“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.

“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.”

Tavernier has been a key player for Rangers once again this term and was handed the armband for the Scottish Cup win over Ayr United on Sunday.

The 26-year-old made the move to Glasgow from Wigan Athletic and is delighted to have pledged his future to Graeme Murty’s side.

Tavernier told RangersTV: “Signing this new contract would have to be my best moment at the club so far and knowing I will be here for another three and a half years.

“It is something I have really worked hard for, it is something I really want to do and I want to win these trophies that I keep on talking about. It is something I’ll be working hard to achieve.

“I’m so comfortable living in Glasgow and my family are, and it’s a great feeling to walk out into Ibrox on a match day with all the fans behind you singing.

“It’s a place I’ve not wanted to leave. I love being here and I love wearing the shirt. I just want to win stuff now.”
