Rangers will be hoping they can bring some of their European momentum into their Scottish Premiership fixtures as they look to push for the title.
Indeed, the Bluenoses have drafted in a number of players so far this summer and Steven Gerrard has managed to get them to gel together. But, he has now turned his attention to one of his current players, as according to the Sunday Mirror (12/08; page 65) (via HITC), Rangers are hoping they will be able to hand James Tavernier a new contract at Ibrox.
James Tavernier has captained the Bluenoses for much of the year and has kept the armband following Steven Gerrard’s appointment.
And, it’s believed that English Championship side West Bromwich Albion attempted to sign the right-back on transfer deadline day.
So, having kept hold of the defender, Rangers are hoping to make a statement by planning to offer him a new contract.
So, it looks as if Rangers are hoping to tie James Tavernier down to a new contract at the club after fending off West Bromwich Albion’s approach on the English club’s deadline day.
Securing the right-back on a new deal would be a big player agreement as the defender has established himself as one of the best players in Scottish football and has been a major part of the Bluenoses’ success in recent times.
Indeed, getting the defender to sign a new contract at the club will provide a huge boost and will be sure to get even more supporters on board.
