Scott Arfield has suggested to Sky Sports that he will remain at Rangers until the end of his contract which expires in the summer of 2022, despite being linked with a move to Southampton.
The Daily Mail claimed earlier this month that the 30-year-old midfielder was a target for Southampton. It is believed Rangers value the Canada captain at £3million.
Arfield has been in superb form for Rangers since joining the Gers on a free transfer from Burnley in the summer. He has had a hand in 18 goals, scoring 11 times and creating seven – including a hat-trick against Motherwell.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Huddersfield Town midfielder stated that he believes he will help Rangers win a trophy before the end of his contract which still has three years to run.
“The fact of the matter is we came away with no trophies this season, which is a disappointment for this club,” Arfield said. “When you come through these doors you need to win trophies and that’s how you’re going to be judged.
“I’ve got a four-year contract, three left after this, and people can judge me at the end of that, but I know I’ll have some trophies.”
To sell Arfield for just £3million would be a waste. Even though the £3million price tag may be fair given that Arfield turns 31 before the end of the year, his value and importance to Rangers is worth a lot more than that.
Considering his view that Rangers will win a trophy in the next three years, Steven Gerrard’s side showed against Celtic that they can challenge even closer next season.
