The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been pining over their club’s right-sided partnership of James Tavernier and Daniel Candeias. The pair have contributed a combined 12 goals and 16 assists in the Scottish Premiership this season and have been arguably the best right-hand side in the league.

The pair were at it again on Saturday as Tavernier captained Rangers to their 4-0 win over Dundee at Ibrox, a game which saw Candeias score one and set another up as they played Dundee off the park. The result will go a long way in terms of momentum as the Gers face their biggest game of the season next Sunday when they face Brendan Rodgers Celtic at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
If Rangers can beat Celtic they’ll prevent their Glasgow rivals from winning their first-ever back-to-back domestic treble. The feat has never been done in Scottish football, although Rangers have gone close on a number of occasions. Either way, the Ibrox faithful will be hoping they can rely on their deadly right-wing partnership to cause Celtic problems at the back in what promises to be the biggest Old Firm of the season.

Best right hand side in the league so I'm going to have to say aye.

If @Dcandeias11 could just improve on his positioning, ie. when Tav’s got the ball he’s already in space or bursting into it then would great. Feel at the moment, majority is to slow. Just read the game a few moves in front.
