Rangers have agreed a new contract with James Tavernier until 2026, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The reliable journalist has now reported that the deal is done and sealed, and it should be announced in a matter of days with everything sorted.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson have bene working hard to get numerous contract extensions done, with a number of stars entering their final years.

Writing on his official Twitter account, Romano shared the news coming from Ibrox that will no doubt have everyone buzzing around Glasgow.

“Rangers have reached an agreement with James Tavernier to sign a new contract until June 2026, been told it’s now done and sealed,” he wrote.

“Official announcement expected in the next days, Tavernier stays.”


This is the news that we have all been waiting for.

Tavernier only has eyes for Rangers, and this agreement is no doubt going to make sure that he finishes his career at Ibrox after so many successful years.

Not only is he a star at Auchenhowie, but he will go down in history as one of the most successful right-backs in world football given his goalscoring record, not to mention his assists.

The skipper finished as the top scorer in the Europa League last season and took home that Golden Boot, name another right-back who has ever done that?

Wilson is clearly working in overdrive, and not to put any more pressure on him but now it is time for Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent to sign on the dotted line.

If that happens this summer, this has been one of the most phenomenal windows we have ever seen – even with losing Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo.

What a day.

In other Rangers news, the club are under no pressure to sell Glen Kamara this summer.
