Rangers fans will love what James Tavernier has done for Jordan Jones after title celebrations
James Tavernier lifted the Scottish Premiership trophy on Saturday evening following a 4-0 win over Aberdeen as Rangers went unbeaten – but fans will love what the Gers skipper did for out-on-loan winger Jordan Jones.
Tavernier, 29, took his tally of goal involvements to a whopping 35 for the season on Saturday as he laid on his 16th assist of the campaign. A season, in which, Rangers have remained unbeaten and taken their tally to 102 points.
It was his side’s first Scottish Premiership title in 10 years, the first since Rangers returned to the top flight after their financial collapse – and also stopped Celtic from achieving 10 in a row. The celebrations were enormous.
Just 11 appearances shy of 300 for Rangers, Tavernier has written himself into Rangers folklore alongside the likes of Allan McGregor, Steven Davis, Steven Gerrard and the rest of the Rangers side. Jones, meanwhile, is at Sunderland.
The 26-year-old is on loan at the Stadium of Light and has been since January, having a hand in seven goals during his 20 appearances for the Black Cats. He managed just four Rangers appearances during the first half of the season.
But Tavernier did not forget his Rangers-supporting teammate and while the Northern Ireland international has missed out a winners medal – Tavernier sent him an engraved bottle entitled “Champions 55”.
