Bruce: Players Unsettled at Club
"I have not been offered a contract. I have never been motivated by money and it hurts me when people suggest I am. It is rubbish and it is a cop out."
Bruce also hinted that there is a unsettling feeling in the ressing room: "What would make me stay is being offered a contract but the manager is not offering any of us a contract and there are 13 others also in the same situation.
"I would like the situation resolved sooner rather than later. I don't want to worry about my future. Every player wants security so it is not the ideal situation as it is up in the air.
"I will be allowed to talk to clubs in three weeks, which is something I don't really want to do, but that is the situation I'm in. Sometimes you have to look after yourself in football. I want to stay at Ipswich.
"I owe a lot to Jim Magilton and I owe a lot to the supporters and I would hate for that to end now but football is football and if I don't get offered anything then it is completely out of my hands.
"There will always be speculation for all players coming out of contract. I will be allowed to talk to clubs in three weeks, which is something I don't really want to do, but that is the situation I'm in.
"All I can do is my best, which I have been doing, then hopefully the reward of a new contract will come along then great. If not I will be moving on."
