Rangers fans discuss Tavernier’s future as captain

Loads of Rangers fans have been discussing the form and leadership abilities of James Tavernier, and not one of them thinks the right-back should keep the captain’s armband next season.

The Gers lost their last realistic hope of winning silverware this season on Tuesday, as Aberdeen rocked up to Ibrox and won 2-0 to advance to the Scottish Cup semi-final, where they will play Celtic.

Not a single Gers player will feel proud of their performance, but fans were extra critical of Tavernier after the match, and not even because of anything that happened on the pitch.

Fans were fuming that the club’s official Twitter account interviewed substitute and recent signing Jermain Defoe, instead of the skipper, after such a devastating defeat.

There is no doubt Tavernier is a brilliant player going forward, racking up 14 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this season, but he is prone to lapses in concentration at the back, which simply should not happen from the side’s skipper.

Fans clearly feel the same way, as you can see from the Twitter reactions down below…
