Celtic fans have responded en masse to a tweet by Daily Record journalist, Keith Jackson, in which he promotes an article in support of Rangers captain, James Tavernier, by former Ibrox boss, Mark Warburton.
Should Celtic re-sign Victor Wanyama?
Gateshead, Carlisle, Milton Keynes, Rotherham and Wigan. James Tavernier’s CV was like the world’s worst stay-cation. But Warburton knew he’d be a bargain at Ibrox… https://t.co/PKzemIYbV7

Tavernier has been responsible for a series of high-profile blunders that have cost the Ibrox side points as well as two missed penalties, his latest indiscretion coming at Tynecastle in the 1-1 draw with Hearts that saw Celtic return to the top of the league.
Bhoys fans didn’t miss the opportunity to have a go at captain calamity and Warburton – who was initially lauded by the media – but left Scotland with Rangers some 30 points behind Celtic.
They took to twitter in response to Jackson’s tweet to mock the under pressure full-back and former manager.
Aye he was that good that warburton didn’t try and sign him when he went into management back down south.

Taverniers qualities….. Decent cross
Taverniers negatives….all the negatives.

4 seasons at Ibrox and hasn’t won’t a major trophy….. that’s not a bargain that’s a bad buy.

I’d pay heed to his words of wisdom. He is the ex-future-England manager after all…

You reckon Warburton will select him in the next England squad?
