It was a disappointing result for Rangers against Hearts of Midlothian.
With Celtic hammering Ross County 6-0 on Saturday, the Gers needed a victory against the Jam Tarts to move back to the top of the Scottish Premiership table. However, they could only manage a 1-1 draw, and they only got that after Alfredo Morelos had levelled following their opponents’ opener in the first half. They now sit second in the table on goal difference.

There were plenty of displays that were lacking, but right-back James Tavernier’s was particularly disappointing. The 27-year-old was at fault for Hearts’ goal and other than that, he did not manage to reach his usual high standards.
His display did not go unnoticed by the Ibrox outfit’s supporters, and they were quick to slam his performance. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Tavernier can’t even get a throw in right today

Tavernier and Goldson are the weak links in our defence. The latter always has a mistake in him and the former has proven time and time again he just cannot defend. Today included.

Tavernier has been horrendous so far

Tavernier really needs to get a grip. Making a mistake is one thing but not having the heart or desire to drag yourself back from it is unforgivable

Called it last time and was ridiculed for speaking bad about the captain, no good crosses in to the box, crosses are over hit or hitting the first man, awful, drop him for a couple of games.

Tavernier wouldn’t get a game for an amateur league team with the way he’s playing the day.

Tavernier is the worst captain in the clubs history

Tavernier has been atrocious today, his touch, passing, positioning, tackling & delivery hasn’t been good enough
