Kris Boyd Urges Rangers to Secure Contract Extension for John Lundstram to Bolster Philippe Clement’s Squad Building

Sky Sports pundit Kris Boyd emphasized the significance of Rangers securing a contract extension for John Lundstram, describing it as “crucial” for Philippe Clement’s plans in the upcoming season.

Boyd, sharing his insights in a column for the Scottish Sun on March 8, stressed the English midfielder’s “enormous influence” on Clement’s tactical setup and underlined the pivotal role he plays alongside January signing Mohamed Diomande. Lundstram’s current Ibrox deal is set to expire in the summer, but Boyd, recognizing his stellar performances since Clement’s arrival, asserted that Lundstram is undeniably “one of the best” in the squad and should be retained.

The pundit expressed his thoughts, stating, “Rangers next season? Well, keeping hold of John Lundstram beyond the summer will be crucial. They need to find a way to tie him down on a new contract. He complements Diomande well, and wields such an enormous influence on the way Clement wants the team to play. For the Belgian to build again next term he’ll want his best players around him, and Lundstram has been one of the best.”

As the transfer window approaches, the spotlight is now on Rangers to navigate negotiations and secure the services of Lundstram to strengthen the team’s foundation for the challenges ahead. The impending decision on Lundstram’s contract extension looms large, with fans and football pundits alike eager to see how Rangers management responds to Kris Boyd’s call for continuity and stability in the squad.
