Rangers fans react on Twitter to Tavernier display in Aberdeen victory

By Dominic Toner

James Tavernier completed 90 minutes for Rangers in their win over Aberdeen – and the club’s supporters were highly critical of him on Twitter.

The 26-year-old kept his place in Pedro Caixinha’s side, but the manager decided to make two changes as Kenny Miller and Jon Total were recalled to the starting XI.

The Gers managed to keep their hopes up of a second-placed finish this season by recording a 3-0 away victory at Aberdeen.

Veteran forward Kenny Miller sparked the game into life with a goal in the 79th minute, before adding his second in the 81st.

Substitute Joe Dodoo then netted again just two minutes later and meant they moved nine points behind second-placed Aberdeen.

Rangers fans highlighted the performance of Tavernier despite the win and expressed their anger with the right-back.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Tavernier has been an ever-present in the Gers side this season and made 37 appearances across all competitions.

The Englishman has been the first-choice right-back this campaign and is renowned for his attacking style, while Lee Hodson is his understudy.

He has contributed to seven goals directly, but many feels feel that he is not strong enough defensively.

The Gers travel to Partick in their next game and will hope to reduce the deficit to Aberdeen, before a Scottish Cup semi-final against Old Firm rivals Celtic.
