Most of them are young and I want to build a strong team around them when we resume training in readiness for the new season. We have been negotiating on phone and four of them are likely to extend their stay,” he said.
He assured his desire to work with budding players whom he commended for their desire to learn and aspire for success.
“Coaches normally freak out when their best players run out contracts but I am elated that my players want to stay around. The promising bit is there are a handful of young players who have been requesting to join Rangers and I will filter and work with the best going forward,” he added.
