Rangers’ flying right-back James Tavernier is subject to interest from English Championship side Leeds United, sources claim today.
The marauding fullback dubbed ‘The Blue Cafu’ by Rangers fans who have taken him as one of their own, has today once again sworn loyalty to Ibrox, stating he is here till Rangers are least back in Europe, but that did not stop Leeds’ chief scout Martyn Glover attending Almondvale yesterday to scope the defender out in view of a potential January bid.
The source said:
“Leeds United have made an enquiry about Tavernier and their chief scout (Martyn Glover) was at Almondvale yesterday.”
Tavernier has repeatedly professed his love for Rangers, and how he is here for the long haul, and given his importance to Mark Warburton’s system any bid is likely to be rejected – but money always talks and his performances (and goals) will certainly have gained attention from sides down south.
