Rangers have agreed the terms of a new contract with Ryan Jack, Football Insider has learned.

The Scottish giants have been in talks with the central midfielder, 27, in recent weeks about an improved contract to replace the one he signed 10 months ago.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that an agreement is now in place after Jack accepted an offer worth more than £20,000-a-week.

The club have acted to reward a player who Steven Gerrard regards as integral to his bid to put Rangers back on the Scottish football summit this season.

Jack signed a deal in December of last year that runs until 2021, and the new agreement will exceed that term.

He has also secured a big pay rise in a deal worth more than £4million in total after establishing himself as one of the standout players in Gerrard’s table-topping side.

Jack had a difficult first campaign after signing on a free transfer from Aberdeen in 2017, partly due to a series of red cards and injury issues.

Since Gerrard took over a year later, Jack has developed into one of the best central midfielders in Scotland.

He has built a strong partnership with veteran Steven Davis this season and the pair have emerged as the first choices in the middle of the pitch.

Jack has made 16 appearances for Rangers in the new campaign, all of which have been starts, and 83 in total for the club.

He is set to be the latest star player at the club, following the likes of Alfredo Morelos and James Tavernier, to be rewarded with a new deal and pay hike to secure his future.
