RANGERS have tied down winger Daniel Candeias on a new contract until 2020.

The 30-year-old has put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half year deal at Ibrox, becoming the fifth first team star to commit his future to the club in recent months.

James Tavernier, Josh Windass, Ross McCrorie and Alfredo Morelos have also agreed extended deals with the Light Blues.

The Portuguese midfielder arrived at Ibrox from Benfica last summer and has become a key man for Graeme Murty's side, scoring six goals in 36 appearances this season including a strike in Sunday's 3-2 defeat to Celtic.

He wrote on Twitter: "Thank you for the trust. I am very happy to continue to be part of this huge club for more two and a half years."

Rangers host Kilmarnock in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of an Old Firm defeat.

Murty's side are currently second in the standings, nine points behind leaders Celtic and five clear of Aberdeen, although the Hoops and the Dons have a game in hand.
