Rangers fans on Twitter quick to slate Tavernier after Aberdeen defeat

Rangers were unfortunate enough to lose 1-0 yesterday in the Scottish League Cup final Hampden Park. The Gers fell to a late Lewis Ferguson goal and were left with nothing but what-ifs as Aberdeen booked a Hampden return to face Celtic in the final in December. After the game, James Tavernier spoke to Rangers TV, and the fans were quick to slander their captain.

Tavernier is one of those players where if he’s not on it, he’s awful. The Rangers captain has been one of Steven Gerrard’s standout men this season with his eight goals and eight assists from right-back, although there’s no defending his performance from yesterday as his delivery was woeful and he seemed to hide, as if the occasion got the better of him when it mattered in Gerrard’s first managerial semi-final.

Whilst The Bluenoses will still be struggling to swallow the bitter pill of semi-final heartbreak, they’ll have to get back to it and quickly as they face Kilmarnock on Wednesday in the Scottish Premier League and will be desperate to bounce back with three points and a good performance. Tavernier will be as keen as anyone to get back to form in two days time and he’ll be trying to show the fans what he really is capable of after he fell short of expectations at Hampden Park.

The fans aren’t happy at all with Tavernier and will hope he can quickly put the Hampden disappointment and performance out of his mind and get back to form.
