Rangers: Fans unanimous in cause of James Tavernier’s recent problems

Former Rangers player, Rangers TV co-commentator and RockSport Radio guest, Hugh Burns, feels that James Tavernier’s recent difficulties have been caused by the exposure he now has to endure following Daniel Candeias’ departure from the club in the summer.

Does James Tavernier get too much criticism?

Yes

Yes

No

No

RockSport host, Bill Young, posed the question on Twitter to gauge Gers fans response.

Tavernier is under increasing pressure this season for two reasons: he has missed two penalties and he has been culpable of defensive lapses in recent games against Young Boys in the Europa League and against Hearts in the Scottish Premiership.

None of these errors have been caused by being isolated 1 v 1 or from missing tackles when under pressure, they have come from misjudging the flight of a ball or trying to play out from the back. Basic, individual and preventable errors.

Rangers fans took to Twitter to disagree with Burns and to highlight exactly what the real problem is.
