Rangers have three players who could leave the club this summer as their respective contracts expire at the end of June – Lee Wallace, Gareth McAuley. Final decisions on their futures may not be made until the end of the season, likely due to a lack of interest from suitors.
The Gers tied down a number of important players last year to ensure they couldn’t hold the club to ransom – Daniel Candeias (March 14, 2018), Alfredo Morelos (September 1, 2018), James Tavernier (September 18, 2018), Glenn Middleton (October 26, 2018), Ryan Jack (December 21, 2018) – but they need to clarify if Wallace and McAuley have any mileage left at Ibrox.
Wallace has been a Rangers player since 2011 and his last contract extension was signed in 2016. The 31-year-old has struggled for fitness and playing time this season and looks unlikely to be retained as a result. With 261 appearances under his belt at Ibrox, Wallace has been a terrific servant.
He’s just fallen down the pecking order in the last two years, making just seven Premiership appearances since April 2017. As for McAuley, the experienced centre-back was a short-term signing, but he’s hardly featured in his debut season at Ibrox.
The 39-year-old has racked up just 556 minutes of Premiership football and spent the majority of the campaign sidelined with a calf injury. McAuley has made just one league appearance since mid-December 2018.
