Iain Flannigan hopes the appointment of Partick Thistle's new boss will allow him to sort out his own future.
Jags completed their Irn-Bru First Division season last Saturday – beating Raith Rovers 3-0 at Firhill – and, with his contract due to expire, it could have been the player's final match.
The Firhill board are expected to name Jackie McNamara and Simon Donnelly as their new management team tomorrow morning, and the former Kilmarnock midfielder hopes to sit down with the new gaffer and discuss his plans for next season.
"It has been frustrating over the last few weeks," Flannigan said. "I have missed five or six games with an injury so it was good to get back playing again.
"Hopefully I will still be here next season, although we don't know what is happening with the gaffer and if he will be here next year or not.
"All the boys would love Jackie to get the job on a permanent basis. We have a good relationship with him, he has got a good outlook on the game and the players have a lot of respect for him."
Victory over Raith ensured Thistle ended a roller-coaster season in a respectable fifth place.
Having started the campaign with a 4-0 thrashing at Stark's Park, the Jags bowed out in style with an emphatic win over John McGlynn's side and, while there was a sense of disappointment for Flannigan, the midfielder was pleased to finish with a flourish.
He said: "It is good to end on a high, but we would like to have finished fourth. Losing to Dundee 10 days ago, then other results went against us last Saturday, so we ended up fifth.
"Before the game, we just wanted to get the three points and give the fans something to cheer about on the last day and anything extra would have been a bonus.
"We sent the fans home happy with a good performance and a good win. It was important for the players as well because you don't want to end with a loss and go into the summer on a downer."
McNamara ended his temporary stint in charge on Saturday in style with a comfortable win.
Youngster Ryan Scully made an impressive debut.
"Scott Fox has been outstanding for us," McNamara said. "For me, he is one of the best in the league.
"But it was important to give Ryan a chance. If Foxy gets injured or suspended or someone comes in with a bid, you know that the young lad is ready to step up. He didn't have a lot to do, but he got a clean sheet and a lot of confidence from that."
