Hutton hopes performances will secure contract

Kyle Hutton, who played the full 90 minutes of Rangers' 4-0 victory over Stenhousemuir on Saturday, is determined to use the final three matches of the season to secure his future.

The 23-year-old is out of contract in the summer and his appearance at Ochilview was just his second league start of a season heavily disrupted by injuries.

"This is the last year of my contract, so I am basically fighting for a deal," said Hutton. "My agent has spoken to [Ally McCoist] and I will just need to see what happens. I need to keep performing well.

"I'm not sure when it will be sorted out. Obviously, there is stuff going on in the background, so all I am concentrating on is trying to play well and show [the manager] that I'm worth a new deal."

It has taken Hutton time to recapture full fitness after two separate long-term injury absences, but he said he was delighted with the way he played against Stenhousemuir.

He added: "Touch wood, I am over the injury problems. I had a broken right leg and then tore tendons in my left leg. It has been a really bad season for me.

"I'm just getting my touch and match fitness back, so hopefully I can kick on now."
