Papac: Has penned a one-year contract extension at Rangers
Rangers defender Sasa Papac has penned a one-year contract extension with the Scottish Premier League champions.
The 31-year-old, who arrived at Ibrox at the start of the 2006/07 season from Austria Vienna, has helped the Gers to back-to-back titles over the last three seasons.
The Bosnian has notched up 46 appearances for Walter Smith's side this term, playing a key role in their title push.
Papac's deal in Glasgow was due to expire in the summer, but the left-back will now be part of the new regime under Ally McCoist, Smith's successor as manager, and new owner Craig Whyte.
As well as enjoying league success with Rangers, Papac has helped the club to two Scottish Cups and three League Cups during his time at Ibrox.
A statement on Rangers' official website read: "Sasa Papac has shown his passion for Rangers by putting pen-to-paper on a new one-year deal at Murray Park this morning.
"The news will be a big boost for Ally McCoist who has always stated his admiration for the Bosnian who was a hugely consistent performer during Walter Smith's second spell in charge of the Light Blues."
