Rangers put in a sub-par performance last night and wound up losing to Aberdeen at Ibrox in a game that we could rue come the end of the campaign.
Winning games like that – especially at home – is a must, and the Gers never really looked like earning the three points.
They could have played until midnight and they still wouldn’t have scored with too many proving passengers and too many going hiding.
Certainly, a fair few needed a shake during the game but many were not impressed by James Tavernier’s efforts to do so.
He isn’t a shouter and it seems as though some felt that he needed to give a few a rocket during the game.
I like Tav, myself, but I can see why he divides opinion – especially on nights like last night.
Here, then, is the reaction to him with many wondering whether he should be captain for the Gers much longer:
@James_Tavernier i don’t normally do this, but as team captain… is there any chance you can sort out the hunger to win games like that and also work on concentration? Those games are the ones that will cost us winning leagues and cups.

Where’s @James_Tavernier passion? Fight? Determination?

James Tavernier should not be in the starting team never mind be captain of it

James Tavernier earns atleast £15,000 per week just let that sink in
If that doesn't motivate you to play Football I don't know what will

I give you the (So called) Rangers Captain James Tavernier
He gives you a fright every now and again, then reminds you of some of the good times you had with him only to disappear again when you really need him
