Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left slamming the display of James Tavernier in their 1-1 draw away at Brondby in the UEFA Europa League.
It was a disappointing draw in Denmark in the end, despite Ianis Hagi saving the Ibrox faithful’s blushes after going behind in the first half to an own goal from Leon Balogun.
Tavernier did not seem quite at the same level as he was on the weekend – he scored one and made another two assists in their 6-1 demolition of Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership (SofaScore).
Should Rangers start Tavernier?
The right-back lost out on two of his duels on Thursday, and was also unsuccessful in two of his dribble attempts, while he failed to make a single interception, and lost possession of the ball on no fewer than 29 separate occasions in the game, by far the most out of any player on the pitch (SofaScore).
Light Blues supporters were particularly critical of his crossing – he was inaccurate with seven of them, again the most out of any player (SofaScore).
Rangers fans on Tavernier display
These Light Blues slammed his performance on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that he was ‘woeful’:
“Tavernier looks clueless when he can’t cross it tonight..”
“Does Tavernier know he’s allowed to shoot?? So many times where it would be easier to shoot than cross.”
“Tavernier CANNOT cross a ball! Rarely finds a teammate! Can argue all you want… but if any player got 10 attempts a match to put in a good cross, they would get one right.”
“Has Tavernier completed a cross all night?”
“Patterson on, Tavernier off. He’s not at the races tonight.”
“Is Tavernier woeful tonight? Cue a goal from him…”
