Lee Hodson has been quoted by the Daily Record as saying that he hopes some interest is generated in his services, as his Rangers contract looks set to expire at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old left Rangers on loan last summer, joining Scottish Premiership side St. Mirren. But he managed just 19 appearances before being stretchered off against Celtic in January.
Hodson’s current deal expires at the end of May. The chances of him receiving a new deal at Ibrox are almost zero, with plenty of competition ahead of the Northern Ireland international in Steven Gerrard’s side.
The likes of James Tavernier, Jon Flanagan, Matt Polster, Borna Barisic and Andy Halliday are miles above Hodson in the pecking order. He commented on his future, stating he hope there is interest this summer.
“Hopefully I will get some interest in the summer now I am fit,” Hodson said. “I would definitely consider staying here. There is a great bunch of lads and great staff here so it is definitely something that I would be interested in.”
Hodson is surplus to requirements at Rangers and has almost zero chance of breaking back into Gerrard’s side. Since being signed by Mark Warburton in the summer of 2016, Hodson has played just 27 times for the Gers.
He simply is not good enough, and it is hard to argue whether he was ever good enough for a club like Rangers – having been signed from MK Dons three years ago. Letting him leave is an easy decision.
