Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has agreed his new contract at Ibrox.
The 24-year-old has produced a series of good displays whilst deputising for Lionel Letizi and Stefan Klos this season.
And although McGregor was dropped in preference to Letizi recently, manager Paul Le Guen has moved to secure his services.
"We have reached an agreement with Allan until 2009 and I am very happy with that," confirmed Le Guen.
The Gers boss also revealed that defender Steven Smith would be handed a new deal, while talks with winger Chris Burke were continuing.
"We will re-sign Steven Smith until 2010," he said.
"Our priority is to have stability and it is important to keep the best young players, which is why I am happy."
On Burke he added: "We will carry on discussions with Chris and we hope we can get an agreement.
"Yes, I am worried (he could sign for another club in January), but that is the rule and I accept that.
"We want him to re-sign, but it is up to him."
