STEVEN GERRARD fears Allan McGregor's Ibrox future could be out of his hands as the keeper enters the final months of his Rangers contract.

The 39-year-old has been in stunning form for the Light Blues once again this term and is now poised to clinch another top flight title in the coming weeks.

McGregor's current Gers deal expires at the end of the campaign but Gerrard is determined to keep him around for longer if the Ibrox hero wishes to play on.

Gerrard said: "He is a big leader in the group. Allan is someone who is very robotic in terms of his routine, he comes in and his standards are the same every single day. He has the same routine before training, he has the same routine before games, he never drops his standards or has a day off.



"His preparation and his focus is at a level that is up there with the best goalies that I have ever worked with.

"We are delighted with his form and if he can maintain that from now until the end of the season then I am sure that will be a big help to us. He is the reason, or one of the big reasons, why we are in the position we are in today.

"We all know his age, we all know his situation and in the coming weeks I will be sitting down with Allan and having a real good conversation to see what is next for him.

“He will be a major factor in what happens moving forward. We will respect him. He knows his body, he knows where he’s at, he knows where his hunger levels are.

“He knows how he wants the short, medium and long term to look. He’s at that age now where he will be doing a lot of thinking about what’s next.

“In my position, I hope that’s to still work with Allan moving forward.

"But I don’t know how the next weeks and months are going to shape his future.

“But we will be very respectful. We will listen to him and make a decision together on the back of that.”
