Rangers XI who could play last game for Gers at Hampden v Hearts


Rangers lift the curtain on a rollercoaster season on Saturday when they take on Hearts at Hampden in the Scottish Cup final – and for some it might be the last time we see them in blue jerseys.

Retirements, transfers, expiring loans and expiring contracts mean there are sure to be at least a handful of Ibrox departures this summer.

So far, only John Souttar is a confirmed arrival at Ibrox this summer while Allan McGregor, Leon Balogun, Connor Goldson and Leon Balogun are out of contract at the end of the campaign.

The only clue Rangers fans have had about the future of the out-of-contract stars has been vague comments about talks with the club over the summer.

Your club’s SURPRISE star this season

Others, like Jack Simpson and Cedric Itten have been so far from the picture in recent months that it looks like they will be allowed to go to the first club to show an interest in them.

Here are our Rangers XI who could take their last bow at Hampden in the Scottish Cup final

Allan McGregor

The veteran goalkeeper is out of contract and may not even play for Hampden, with Jon McLaughlin having been handed the Scottish Cup gloves this season. The 40-year-old will have wanted to leave at sunset after a Europa League win but may now have to settle for the Scottish Cup.

Leon Balogun

The Nigeria international is another out of contract and has fallen down the pecking order, he could consider moving on this summer. A one-year deal could make sense for Rangers if he’s happy to play second fiddle, but an exit looks likely.

Connor Goldson

Goldson’s contract situation has been discussed at length and the closer the end of the season approaches, the more likely he seems to be out. Will be a huge loss.

Jack Simpson

Never worked but at least he can say he played for Rangers.

Borna Barisic

Barisic has served Rangers well since arriving in Scotland and it looks like he was out last summer after what felt like a goodbye to the fans. His time here is likely over and would likely suit both parties if sold over the summer.

Steven Davis

Another one out of contract. The veteran wants to stay but the decision could be out of his hands. If he leaves Rangers, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he retired from the game. One of the few to have represented Rangers in two European finals.

Aaron Ramsey

Nasty pantomime after his missed penalty in the Europa League final. The loan agreement is in place and with how badly his loan went – ​​as well as his ridiculous cost – a return is not likely to happen. It was worth a punt when he signed on loan but backfired.

Joe Aribo

Aribo has been crucial for Rangers since moving to Ibrox from Charlton a few years ago, but his performances have attracted a number of suitors. Cashing in and using the money to rebuild van Bronckhorst is an option for Rangers as Aribo enters the final year of his contract.

Amad Diallo

Man United Loanee have started to take off in recent weeks, but it’s a bit too late now. Could see his loan deal renewed, but as things stand he’s heading back to Manchester to try and impress new United boss Erik Ten Hag.

Kemar Roof

Roofe has returned from injury as a substitute in the Europa League final but his regular absences are straining the other strikers. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him move after Rangers took on Hearts at Hampden.
