As we touched on earlier, following yet another rudderless display by James Tavernier, his captaincy really is starting to grate on a lot of fans.
We have discussed this topic many times, and we admit it sounds like an agenda and a stuck record, but we truly have nothing against Tavernier.
He just shouldn’t be captain and it was a pretty short-sighted decision by Steven Gerrard to make him it.
Every match we seem to get swamped under a deluge of messages and comments arguing the case against Tav for the armband, and as regular readers will know, we support this view entirely.
We have praised many times his attacking qualities, and been critical of the lack of his defensive ones, but it is only a minority of fans who want him leading the team out.
And with Ryan Jack’s new deal announced today, it’s led to calls for the ex-Aberdeen captain to be made Rangers’ leader too.
It did take Jack a while to get going at Ibrox, but while his performances have been slightly inconsistent now and then, when he’s good he’s excellent – but whether we’d view him as big enough mentally for the armband is another matter.
Other contenders who stand out are Gareth McAuley, an experienced campaigner who has made the defence far more robust the past two matches and whose leadership has boosted Connor Goldson’s form significantly, and Scott Arfield who clearly leads from the middle and helps both the younger forwards ahead of him, and the younger midfielders behind him.
The one other notable shout is Allan McGregor but we’re wary of having a number one as captain. We’d like to say Lee Wallace as well but that ship has well and truly sailed.
So, it really does boil down to personal opinion, and while we have asked this poll before, we’ll do it again.
Who would you now have as captain of the mentioned contenders?
