James Tavernier is once again under major fire for yet more uncaptainlike comments after not only claiming Rangers players lacked hunger, but then changing his mind and saying they were just plain outclassed.
The least worthy Rangers captain in the club’s history, aside Gavin Rae, was speaking after the latest and final UCL debacle, and just like those years ago when he handwrung in the Rangers match program, he once more behaved anything like a Rangers captain does by talking, quite frankly, nonsense to the press.
On top of the fact that once again a glaring error from him led to a goal (several UCL goals Rangers have conceded have been down to him, just like Aberdeen’s opener was at the weekend too), the captain engaged mouth before brain, admitting his team lacked hunger before denying it then just saying they weren’t good enough.
Last time this happened Ibrox Noise got dog’s abuse for calling him out on blaming his team mates for not repairing his own error, we doubt this time he will get the same types defending his absolutely shocking comments.
Tavernier is not a captain. Hell he’s barely even a RB. All that stunning form he had for 55 is a distant memory and not only is he simply not up to scratch as the club’s leader, he’s no longer any good as a RB either.
Tavernier got complacent – a few crosses and penalties and he thinks he’s Sergio Ramos. Too many errors, too many mistakes, too much immunity from ever being dropped, Tavernier is becoming a huge problem now on the pitch, if he ever wasn’t.
Problem is all we have to replace him is Adam Devine. Thanks to Tav’s immunity Patterson never had a chance, and now he’s a top class PL player, infinitely superior in every way to Tavernier.
Once again those sliding doors have shown what we could have had – instead we have the Travesty Tav ruining it for everyone else as has been the routine in recent months.
As you may guess we’re not fans of this captain, and his comments only cement that.
