Rangers are optimistic that both James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn can be convinced to sign new contracts, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported that defender Tavernier and forward Waghorn have rejected the chance to put pen to paper on new deals.

The Scottish Premiership-bound club offered the duo new contracts last month, but they rejected them, according to the report.

According to The Scottish Sun, both Tavernier and Waghorn want better terms for their performances last season.

The pair played key roles in Rangers’ comfortable Scottish Championship triumph during the 2015-16 season.

The Glasgow giants, though, are reported to be optimistic that the pair will return to the negotiating table, and that deals with the duo will be struck eventually.

“Rangers still remain optimistic that both can be convinced to come back to the negotiating table - and that there will eventually be a positive outcome to the talks with them signing,” states the report in The Scottish Sun.

The Gers have started pre-season training already and have also signed a number of players in the summer transfer window.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton and ex-Queens Park Rangers defender Clint Hill among others have join Mark Warburton’s side this summer so far.
