Rangers youngster keen to stay at Ibrox

Gregg Wylde is looking to stay on at Rangers, even though the midfielder is entering the final year of his current contract.

Rangers offered Wylde a new contract in May, but the 20 year-old has yet to sign the three-year extension that will keep him at the Ibrox until 2014.

According to Wylde, he is having talks with manager, Ally McCoist, this week: “The gaffer has been talking to Allan McGregor and Steven Whitaker first and I will probably talk to him this week.”

Despite being held by Hearts in their season opener, Wylde has faith in the team’s progression, stating: “The first half we didn’t play well. But the second half was totally different. We were much better,”

Rangers host Malmo in their penultimate Champions League qualifying stage on Tuesday, however Wylde is confident: “It’s a big pressure game and Malmo are a decent side.”

The midfielder continued: “The team really started gelling at the end of last season and if we do that again we will do all right.”
