The agents of James Tavernier dropped a huge Twitter hint on Wednesday that he has committed to a new Rangers contract.
StormSportX, which represent scores of top players including a number on the books of the Light Blues, posted a social media message at 5.27pm claiming a Valentine’s Day treat is in store for Rangers supporters.
A short GiF of Ibrox was accompanied by a poem and a Rangers hashtag as well as a pen and paper.

Given that the StormSportX website names Tavernier among the players on its books, and the reports in the last 48 hours that he has agreed the terms of a new contract, it appears that an announcement is now imminent.
Reports emerged on Twitter on Monday that the right-back is set to sign a three-and-a-half year contract that runs until the summer of 2021 to replace his existing deal, which expires in June of 2019.
They were then followed up on Tuesday by the established Scottish media.
Tavernier has been in outstanding form for Rangers in recent months and expressed his delight after captaining the side for the first time on Sunday in their 6-1 Scottish Cup fifth-round win over Ayr United.
The 2015 signing has scored a hugely impressive six goals and supplied eight assists from 32 matches from his ostensibly defensive role this season.
