Rangers club captain James Tavernier has signed a two-year contract extension with the Scottish Premiership champions.

The right-back has been in stellar form this campaign, notching 11 league goals and ten assists as Steven Gerrard's side steamrolled their way to their first Scottish crown since 2011.

Tavernier's performances haven't gone unnoticed, with a whole host of clubs said to have been keeping tabs on the 29-year-old. However, he's now committed his future to the club until 2024 having signed a new deal at Ibrox.

The club took to their official website to confirm the news, taking time to reflect over the former Wigan man's superb displays this season.

"Rangers are today delighted to announce captain James Tavernier has signed a new, two-year extension to his current deal with the club, keeping him at Ibrox until the summer of 2024," the statement read.

"Tavernier has been outstanding for Rangers so far this season from right-back, scoring an incredible 17 goals from 41 appearances for the club.

"He has already earned a place in folklore as the captain to lead the club to 55, and he now has the opportunity to build on that legacy with this new, long-term contract."

Tavernier himself took the opportunity to express his delight at extending his stay at Ibrox, adding that their achievements this season are just the start of the journey.

“I am delighted to extend my contract at this magnificent club," he said. "As soon as I arrived six years ago, I soon realised how massive this club is.

“It isn’t a club really – it’s an institution. To captain Rangers to our historic 55th title is a memory I will hold forever. It is a privilege and an honour to pull on the famous royal blue, and adding the captain’s armband makes it even more special.

“As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, I am mindful that there is much more work to be done to ensure we uphold the values of Rangers.

"I will continue to strive to be better as a player, captain and make sure we continue to set the standard higher than before. 55 wasn’t the end of the journey, it was only the beginning.”
