‘Absolutely outstanding’: Some Rangers fans in awe of 28-year-old’s ‘sensational’ display today

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to praise Ibrox captain James Tavernier after he impressed for Steven Gerrard’s side today.

Rangers ran out 4-0 winners over Dundee United at Ibrox in an eventful and controversial game where Gerrard lost four players to injury.

Leon Balogun suffered an injury before kick-off, the summer signing replaced by Filip Helander in the starting XI, and Ryan Jack hobbled off just 11 minutes into the game.

Despite these setbacks, Rangers took the lead soon after, Ryan Kent combining well with Ianis Hagi for the former to then slot home a low finish.

Following another injury, Brandon Barker pulling up and having to come off, Tavernier marked his 250th Gers appearance with a goal, pouncing at the back post after a low ball bypassed the Terrors defence.

Kemar Roofe and Scott Arfield then netted after the interval for a comprehensive win, but not before Alfredo Morelos had to be stretchered off, a Ryan Edwards challenge leaving the Colombian with a thigh wound.

There’ll be a lot for Gerrard to ponder after the game, not to mention questions being asked of Kevin Clancy’s refereeing performance, but on the plus side, Tavernier – a player who’s split opinion in the past – coming for huge praise.

 

Aside from his goal, the 28-year-old was a constant threat down the right flank and also contributed well defensively, helping Rangers to a seventh consecutive clean sheet.

Here is what some Bears were saying about Tavernier on social media:
