Rangers will be desperate to seek improvements after a sloppy run of games under Steven Gerrard, with their silverware hopes still very much alive.
The Bluenoses managed to bring in a number of players during the summer transfer window, and it’s fair to say that this has certainly paid off this season. However, it looks as if one of Rangers’ star men is attracting interest, as according to the Daily Mail, Brighton and Hove Albion will target James Tavernier in January.
Rangers full-back James Tavernier is a January target for Premier League side Brighton.
Indeed, the 26-year-old, who was made Rangers captain by Steven Gerrard, only signed a new contract last month and is a firm favourite at Ibrox.
Worryingly, Brighton have identified him as a player who can strengthen their Premier League squad and sent scouts to check on him during Thursday’s Europa League tie with Rapid Vienna.
James Tavernier has been a key figure at Rangers for sometime now and will no doubt play a huge part in their current campaign. But, Brighton and Hove Albion’s interest could tempt him to make the move to the English Premier League in January, which would leave the Bluenoses in all kinds of trouble.
Indeed, Steven Gerrard has been heavily reliant on the defender so far this season, so the club would be losing one of their star men if anything is to come of the interest.
