There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Rangers right-back James Tavernier in the last 24 hours.

Football Insider has exclusively revealed that the 26-year-old, who captained the Light Blues in their recent 6-1 Scottish Cup victory over Ayr, has agreed to sign a lucrative two-year contract extension to prolong his stay with the Gers until 2021.

If this is the case it is a superb piece of business by director of football Mark Allen and all at Ibrox. The Englishman has been a big success since moving to Glasgow from Wigan in 2015, and played a vital role in winning promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.

The new deal can also be shown as yet another example of the Light Blues meaning business and being serious about becoming champions of Scotland once again.

This was started with some great January transfer business which brought the likes of Jamie Murphy, Jason Cummings, Greg Docherty and Russell Martin to the club, and looks like it will continue as one of the most important players at the club has committed his future to Ibrox.

For the first time in a few years the future looks promising at Rangers, and the new contract for Tavernier will only add to the feelgood factor.
