Kris Boyd believes Glasgow Rangers must offer new deals to Steven Davis and Allan McGregor to keep them at Ibrox beyond the end of the season.
Boyd makes contract claim
Both Davis and McGregor are over 35 and are set to be out of the contract at the end of this season (Transfermarkt).
Speaking to Sky Sports (via Glasgow Times), Boyd has urged the 55-time Scottish champions to offer new deals to the duo. He said:
“There are some players in there who are out of contract – Allan McGregor, Steven Davis – and it’s important, I think, the club get them tied down.
“They have been crucial to everything Rangers have done this season, along with a few others.
“But it’s very, very important that you don’t stand still and you come back to win things.
“The recruitment in the summer is massive, to take Rangers on and consolidate that level of performance – or up it – and go again next season.”
Given they are fast approaching the end of their careers, Steven Gerrard will not be able to rely on the duo to play every single week. However, they have both played important roles this season as the Gers have ended their 10-year wait for a major trophy and still have something to offer.
Should McGregor and Davis receive new contracts?
The Gers could well be competing in the Champions League next season – McGregor and Davis are two of the few players in the squad who have previously played in Europe’s premier club competition. The advice and guidance they can offer to their younger teammates is priceless. As Boyd says, Ross Wilson and co must make sure the pair are still at Ibrox next term.
