Rangers: Fans brutal in their verdicts on James Tavernier

Rangers: Fans brutal in their verdicts on James Tavernier

Rangers dropped points for just the second time this season after a 1-1 draw with Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday with the Ibrox club conceding after a mistake by James Tavernier.

The Gers captain has been criticised throughout his career in Glasgow for his apparent defensive deficiencies (by pundits such as Michael Stewart on Sportscene via HITC), and his failed header to Allan McGregor at the weekend was another high-profile mistake this season.

There have never been doubts about Tavernier’s attacking capabilities with 46 goals and 67 assists in 215 appearances from right-back during his time at Ibrox. Indeed, even this season he has managed 8 assists and 3 goals when he is well below his previous standards.

Tavernier now finds himself under pressure from sections of the support and, after making such a crucial mistake against a team struggling towards the bottom of the league, he was culpable in the team dropping points.

With that in mind, Rangers fans took to Twitter to display their frustration at their captain’s latest blunder.


And perhaps the most brutal of them all…
