A number of Rangers supporters have criticised James Tavernier’s performance in the first half of their Europa League clash with Alashkert.
The Gers have made a disappointing start to the 2021/22 season, struggling to convince both domestically and in Europe.
Steven Gerrard’s side lost to Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership – their first league defeat in 41 attempts – before being dumped out of the Champions League by Malmo.
Do Rangers need to change their ticketing system?
That loss means Rangers are now looking to get into this season’s Europa League, with the first leg of their qualifying clash with Alashkert taking place at Ibrox on Thursday evening.
One player who struggled in the opening 45 minutes was Tavernier, whose final ball left a lot to be desired, as well as his all-round impact.
Rangers fans react to Tavernier’s first-half display
These Rangers fans took to Twitter to discuss the opening 45 minutes, and despite John Lundstram’s red card it was the skipper who took plenty of stick…
“Tav should spend less time 180 quick-scoping and more time practicing beating the first man. Am I right lads“
“Tav off the free kicks“
“I love tav to bits, will always back him, but he shouldn’t be undroppable. Patterson deserves to start atm“
“Will be a big day for Rangers when Tav can finally beat the first man with a cross. Schoolboy stuff“
“Tav canny buy a decent delivery atm man“
“Tav was great last year. Battling this year“
“Does Tavernier know what colour shirt we’re wearing tonight? 15-minute mark and he’s passed 4 balls to Alashkert defenders already“
In other news, some Rangers fans are fuming at a club-related error that has occurred at Ibrox. Read more here.
