Alexander Hoping For New Deal

Neil Alexander has said he is hopeful of securing a new deal with his contract being up in the summer.

The goalkeeper played what could be his last game against Berwick, keeping his 22nd competitive clean sheet of the season in the process. The 35 year old also completed a full season between the posts as he played every minute of the team's 47 games.

Unfortunately contract talks have been stalled for a number of weeks, but Alexander is hopeful that a way forward can be found as he'd love to extend his stay to more than five and a half years at the club.

The sticking point is the club have offered a one year deal, and Alexander would like a two year deal, but the club haven't moved on that.

You'd like to think a compromise could be struck, because to be fair at his age, a years' deal is fair and it can be assessed again next summer. However he does have Ally McCoist in his corner.

Speaking to the Official Site he explained.

'It was quite emotional for me after the game at the weekend as I knew it could be my last at Rangers. Things are exactly as they've always been, the offer to me is still on the table and that was made in February. I need to go away, think about it, and what's best both for my family and myself but I'm desperate to stay. If anything could be resolved or changed that would be great.'

You can understand Alexander wanting the security of two years, but the offer on the table in terms of months is fair given the clubs position really, so hopefully something will be done that suits both parties. Maybe an option in the clubs or players favour on agreed terms, with the option to revist the contract completely depending on how we progress next season?
