Tavernier has been a key player for Graeme Murty this season and getting him to commit to a new long-term is a massive boost for the club and fans.
The defender joined in the summer of 2015 from Wigan and has since made 126 appearances for Rangers, scoring 23 goals.
He captained the side for the first time in the 6-1 win in the Scottish Cup at the weekend and now he gets to celebrate with a new, improved deal.
Rangers fans were delighted by the news and took to Twitter once the news had been announced.
