Rangers winger Chris Burke is determined to win a new deal at Ibrox.

Burke, who is working his way back to fitness after a lengthy spell out, sees his current contract expire at the end of the season.

The Scotland international made a successful return to action in a reserve team clash with St Johnstone earlier this week after four months out with a serious ankle problem.

Burke is keen to win his place back in the first team and prove he is worthy of a new contract.

"The past four months have been frustrating when you take into account I missed the Uefa Cup final, the Scottish Cup final, the entire summer and the start of the season," Burke told Rangers News.

Focus

"So much has happened during that period but all I can do is look forward and put all my focus on getting back into the team.

"It is the last year of my contract but I am not trying to think about that too much right now as it can get on top of you.

"What's meant to be is meant to be and it's just unfortunate that I had to get my ankle surgery when I did.

"These things happen and I am not thinking about my contract situation too much, although I know I'll need to in the future.

"My main priority is to get my fitness and strength back and all I want is to get back in a blue jersey again."
