Right after being appointed as the manager of Rangers FC, Michael Beale makes some top announcements for new sqaud members. Beale will be heading the team under a new contract that will last until 2026. Beale is no stranger to the team. He worked at Ibrox under Steve Gerrard and is now planning to lead the team to multiple successful seasons. Beale has already made some major managerial decisions, including adding new contracts to the squad.
With some injuries to regular players and some new blood already on the team, there is some work to be done as the team tackles the 2022-2023 season. For bettors, the news of newly appointed players is exciting. This will provide some great betting options like free bets.
Two players are slated to return to play after being out with injuries. Ben Davies and Connor Goldson have both returned to training and will start working to prepare for playing a full 90 minutes.
New Contracts for Rangers
Beale is hopeful that a contract extension will be signed for Leon King. King is a young defender that will bring much power to the backline. At just 18 years old, King has appeared in 26 games for the first team, and 19 of them have been this season. His long-term contract extension was a cause of great excitement for the star, who has been a lifelong fan of the club.
While adding a younger star to the permanent roster will boost team endurance and strength, Beale also plans to add one of the senior players by extending a contract. Among those being considered are Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.
Some others that may earn an extension include Allan McGregor and Scott Arfield. All of these senior players bring knowledge, skill, and experience to the pitch which will be a great benefit for the younger squad members.
Some great news for fans and bettors is that attacker Ianis Hagi has officially signed a contract extension with the club. This Romanian player is currently on the sidelines with an injury but has committed his future to the Ibrox club. Hagi joined the squad in 2020 on loan and had a contract through 2023. This has now been extended.
Hagi has been a key player for Rangers and has scored 15 goals in 73 appearances. He also played a part in the team heading to the league title in 2021. In January, the player suffered a major knee injury that has prevented him from training or appearing in any games. As he continues to recover, this contract extension comes as promising news for the club. Maintaining a deal with the Rangers will be a huge asset and the contract was welcomed by Beale.
With some key players soon returning after injuries, some trades in the near future, and the extension of major contracts, the Rangers are gearing up for a powerful and successful season. Under the management of Beale, the club hopes to show fans just what they are made of by bringing excitement, athleticism, and immense skill to the field.
