Fans of Glasgow Rangers have been reacting to a post on Twitter, that relayed a claim made by Rangers’ assistant manager, Gary McAllister, regarding James Tavernier and Nathan Patterson.
According to McAllister, as cited by Clyde 1, Steven Gerrard could look to implement a shift in formation in order to accommodate the two “outstanding” right-backs, Tavernier and Patterson, into his starting XI.
The assistant manager said: “As a club, we are uber-delighted to have two outstanding players in that area. There are different formations that, you never know, we might be able to get the two of them on the pitch at the same time.”
However, after news of the potential switch in formation was shared on Twitter by Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, fans of Rangers flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be delighted at the prospect of both Tavernier and Patterson being on the pitch at the same time, something that could be seen in Gers’ clash with St Johnstone on Wednesday evening.
Would you like to see both Tavernier and Patterson in the starting XI tonight?
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to Gary McAllister’s comments?
“The link up could be sensational.”
“Tav as a winger when Patterson is playing could be class.”
“We’ve got to push Tav further forward, at least try it.”
“Would be class Paterson and Tav down the right.”
“Totally agree, Patterson is far more than a squad player nowadays and IMO should be playing regularly now, push Tavernier up one and really compliment both players by doing so.”
“Would be a pretty solid right flank…”
