According to The Scotsman, Glasgow Rangers are keen to offer James Tavernier a new contract as his current deal approaches its climax.
Gers eye new Tavernier deal
The Rangers captain’s current agreement is set to run out at the end of the next season (Transfermarkt).
As such, this report suggested that both the 55-time Scottish champions and Steven Gerrard will be eager to tie down the £7.2m-valued 29-year-old for the foreseeable future.
Despite the Gers’ dominant title success, there have been few – if any – players who have contributed as much as Tavernier. As the club captain, he has led by example – although he is a defender, no player has scored more than his 17 goals for the Gers this season, while no-one has been able to match his 15 assists either.
Does Tavernier deserve a new deal?
Not only that, the Ibrox outfit have conceded just 10 goals in the Premiership throughout the campaign (BBC) as Tavernier has played a big role in the back four. In truth, he has probably been the key element in Rangers’ triumph, and to lose him would be a huge blow to all involved with the Gers. They must do all they can to make sure the former Wigan Athletic man receives a deal with which he is pleased.
