Rangers captain James Tavernier has taken to Instagram to express his delight at signing a new contract.

Scottish Premiership giants Rangers have announced that right-back Tavernier has put pen to paper on a new deal.

The 29-year-old, who is also the captain of the Gers, has signed a new two-year extension to his current deal which will see him stay at Ibrox until the summer of 2024 at least.

The English defender has taken to Instagram to send a message to the Rangers fans after committing his future at the club.

Tavernier has been on the books of Rangers since 2015 when he joined from Wigan Athletic.

The Gers were then in the Scottish Championship, and the 29-year-old has since helped the club get promoted to the Scottish Premiership and win the title this season.

Steven Gerrard’s side have already won the Scottish Premiership title this season and also reached the Europa League Round of 16.

Tavernier has scored 11 goals and provided nine assists in 29 Scottish Premiership matches, and scored two goals and gave one assist in seven Europa League games for the Glasgow giants this season.

Rangers manager Gerrard told the club’s official website about Tavernier’s new contract: “I am delighted to secure the services of our captain on a new long-term deal.

“This shows the ambition of both James and the club as we continue to drive forward to fulfil our ambitions, both domestically and in Europe. James has been a consistent performer for me since I made the decision to hand him the captain’s armband in 2018.

“His leadership is obvious both on the field and in the dressing room as well. He commands respect but ensures he leads with action and not words.James can continue to improve, as I know he is hungry to become a better version of himself on a daily basis.”
