Allan McGregor would be interested in discussing a new contract with Rangers if the club wanted to hold talks.
The Scotland international has been a star for Gers with new owner Craig Whyte revealing the keeper would have been sold this summer had he not gained control.
McGregor has two years remaining on his Light Blues deal, but the 29-year-old is enjoying playing for the club and would be happy discussing new terms.
However, the shot-stopper's current focus is on helping Rangers win the title and success over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday would clinch a third successive title.
"I'd be more than happy to open contract discussions," he said.
"Right now, there are more important things to worry about.
"After the end of the season, I hope my phone goes and we can sit down."
Meanwhile, McGregor feels his penalty save in Gers' goalless draw with Celtic in the final Old Firm meeting of the season may have won his club the title.
At the time the stop from Georgios Samaras' spot-kick earned Rangers a point, although it was not until the Bhoys lost 3-2 to Inverness that the Light Blues regained the upper hand in the title race.
McGregor felt the draw with Celtic meant their hopes of retaining the title were over, but, in retrospect, he believes the point could now be the deciding factor in the gripping race.
"I was more disappointed that we didn't win it rather than thinking what the penalty save might mean further down the line," he continued.
"We went into the game desperate to win it because we wanted to keep it in our own hands and knew the only way to make sure that was the case was to take all three points. We created enough chances during the game to win the match.
"Actually, after the game I thought that was the title gone. That was my gut feeling so I wasn't thinking about saving the penalty and what it might mean.
"Whether it now proves to be a defining moment, only time will tell, but for that to be the case we need to win on Sunday at Rugby Park."
