According to TeamTALK, Rangers have now opened contract talks with one first team star who Philippe Clement is keen to ties down on a new deal. 'Conversations' are said to have begun with former Everton and Sheffield United midfielder Lundstram who has made 137 appearances, including 37 this season, for the Glasgow club since his 2021 arrival.

However, the same report claims that fellow midfielder Jack is still waiting for talks to begin over a new deal. That being said, it is also claimed that the former Aberdeen man is 'highly valued' by Rangers and that 'there is no major panic over his situation'.

Although he is said to be unlikely to meet the playing milestones that would trigger his automatic one year extension, due to injuries limiting his playing time, it is claimed that he would .not hesitate' to sign a new contract if one is offered. Both players apparently have interest from club in Europe and in England.
