The 26-year-old opted to stay at Ibrox, though, and has now committed his future to the club by putting pen-to-paper on a four-year deal.

It would have been bizarre if the Gers had sold Tavernier given that manager Steven Gerrard made him permanent captain after impressing during pre-season.

The former Newcastle United player has made 154 appearances for Rangers since his move to the Scottish outfit from Wigan Athletic in 2015.

This season, Tavernier has made 14 appearances in all competitions and has contributed with four goals.

After the announcement was made on Twitter, plenty of fans posted comments on the right-back’s commitment to the club, who currently sit fourth in the Scottish Premiership, seven points adrift of leaders Hearts.
