'Unreal' - BBC pundit blown away by Rangers player after win v Ayr
BBC Sport Scotland pundit Tam McManus has admitted that he was blown away by James Tavernier’s “unreal” crossing ability in the 6-1 Scottish Cup win against Ayr on Sunday.
The Light Blues came from a goal behind to hammer the Scottish League One club with Alfredo Morelos and Josh Windass bagging a brace each with goals from January signings Jason Cummings and Jamie Murphy rounding off the win.
Tavernier, 27, has been in top form this season but in the past few weeks since the winter break the former Newcastle right-back has really started to show yet more improvements.
Former Hibernian player McManus was left raving about Tavernier during Rangers’ win against Ayr, and took to social media to show just how impressed he was.
“Tavernier’s delivery is unreal. Brilliant going forward. That’s an absolute sitter put it right on his heid,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Sunday afternoon.

Tavernier has made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Gers this season, scoring six goals and supplying eight assists in the process.
He has started all but one of the Glasgow clubs’ games in the Scottish Premiership and scored in last week’s 2-0 win against Partick Thistle.
The 27-year-old will no doubt be looking to continue his impressive form when Graeme Murty’s side take on Hamilton when Premiership action resumes on Sunday against Hamilton at the SuperSeal Stadium.
Rangers are currently third in the top-flight, three points behind second-placed Aberdeen.
