CLINT HILL has admitted he would love to stay at Rangers after thoroughly enjoying his first season in Glasgow.

The 38 year-old has impressed at centre-half throughout the campaign, and with Pedro Caixinha revealing he will start making decisions on the future of his players next week, Hill hopes he will be part of his plans.

He explained: “We might know early next week. That’s all I know and hopefully if you ask me that question this time next week I might have an answer for you.

“If you look throughout world football, it’s rare that teams will only make three or four changes – most make seven, eight, nine or 10 changes. I can see that happening here and hopefully it is a good thing that will take the club forward next season.

“I’ve made it clear if there is a contract to be had, then I would love to stay here. I have enjoyed my time here, although it has been a very difficult season here as a club and as a team. I have enjoyed my experience here and it has been an honour to play in front of such a big crowd, and it’s something that will live with me for a long time.”

Hill admitted his first season at Ibrox has taken him by surprise in a number of aspects, not least the fact he has started more games than he would have expected.

But, he pointed to playing for the club as a real highlight in his long career, again reiterating just how much he has relished the responsibility that comes with it.

He added: “I probably thought I would be the third or fourth choice and would come in, try to earn my stripes, come in to the team and try to make it has hard as possible for someone to take it back off me again.

“I think it’s panned out that way, and as I said, it has not been a great season as a team, and there will be a lot of negatives and positives to take from it.

“I’m 38, playing for Glasgow Rangers and 50,000 people turn up every other week to support the club. It’s one of the biggest clubs in world football and it’s definitely the highest achievement I’ve had in my career, and I have thoroughly enjoyed representing the club. Hopefully, we’ll see this time next week if I can continue.

“I knew it would be hard. This club is built on winning things and the tradition of finishing top. That expectation will never, ever cease, no matter where you have been over the last three or four years.

“It’s right too as standards should be high. One of the objectives was to get into Europe, but we have to kick on over the next few years and close that gap.”
