As reported by The Daily Mail, Clint Hill’s former manager Harry Redknapp has given his backing to the 38 year to win another contract at Ibrox this summer.
Hill is a former captain of Redknapp’s, the two working together when they were both at Queens Park Rangers. Now the defender’s former boss reckons he can go on to have more seasons full of good form in Glasgow.
As quoted by The Daily Mail, Redknapp said:
The new manager at Rangers would have a leader on the pitch if Clint stays. If they don’t keep him, I’m sure someone else will snap him up because I definitely think there are another couple of years left in him. As a manager, he is the type you want in your team any day of the week.
Hill has been in fantastic form for Rangers so far this season but can he really have another campaign like this one, or is the inevitable decline about to come?
At 38 years old, it’s clear that Clint Hill is no spring chicken. However, what he lacks in pace is more than repaid with his leadership and determination. Scoring 6 goals so far this season, he’s also made an unlikely impact on the club’s internal scoring charts.
His understanding and reading of the game from centre back is arguably second to none in the Scottish Premiership.
He also made himself a Rangers icon with his goal in the final minutes of the recent derby at Celtic Park.
On this season’s showing he’s more than worth a new contract, but it will be interesting to see what decision Caixinha takes in one of his first big decisions at the club.
