Glasgow Rangers defender and Ibrox captain James Tavernier has received plaudits from a number of neutrals following his heroics for Steven Gerrard’s charges this term.
The 29-year-old joined Rangers in the summer of 2015, Mark Warburton snapping him up from English outfit Wigan along with Martyn Waghorn.
Tavernier has since clocked up 266 competitive appearances for the Gers, registering 60 goals and 84 assists, as well as of course getting the captain’s armband.
The full-back has had his ups and downs at Ibrox, and he came under some criticism in the second half of last season, but this term he has kicked on and is in the form of his life.
In 23 appearances this term, Tavernier has claimed 14 goals and 10 assists, helping the club establish a huge lead at the top of the Premiership table and shine in the cup competitions.
The Europa League Twitter account has shined the spotlight on the Gers skipper for his exploits this season:
