Fans will back Gerrard decision even if it means first-team regular departs Rangers


It would be a bit of a shock if James Tavernier was allowed to leave Rangers this summer, as he has been one of the most consistent players for the Light Blues since they returned to the Scottish Premiership.

But that could well be the case, as the Scottish Sun claims that the Ibrox side will accept bids of £3.5million for the right-back.

The Gers have already been linked with a replacement for Tavernier, with the Daily Record reporting that Liverpool free-agent Jon Flanagan is a target to join the Steven Gerrard revolution.

Perhaps Steven Gerrard sees Flanagan – if he signs – as an upgrade on the former Wigan man. Of course, it all remains to be seen if any club meet the valuation for the right-back, but £3.5million could well be a bit of a bargain, especially in these days of huge transfer fees.

Nine goals and nine assists is a very good record for a defender, and the Gers would miss Tavernier’s swashbuckling style of play should he be sold in the summer, and he is a first-team regular too, having made 46 appearances last season.

But the decision is up to Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen, and if they believe that the Gers can do better in the right-back area of the side then so be it, and Tavernier will be sold as long as the price is right.

Even though Tavernier has been a big player for the Gers in recent years, there is no doubt that fans would get behind whatever decision Gerrard makes on the future of the player, as they have bought into his upcoming Ibrox revolution with plenty of conviction.
