Glasgow Rangers fans are worried ahead of their Europa League clash against Royal Antwerp on Thursday after it was revealed by The Daily Mail (via The Daily Record) that captain James Tavernier picked up a knock in training.
So far this campaign, Tavernier has been in stunning form. Despite being a right-back, he is the side’s top goalscorer with 17 strikes in all competitions, while he has still found time to provide a huge 15 assists (Transfermarkt). Not only that, he has been part of a side that has conceded just eight goals in 29 Premiership matches (BBC).
Can Rangers beat Antwerp without Tavernier?
Now, though, it has been revealed that the Gers could be without the 29-year-old for their round of 32 European tie, with the report adding that Ryan Jack could slot into the back four in Tavernier’s potential absence.
The Gers fans are far from happy with this news, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Tavernier news
“Just so typical Tav is injured at this time”
“Ok, I’m having a slight panic attack here seeing some tweets saying Tav is injured!!! Is this true???”
“Been awake for 5 minutes and my days been ruined already with Tav supposedly injured”
“Hopefully Gerrard gives us good news on Tavernier injury that’s doing the rounds”
“Hope the rumours that @James_Tavernier picked up a knock don’t come to much. Please be fit skipper.”
“Tavernier injured? Please no”
