'Incredible' Rangers player attracting interest 'Across Europe' - Robinson Exclusive
Rangers captain James Tavernier will be attracting the attention of club’s across Europe with his performances this season, according to Paul Robinson.
The former England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, is blown away by the 29-year-old’s “incredible” goal and assist return this season.
Tavernier added his 16th goal and 11th assist of the season in a 4-0 win at Ross County on Sunday as Steven Gerrard’s side moved 13 points clear of Old Firm rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
While the right-back is on penalty duties for the Light Blues, he has scored a remarkable seven goals from open play in all competitions.
Robinson suggested a large portion of the Englishman’s success is owed to the impact of Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.
“Tavernier’s form will be attracting the attention of club’s across Europe,” he told Football Insider.

“It is an incredible return for a right-back. The goal return alone is absolutely incredible for a defender let alone with the assists.
“He is an integral part of a Rangers team that is flying at the moment.
“Steven Gerrard has done a brilliant job in Scotland since he has been there. He has turned the fortunes of the club and some of the players around.”
Speaking on his captain yesterday, Gerrard said: “Sensational and he deserves all the plaudits.
“It’s top level stuff. I have played with some fantastic attacking right-backs – Kyle Walker, Glen Johnson, Steve Finnan to name a few but Tav is right up there.”
