LEE McCulloch today insisted Rangers stars will commit their long-term futures to the Ibrox club if a suitable buyer is found.

The deadline for bids for the stricken Glasgow giants came at five o'clock last night – with four interested parties making final offers.

And Gers administrators Paul Clark and David Whitehouse hope to be able to name the preferred bidder at the start of next week.

Multi-millionaire Scots businessman Brian Kennedy is also waiting in the wings if the Blue Knights consortium fronted by Paul Murray fails to gain control.

McCulloch, who has taken a sizeable pay cut to save the jobs of non-playing staff, revealed the players are monitoring developments with interest.

Many of Ally McCoist's first-team squad have had clauses inserted in their contracts allowing them to leave for cut-price fees in the summer.

And stars like Kyle Lafferty, Allan McGregor and Steven Naismith are being tipped to leave Scotland for Barclays Premier League or npower Championship clubs.

And last night there were reports that Sone Aluko's agent was in talks with an official from Spanish outfit Rayo Vallecano. But former Scotland international McCulloch believes many of the players want the Rangers finances to get sorted out – so they can stay put.

He said: "The players who have been linked with moves away from Rangers can't help that. Nor can you blame the clubs who are making the bids.

"But there are no issues with the commitment of the players who are at the club just now. They all want to be at the club and they all want the situation to get sorted out as soon as possible.

"We have got a bit of momentum going now. I think it did affect us when the club first went into administration. We just want to sew up second place and bring what has been a very difficult season to a finish. What we want is for a new owner to come in who will back the manager and back the players. We just want to achieve success on the park and drive the club forward in the future.

"The players will think long and hard about their futures. There is a lot of wild speculation, but we are all completely committed to helping get the club through this.

"I think the players have shown their commitment to Rangers by taking the steps that we have to safeguard the future of the staff at the club. Everybody just wants everything to get sorted out.

"Our performances have picked up in the last couple of games and our immediate aim is to keep that going."
