James Tavernier endured a difficult evening in the Europa League match against Young Boys in midweek with some Rangers fans calling for him to be stripped of the captaincy and dropped via The Daily Record.
Does James Tavernier get too much criticism?
Tavernier was partially to blame (he was slammed by Chris Sutton) for the concession of both goals against Young Boys in a game that Rangers had initially appeared to be in control of. In fact, he unsuccessfully tried to toe-poke the ball back to Allan McGregor for the first then failing to clear a hopeful long header for the second, costing the Ibrox side dearly.
Despite not firing on all cylinders this season, Tavernier still has 8 assists and 3 goals to his name and it has only just turned October.
These Rangers fans took to Twitter to show their support for their captain.
A fine performance today James. Ignore the nonsense, the irrelevant and the noise
