James Tavernier delivers Twitter verdict on Rangers win at St Johnstone
Rangers star James Tavernier has encouraged his team-mates to “keep this momentum going” after the Gers won their fifth consecutive game with a dominant 4-1 win over St. Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday night.
Tavernier captained the Gers and scored the opening goal as Graeme Murty’s side ran out comfortable winners after three first-half strikes had them cruising against the Saints.
Strikes from Josh Windass, Sean Goss and Alfredo Morelos and Tavernier’s early penalty secured the win that takes the Gers to six points behind league leaders Celtic with nine games left.
Tavernier was delighted to get another win and encouraged his team-mates to push on in an instant reaction posted shortly after full-time.
“Another 3 points on the board. Let’s keep this momentum going,” Tavernier said on his personal Twitter account.

The defender recently penned a new deal to keep him at Ibrox until 2021 after arguably the best form of his Rangers career this season.
Since arriving at Ibrox the 27-year-old has made 129 appearances, scoring 23 times and creating 38 assists and has been a standout for the Ibrox giants througout his time with the Gers.
Tavernier has lifted the Scottish Championship and Scottish Challenge Cup for the Gers and could take a step closer to getting his hands on the first major trophy of his time at Ibrox when the Gers face Falkirk in the Scottish Cup quarter-final on Sunday.
