Rangers midfielder DaMarcus Beasley would be willing to take a pay cut to stay at Ibrox but he fears he is set to leave the club.
The USA international is out of contract in the summer and said at the end of March that he wanted to resolve his future before the World Cup in June.
But Beasley has still to be offered a new deal and, despite his offers to help his club financially, he thinks that debt-ridden Rangers will let him leave.
"Rangers haven't spoken to me about coming back so I guess you can put two and two together and make your own conclusions," said Beasley, whose three years in Scottish football have been blighted by injury.
"But never say never. I would consider (a pay cut) so I wouldn't count that out.
"I have a perfect situation here from a life standpoint and I love playing for a great club like Rangers.
"I really do love the club and Glasgow feels like home. I've made a lot of friends here and, no matter what happens, it will always be a place I'll come back to."
The 27-year-old also paid tribute to manager Walter Smith, ranking him alongside his former boss at PSV Eindhoven, Guus Hiddink.
"I think Walter is up there with coaches like Hiddink," the winger told www.yanks-abroad.com.
"People look at trophies as signs of success and Walter's got a lot. He's done great and he gets the best out of us."
Despite his recent lack of match action, Beasley is hopeful of being selected for his country's World Cup squad ahead of their opening game against England.
"It's been an up and down year for me and I haven't played as much as I'd like, but I still hope I can make the team."
