James Tavernier is once again testing Rangers fans’ patience as the Ibrox captain once again bumped his gums with threats at Celtic in lieu of the semi-final this month.

Following promises before the final, before promises before the weekend, Tavernier is showing his sharp reading of situations by doing it all over again and threatening Celtic.

Leading like a true captain, Tavernier has clearly decided he’s been quiet for long enough, so the man with the armband is showing an example to all with wisdom aimed at those rubbish Celtic players and their rubbishy team, explaining we’re gonna do them:

“It was disappointing to come away with nothing. We wanted to come away with three points. We’ve obviously got an important game against them in three weeks’ time, so if we take the positives out of this game and apply ourselves in the same way – with a bit more – then I’m really confident in the team. The game in three weeks time is obviously massive and we’ve got to make sure we get in the final. We have to move on. We have to finish the season as strong as possible.”

We’re glad you’re confident Tav, glad that you’re representing the club in this way and speaking on behalf of everyone by explaining that a draw and two losses gives you confidence for the semi-final.

Ever get tired of hearing our players talking crap?

Ibrox Noise is, hearing the bragging, the bluster, the promises, the half-hearted apologies:

It’s as much a psychology as anything else, where our players seem to only know how they THINK they should respond to adversity, and then Tavernier comes out and repeats it like an unconvincing broken record.

In fairness he’s the only one speaking up at all, the rest all being rather quiet since the latest loss, but hearing the same cliches coming from the guy over and over as if the next time is going to be any different because he sounds so much more determined now… isn’t that convincing.

We wish the players would do the talking on the pitch, but it seems that’s just not the case any more.
