Rangers fans are not happy with captain James Tavernier after his costly mistake in today’s Scottish Premiership loss away to Celtic.
Losing the match 2-1 after a late James Forrest goal, Tavernier’s unfortunate contribution in the build up to that effort directly contributed to the defeat.
He slackly played the ball back into no man’s land, which was capitalised on by Callum McGregor, who fed the ball into Odsonne Edouard, who delivered the final ball and assist for Forrest.
We’re now 13 points behind Celtic at the top of the table, with our title challenge in tatters.
It’s one of a number of defensive howlers from the 27-year-old during his career at the club and for many it appears to be the final straw when it comes to their judgement of the player.
Should Steven Gerrard consider selling him when the summer transfer window opens?
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday display…
@James_Tavernier never a captain or a leader not his fault he was given the captains armband! But what was that! Amateur footballers don't even make mistakes like that!

We will never win anything with Tavernier as captain it’s simple!

1-1.. in the ascendancy… ball under control, and our captain cant play a pass when under zero pressure. We WILL NOT improve until tavernier is replaced

Tavernier makes an error at the worst possible time. He is a good player but not a @RangersFC captain. Lacks composure for me. Gifted Celtic a win today.

Simply we will never challenge for titles & cups with continued failures like Tavernier & Halliday in team. Sorry but that is a FACT!!!

I'm sorry. I'm not jumping on the bandwagon slating Morelos
I am however absolutely disgusted that tavernier is still at our club
Time and time again he has cost our club, the only player from the 5-1 games that's continued to play in that blue jersey…
Get HIM to fuck
