Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been criticising the performance of James Tavernier in their 1-1 draw at home to Hearts on Saturday afternoon.
Steven Gerrard’s team fell to a disappointing draw in the end after a very late goal from Craig Halkett, following the opener in the first half from John Lundstram.
Should Rangers start Tavernier?
Tavernier did not put in the kind of captain’s performance that he would have liked, as he lost out on three of his duels and also failed to make a single dribble or interception in the game. The right-back also lost possession of the ball on 20 different occasions at Ibrox, the most out of any player to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).
Rangers fans on Tavernier’s performance
These Rangers fans on Twitter slammed the 29-year-old’s performance, with one Light Blues supporter even going as far as to claim that the Gers captain was a ‘spectator’ against Hearts:
“Where’s the captain? Worst performance I’ve seen from him in years and he lets our best player go out and take the heat? Joke of a leader Tavernier regardless of his goals and assists”
“Morelos, Goldson and Tavernier are dreadful this season.”
“Although Lundstram had a good game you’ve got to question why him, Tavernier and Goldson were shattered after 70 mins. None of these players were away for international duty yet struggled after that. Tavernier has been poor, we need to take our chances. Not scoring enough so far.”
“Tavernier a spectator”
“Tavernier is so frustrating”
“Nathan Patterson is better than Tavernier. Goodnight.”
