Rangers boss Steven Gerrard confirmed he is on the verge of signing a new deal at Ibrox - and says three of his Ibrox stars are set to follow suit.

It's understood that Gerrard has agreed, in principle, a new deal stretching to 2024 and the former Liverpool captain says an announcement will be made soon.

New one-year agreements for goalkeeper Allan McGregor, midfielder Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe are also close to being finalised.

Gerrard - who missed out on winning his first trophy as a manager with Sunday's Betfred Cup final defeat to Celtic - said: "Alan McGregor and Steven Davis' deals are imminent.

"They are very close and will probably be announced after tomorrow's game. They're all agreed. They are two players I want around on a year extension on top of this year." 

Gerrard added: "Jermain's is a bit different because he's obviously Bournemouth's player until the end of the year. But it's a similar situation in that we want him to stay around.

"In terms of myself, the club approached me a week to 10 days ago about a new deal. It was a pretty simple decision. I want to stay around. I'm happy here.

"I'm as hungry and determined to get the good days back here as I ever was. Talks have been pretty straight forward and positive.

"When it's signed and announced, you'll have to wait and see. I don't want any focus on myself or these players before tomorrow's game with Young Boys."
