Rangers-linked centre-back Zak Vyner has set his sights on Premier League promotion after signing a new deal with Bristol City.

As the transfer window rolled to a close the Robins celebrated by signing a new three-year deal with the defender, ending any embers of those Rangers links from weeks previously.

Speaking after signing the new deal with Bristol City, Zak Vyner admits that he’s “super happy” to get the deal done with the Rangers-linked defender now targeting Premier League promotion.

“I’m going into a big part of my career,” Zak Vyner said.

“To be doing it with the club I have been at since I was eight years old is even more special.”

“I’m super happy to be signing this contract and to get it over the line.

“We’ve got a good, hungry squad. I want to try my best to contribute as much as I can to take us as high as possible in the league and get us into the Premier League – that’s the club’s and my ambition.”

Rangers-linked Zak Vyner signs Bristol City extension

Reports in Bristol Live had claimed that Rangers were targeting a summer move for Zak Vyner, with Premier League Luton Town and Championship Southampton also mentioned.

The defender came through the Academy at Ashton Gate and has already made close to 150 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2016.

But any suggestion Rangers were interested in the defender – who spent time on loan with Aberdeen in 19/20 – were shot down by Michael Beale at the time.

The Rangers manager claimed there was “no truth whatsoever” in reports linking the Ibrox side with a move for Bristol City defender Zak Vyner.

Rangers boss Beale is under pressure at Ibrox after a stuttering start to the season with the club’s lack of proper investment at centre-back under the microscope.

According to one report, an ex-Arsenal defender was in the club’s sights but Rangers were priced out of a move earlier in the window.
