Rangers secured a stunning home win against Feyenoord in the Europa League on Thursday evening but it could’ve been more comfortable had captain James Tavernier scored his penalty in the 9th minute.
His manager, Steven Gerrard, defended him after the 1-0 victory, saying there will be “no finger-pointing” in his post-match press conference, via The Sun.
Despite a dip in goal scoring form, the Rangers skipper has still managed to accumulate five assists and one goal – showing his creative influence is still vital to the Ibrox club.
Nevertheless, fans are keen for him to be removed from penalty-taking duties for future fixtures. Indeed, both Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe are seemingly waiting in the wings, ready to take on the responsibility.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
He had a good run but its time to get him off penalties

Time for a new taker that’s two misses

Morelos should take them in my opinion. He could have been on over 40 goals last season if he was taking them. Off subject but read he is likely to get called up again. How many times has Dembelle been called up to the full France squad.

Morelos or Defoe should be on penalties

Time for a new penalty taker maybe? He’s missed two from two this season
