Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left buzzing as some comments have emerged from James Tavernier.
As shared by Sky Sports Scotland, the Ibrox captain sat down with Livingston midfield player Marvin Bartley to talk about racism and their personal experiences of trying to combat it.
Tavernier talked about racial abuse he was sent on social media after a supposedly bad performance, recalling how he simply opted not to tell anyone about it, despite being ‘so infuriated’, admitting it has since been ‘burning inside’ of him.
Should Rangers start Tavernier?
Of course, the Ibrox outfit have been through their fair share of ordeals in this department, with Glen Kamara the victim of racial abuse last season, and more needs to be done to try and stamp racism out of football for good.
A lot of Light Blues supporters thought that Tavernier was truly inspirational with his words, representing the club well as their captain.
