James Tavernier produced a captain’s performance to help inspire a major Rangers victory European over Maribor at Ibrox on Thursday night.

Winning the first leg against the Slovenians 3-1, Steven Gerrard’s side now have a great chances of progressing to the play-off round of the UEFA Europa League, with fans starting to dream of the group stages.

Tavernier was excellent throughout and had the nerve to stroke home a penalty early in the second half to restore his side’s lead after the visitors had cancelled out Alfredo Morelos’ opener.

For all the criticism of his defensive ability, he never tired once in hunting down the opposition and made a couple of crucial tackles that had supporters on their feet at Ibrox.

Fans are delighted that he looks like staying at the club and with his performance, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts after last night’s match…
