More To Come For Tav


JAMES TAVERNIER says that he wants to play a part in writing the next chapter in Rangers’ history after penning his new contract today.

The Englishman put pen to paper on a new deal until the summer of 2021 and told RangersTV that he wants to play an important part as the Gers continue to grow.

Tavernier said: “I was in Jimmy’s kit room and we were having a little bit of a joke and you obviously see all the pictures he’s got of all the squad with the trophies.

“That’s what I want to be doing at Rangers, I want to be winning trophies, I want to be winning leagues and that’s why I came here. I want to write the next chapter at the club.

“The squad that we’ve got I’m really excited about. We’ve got good numbers in the squad, we’ve got great quality in the squad and the performances lately have been good.

“I’m really excited for the second half of this season and the seasons to come.”

Tavernier has had a taste of winning silverware at the club, lifting the Scottish Championship and Scottish Challenge Cup in season 2015/16, but he wants to bring more successes to the club and to the fans.

He continued: “I want to win the league. If we can go for the Treble I want to win the Treble.

“I want to aim high and be playing in the Champions League, so this club has got the capability to do that. It’s got the fans behind us all the way, it’s down to the players to push really hard to get to that point.”

When Tavernier signed for the club in 2015, he had already played professionally at nine different clubs, but he now says that Rangers have given him a platform to grow as a player.

He said: “Obviously when I first came Mark Warburton gave me a great foundation to start my trade again and find my feet again just so I had that consistency of football.

“Now I’ve done that it’s been up and down for us but it’s been a great learning curve and I feel that my best football is still to come.”
