Rangers: Jordan Campbell shares James Tavernier injury boost -Rangers News

The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell has shared a big injury boost for Glasgow Rangers involving James Tavernier.

The Lowdown: Tav struggling

Giovanni van Bronckhorst admitted to the media after the 4-0 loss away at Ajax in the UEFA Champions League last week that Tavernier has been struggling with a knock that he picked up a couple of weeks prior.

He came off after just 45 minutes in that game, and so there are question marks over his fitness going into their next match against Napoli at Ibrox tonight.

The Latest: Tavernier ‘fit’

Taking to Twitter, Campbell has shared that Tavernier is now ‘fit’ after playing with a knock against Ajax, while Alfredo Morelos is also in contention to play:

“Morelos in contention after “wake-up call” pre-PSV & Tavernier fit after Ajax knock.”

Tavernier was the Teddy Bears’ best performer in their miraculous run to the UEFA Europa League final last season, scoring a mammoth seven goals and making two assists, picking up a team-high three man-of-the-match awards in the process (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, the Gers are a much stronger side with him in it, and so supporters will be hoping that he is fit enough to start tonight.
