Andrew Little admits he is bracing himself for the possibility of leaving Rangers, despite having just got a run of games under his belt for the club.
The Northern Irishman has netted three times since breaking into the team in February, with the club’s off-field problems contributing towards his elevation into the squad.
Little scored in the recent Glasgow derby win over Celtic, as well in his side’s last game against St Mirren.
Out of contract in the summer, the 22-year-old fears he may find himself at the end of his spell at Ibrox just as it is getting started.
"If the club is in a position where it is out of administration and able to offer me a contract then great, but I'm also aware that might not be the case," Little said on Rangers’ official website.
"Having got the chance now to play it would be a real shame for me to have to leave given the circumstances of the club and not down to how I'd performed.
"I feel I've done well enough to be offered a new contract and to stay and if the club isn't able to do that, it would be a shame but that's unfortunately the position that we're in."
Little first appeared in the first team back in 2009, appearing as a substitute against St Mirren in a Scottish Cup tie.
"It would be massive to leave because it's been probably the best spell I've ever had for the club after making my debut nearly three years ago," he added.
"It would be a real shame if I had to leave just as I was hitting my best spell because of other circumstances, but it's something I'm aware of.
"To step in to the first team and not let myself down has been great. I know I can play at that level and I've really enjoyed it so I hope it's not my last games, I hope I have many more games for Rangers."
