Rangers are set to offer defender and captain James Tavernier a new and improved contract after they rejected advances from West Bromwich Albion for his signature last week, according to The Daily Mirror (11/08 Live Blog, 22:24).

The Baggies wanted to bring Tavernier back to English football in the closing stages of the transfer window down south, offering £4m for the player which was swiftly rejected.

The right-back didn’t try and force the move but now wants to be rewarded for his loyalty, with the club also eager to sign him up to improved terms.

That’s despite only signing his current contract in February, committing his future to the club until 2021.

There’s an argument to say that he should not be given a new deal because of that, but for the happiness of the player it’d be best for the Gers to at least open negotiations with his representatives.

His form has improved dramatically in recent months and he is now a captain that fans can be proud of, having been handed the armband permanently by Steven Gerrard this summer.

He now looks like a firm part of Rangers’ short and long-term future and hopefully we are willing to do what it takes to preserve that.

Do you think James Tavernier deserves a new contract? Let us know in the comments below…

  • Yes i think that james tavern let deserves a new and improved contract as he has been loyal to Glasgow Rangers since he signed for us back in season 2012-13 and ever since he has went on to become one of the best right back player Rangers apart from David Robertson but give the lad another another season and he will become the best right back rangers have ever signed.And with the new contract he is signing he will become one of the most expensive players to be playing in scottish football because if an English club comes in to sign him in 2 to 3 years he will cost that club about £15 to £20 million pounds to pry him away from Rangers the club he has come to love and the fans all love james Davenport as he give s 100% every match.
