Rangers have made a good start to the season both domestically and in the Europa League under new manager Steven Gerrard.
And one player who has been at the heart of the Glasgow club’s promising run of form is captain James Tavernier, a name who was greeted with much excitement when he arrived at Ibrox from Wigan alongside Martyn Waghorn back in the summer of 2015.

The 26-year-old has gone from strength to strength since making his Rangers debut, and is now easily one of the team’s most important players.
While Tavernier has proven to be an adequate defender, what stands out most about the right-back is the quality he offers his side going forward.
Last season, the Rangers captain was able to register eight goals in the SPL and already has three to his name in the current campaign.
Tavernier has also shown he is just as capable at creating goals having mustered up seven assists on top of the eight goals he scored in the previous term.
The Newcastle United youth product has since been linked with a move to Premier League side Brighton ahead of the January transfer window (via Sky Sports), but Rangers are likely to rebuff any approach for their skipper — and rightly so.
