Rangers captain James Tavernier has played down Newcastle interest and revealed he's committed to the Ibrox club.

Tavernier has been the subject of interest from Steve Bruce who hopes to strengthen his backline this month.

Not interested in a move, though, Tavernier has no intention of leaving.

Instead, he fancies knuckling down and helping his side try and wrestle the Scottish Premiership crown from rivals Celtic.

He said: "My contract is here and I’m fully committed to the team. 

"We’re halfway through the season, in a great position and my family are settled. In football, it can sometimes be out your hands but I’m delighted to be here and want to continue."
