Rangers

Paul Robinson insists plenty of Premier League clubs will be looking to sign James Tavernier from Rangers this summer. 

However, the former Spurs stopper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, doubts Tavernier wants to leave Ibrox.

The Rangers captain was awarded the PFA Scottish Player of the Year award at the weekend.

Tavernier, 29, picked up 19 goals and 16 assists in all competitions this season as Rangers went unbeaten in the Premiership.

He missed eight games towards the end of the season after picking up a knee injury but was fit enough to lead the Gers out for their last four league games.

Robinson compared Tavernier to Trent Alexander-Arnold after his prolific season from right back.

“That’s an incredible return from right back,” Robinson told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“He’s like Trent Alexander-Arnold going forward, what Tavernier has done is incredible. 

“The whole Rangers team have had an incredible season. But for player of the season, he was a shoo-in for that. 

“He’s got defensive capabilities as well as his attacking capabilities, he’s a top player. 

“There will be a lot of Premier League clubs looking at him, and trying to sign him, but there’s a huge draw to being at Rangers at the moment.”
