Rangers captain James Tavernier has signed a new two-year contract extension that will keep him at Ibrox until 2024.

The right-back and dead ball specialist, whose current deal was due to expire next year, has scored 17 goals in 41 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s men this season.

He also won his first Premiership title with the Ibrox club who he will be hoping to captain to a potential league and cup double.

But he insists that the league trophy, the club’s first in ten years, is only the beginning.

 He said: “I am delighted to extend my contract at this magnificent club. 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.

“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.”
