After a difficult start to the season, it looks like Scottish giants Rangers are now back on track. While it’s still early days in the season, the 4-0 win against Dundee was a welcome reprieve for Steven Gerrard’s men, as it took them to the 4th position in the league.
It appears that it’s not just on the field that the club’s fortunes are turning around but off the field too. After Rangers recently tied star-striker Alfredo Morelos to a new contract, they have followed it up with also tying up club captain James Tavernier to a new 4-year-deal which will see him stay with the Gers till 2022.
The 26-year-old defender expressed his delight about the news on social media:
Absolutely over the moon to extend my contract for this great club! #2022 🔴⚪️🔵 pic.twitter.com/SNvL4OjnFi

Tavernier who was linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion throughout the summer, said that he was looking forward to working with manager Steven Gerrard for a few more years to come. The fact that players are choosing to commit to the club despite interest from abroad must really please Rangers fans who will be hoping they are at the start of a special journey under their new manager.
