Rangers boss Stuart McCall says he feels sorry for Gael Bigirimana, but admits he should never have been signed.
Chris Gunter will stay at Reading, after the club took up the option to extend his deal by another year.
The 28-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season, having joined the Clarets in May 2010.
The former Hull player has been an ever-present for Sean Dyche's men so far this campaign, but he is not too concerned with the lack of progress in signing a new deal.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "The club hasn't said anything to me. That's out of my control really. That's the club's decision and the manager's decision I suppose.
"I won't worry about that. What will be, will be. I will just come in every day, play the games and give my all and see what happens."
