Rangers fans on Twitter were desperate for Tavernier to be named Player of the Year

Last night, just hours after the Gers overcame Motherwell 3-0 at Fir Park in the Scottish Premier League thanks to a Scott Arfield treble, the players all sat down for their awards ceremony. The fans were asked on Twitter who they wanted to win the main prize of the evening, the men’s senior player of the season, and a lot of them called for their skipper.

The usual suspects were all up for this one. The likes of Alfredo Morelos, whose goals have gone some way to atoning for his dire disciplinary record, and Allan McGregor were two of the most called for players to take home the prize. However, there was one contingent of Gers who were desperate to see James Tavernier, their club captain, take home the award for his efforts this season.

From right-back, the Englishman has had a mightily impressive season. The odd errors here and there, including one against Celtic, are always inevitable. Although when you consider that from defence, Tavernier has a whopping 11 goals and 13 assists then it’s hard to argue with the calls for him to be awarded the player of the year for his 2018/19 season. In the end, it was Morelos who won it, but that didn’t stop plenty of optimistic Bluenoses repping their captain.
