James Tavernier reacts on Twitter as Rangers hammer Aberdeen

Rangers moved to a point behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership standings after demolishing Aberdeen 5-0 at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.

After the Old Firm clash, this is a rivalry that carries big significance for the Gers, but the gulf in class on the pitch was evident to see as Steven Gerrard’s men kept up the pressure on Celtic in the title race.

Goals from Greg Stewart, Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe helped seal the win whilst a brace of penalties were converted by full-back James Tavernier.

The defender missed a penalty last time out in the Scottish League Cup against Livingston, so scoring twice on Saturday afternoon should help out his confidence no end.

He’s taken to Twitter after the victory to reflect on the past week, too, and it’s clear that he is in high-spirits over how things have gone:

A fine performance all-round for the Gers, and next up they return to European action.
