Jordan Campbell has been left buzzing over some Glasgow Rangers news which has now emerged involving James Tavernier.
The Lowdown: Players’ POTY
The Ibrox club announced on Sunday night that Tavernier has won the Men’s Players’ Player of the Year Award (POTY).
The right-back has been dubbed the team’s best performer in both the Premiership and the Europa League, scoring an astounding 13 goals and supplying a further 15 assists in both competitions combined (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Campbell reacts
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist Campbell buzzed over the update as it was announced, claiming that Tavernier was the ‘clear choice’ alongside Calvin Bassey as Young Player as he stated:
“The clear choice this season, along with Bassey as young player.
“I think this is the best football Tavernier has played of his career as his overall game has been brilliant under Van Bronckhorst.
“He looks more emboldened than ever.”
The Verdict: Deserved
The reward for Tavernier is so well-deserved, and as Campbell suggests, the right-back really seems to have stepped up his game under new manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Should Rangers start Tavernier?
Under Steven Gerrard earlier this season, the Englishman had managed three goals in total over all competitions. Since Van Bronckhorst’s arrival, he has added another nine, including six crucial strikes in the Europa League to help them all the way to the semi-finals (Transfermarkt).
The captain has certainly led by example, especially in Europe, and while they slack behind Celtic in the Premiership, this could still be a quite remarkable season if they manage to go all the way in the Europa League.
