Rangers adopt high-risk strategy after reportedly slapping £4m price-tag on mainstay
The Rangers side that starts next season under incoming manager Steven Gerrard could look completely different from the one that just ended the season, as reports emerge that the Gers are contemplating selling some of the mainstays of the side.
The Scottish Sun claims that Crystal Palace are set to bid £3.5million for James Tavernier, but that the Ibrox side are holding out for £4million for the senior player, who has captained the Gers are various times last season.
The decision on Tavernier’s future will be made by director of football Mark Allen and Gerrard, who perhaps feel that selling the player will fund more signings to add to the impending Gerrard revolution.
Tavernier has been a big success for the Gers since joining the club from Wigan in 2015, and has been a mainstay of the side, making 46 appearances and scoring nine goals, which is an excellent return from a right-back.
It is a high-risk strategy that the Gers could be adopting, if they decide to sell one of their best players to bring in some new signings, but after a few poor seasons which have amounted to failure, perhaps Allen and Gerrard feel that this is the way to go.

Fans will initially get behind any decision that Gerrard and Allen make, but if things go wrong next season then the strategy will not have been worth the gamble that was taken.
