EstConsultancy, a Twtter account that’s a source of highly reliable Rangers news broke the information on Monday afternoon.

This was followed by a post from a popular Rangers blog that stated that he would be signing a three-and-a-half year deal until 2021.
That’s still to be ratified by an official source but all indications point to good news for rangers fans imminently.

Rangers fans were totally delighted with the news, and took to Twitter to celebrate, with one fan saying an improved contract was “well deserved”.
Another said it would be like a new signing while another said that it was the best news he had heard all day.
The 27-year-old right-back has been at Rangers since the summer of 2015 when he signed from Wigan and since then he has made 126 appearances, scoring an impressive 23 goals and adding 38 assists.
If the news is true then Rangers can look forward to even more from their right-sided flyer in the years to come.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from excited Rangers fans:
Well deserved. Great contribution during his time so far.

@James_Tavernier Talk of a new deal, Tav, well deserved. Honestly think you are a rolls royce of a player, an entertainer yet a defender. Onwards and upwards.

James Tavernier has been a total revelation this season. Last season I genuinely wouldn’t have been fussed if he left but he’s kept the head down, clearly worked hard on aspects of his game and is reaping the rewards. New contract is more than deserved imo.
