In a recent Scottish Premiership showdown between Rangers and Aberdeen on Tuesday, football pundit Kenny Miller hinted at potential contract negotiations looming for Rangers’ midfielder John Lundstram at Ibrox.
Miller emphasized Lundstram’s pivotal role in the team since the arrival of manager Clement. Lundstram, who started the game at Ibrox, has notably appeared in 35 matches across all competitions this season.
“He’s arguably the most pivotal player since Clement came in. He’s been almost an ever-present since the Belgian came into the job, and his performance level has just been so, so consistent,” remarked Miller during the broadcast.
The pundit went on to express his belief that contract discussions could be on the horizon for the midfielder, whose current contract expires at the end of the season. Miller stated, “It would not surprise me to see maybe new contract talks coming up, being out of contract at the end of the season. I think he would be a player that Clement would definitely want to have available to him next season.”
Reflecting on Rangers’ past experiences, Miller highlighted the importance of securing key players to avoid a situation similar to the previous summer when players like Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent left Ibrox at the end of their contracts, resulting in significant losses for the Scottish Premiership giants.
“Rangers simply cannot afford a repeat of last summer when the likes of Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent left Ibrox at the end of their deals. Not only did the Scottish Premiership giants lose two key players, but hugely worryingly, they lost them for free,” Miller cautioned.
As the season progresses, the anticipation builds around the potential contract talks for John Lundstram, with fans and pundits alike eager to see the pivotal player continue his consistent performances in the Rangers’ midfield.
