Rangers manager Graeme Murty has claimed that James Tavernier’s decision to sign a new contract at Ibrox has showed that the club is in good shape going forward.
The full-back recently signed a new three-and-a-half year deal at Ibrox, in an announcement made on the Gers official Twitter page.

Murty believes that the first-teamer would be a signing target for a massive number of clubs, and that the Light Blues have done well in managing to tie the 26-year-old down on a long-term deal.
“Tavernier has attributes that would attract many other clubs and it is a strong statement that he has committed his future” Murty said, as quoted on the club’s official Twitter page.

Tavernier has been a huge success at Ibrox since joining the club from Wigan in 2015, playing a key role in the promotion to the Scottish Premiership and being one of the most consistent players at Ibrox.
He captained the side in the recent 6-1 Scottish Cup victory over Ayr and has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring six goals and supplying eight assists in the process.
Tavernier and the rest of his Ibrox team-mates are next in action when they take a trip to Hamilton on Sunday.
The Gers will be looking not only to keep the pressure on second placed Aberdeen in the league table, but also get revenge against a Hamilton side who pulled off a shock 2-0 win at Ibrox in December in the last meeting between the sides.
