Rangers confirmed that the 37-year-old had agreed a one-year deal that would run until the end of 2020-21 season.

“It’s fantastic news. It’s something we have been working on over the weeks and it is great to finally get that done and dusted,” Rangers manager Steven Gerrard said.

“He is still contributing heavily –- he is a major part of this group, this team and this squad and hopefully, together, we can go and share some success as I think he deserves that.”
