-year-old wants to extend his contract but, despite confirming Rangers chief executive Martin Bain had touched base with his agent, there has been no progress on that front.

"It's not affecting me at all because the main thing was to get myself back playing and get fit," said Broadfoot.

"I've only played two games; it's only been a week.

"It's not as though I've been playing now for months.

"I'm sure that'll come around and, when it does, we'll see what happens."

He added: "Martin Bain's contacted my agent.

"I think that's an indication that the manager would like me to stay.

"I'd like to stay here but who knows what will happen.

"Obviously, you want your future sorted out.

"In football, you never know what's round the corner but I'm just happy being back playing."

Broadfoot joined Rangers from St Mirren after signing a pre-contract in January 2007.

Asked if he would consider something similar next month, he said: "Obviously if it comes to the stage where I have to sort my career out, I'll have to speak to other teams.

"But, right now, I'm more concentrated on getting a run of first-team games for Rangers."
