Is Rangers defender James Tavernier underrated?

Defender James Tavernier has been a key player so far for Rangers during his three years at the club and it could be suggested that he’s underrated by people outside of Ibrox.

The 27-year-old is an attack-minded right-back that has proven over the years how strong he is going forward, but there have always been question marks over him defensively and concerns about his consistency.

But current Gers manager Steven Gerrard appears to be getting the best out the English ace and he is thriving as captain of the Scottish giants.

It can be quite easy for fans to overlook Scottish football, but the league is extremely competitive and Rangers are proving their quality by performing strongly in the Europa League too.

Tavernier has made 19 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring six goals and supplying eight assists in return.

The right-sided flyer constantly drives forward into the final third and his return in front of goal is exceptional for a full-back.

He is now entering the peak years of his career and his experience in defending is beginning to mould him into an even better player.

According to Sky Sports, Brighton are considering a January move for the Rangers defender and the Scottish club should demand huge money if they are to let him go.
