Rangers star to let it be known he wants to quit - Sources

Rangers skipper James Tavernier is to let it be know he is keen to quit the club this summer, Football Insider understands.

The future of the right-back, 28, is up in the air at the end of another campaign that has failed to live up to expectations and amid growing criticism from supporters.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Tavernier is willing for the word to go out to prospective clubs south of the border that he is open to a return to England.

This comes after Football Insider revealed the Light Blues are willing to slash the asking price for the full-back to around £4m to let him go this summer.

Tavernier has previously been the subject of enquiries and offers from the likes of Newcastle United, Aston Villa and West Brom.

Rangers refused to cash in on the long-serving star in previous windows, most notably in the summers of 2018 and 2019.

They gave him a lucrative contract in September 2018 as a reward for staying but that now has just over two years remaining.

Plans are currently on hold for all clubs amid uncertainty over when the season will resume.

But there will still be a transfer window when it is eventually complete and there is a strong possibility that Tavernier will leave.

His reputation has been hit by the events of the last few months, which has left Rangers’ trophy hopes in tatters.

Supporters were furious with Tavernier after he used his programme notes ahead of the 1-0 home defeat to Hamilton Academical earlier this month to admit the team can’t cope under pressure.
