Furman stalls on new Rangers deal

Rangers youngster Dean Furman has still to sign a new deal at Ibrox due to reservations over spending the majority of his stay in the reserves. The 21-year-old midfielder spent last season away from the club on a season-long loan with Bradford and has got used to regular first team football.

"I'm out of contract. There's an offer on the table from Rangers but as yet I've not accepted it. So much is up in the air at the moment but hopefully in the next couple of weeks things will become clearer," he told the Daily Record.

"I'm looking at my best option. I absolutely loved my time at Bradford and it was disappointing the last few weeks of the season went downhill after we'd been in the play-off spot for most of the campaign.

"Regular football was the big thing. It was senior football as opposed to reserve outings. It was the next step in my career and it has made me a better player.

"I want to be somewhere I can get the chance to play every week because the past season has given me a sniff of that level and I've loved it.

"Rangers are a different level but I feel I can handle the pressure of playing in front of 50,000 fans every week.

"My best option is to go where I can get the chance to play and hopefully over the next couple of weeks that can be resolved."
