James Tavernier's son scores for Rangers youth side at Man City Academy

The son of Rangers captain James Tavernier has been spotted scoring a screamer for an Ibrox youth side – by the Gers skipper himself.

Gers captain Tav uploaded a clip of his son scoring a goal for a Rangers youth side with the caption “like Father like Son” on his Instagram story.

Playing at what looks like the Manchester City Academy, the boys involved are clearly relatively young but it’s a lovely finish from Tav’s son.

The youngster – who also adorns the #2 like his old man – cut in from the right before lashing it over the top of the goalkeeper into the far corner.

It’s certainly a strike the Ibrox skipper would be proud of and he was clearly delighted to see his son net for the Ibrox youth side.

The Ibrox skipper has become synonymous with Rangers ever since joining in 2015 and given his legacy at the club what a nice turn of events it’d be to see his boy rising up through the youth ranks.

Tavernier, 30, remains the subject of much intrigue this season with Ibrox talent Nathan Patterson chomping at the bit for an opportunity at right-back.

However, Tav has once again stepped up to be counted this season and proved his worth in the 3-1 win over Livingston with another pair of assists which ultimately proved the difference.

That means that so far this season Tavernier has 13 assists and three goals in 22 games, an outstanding return for a right-back.

Let’s hope that the Ibrox skipper’s son can perhaps follow in his footsteps but how lucky we’d be to have another player who shoulders the Rangers responsibility James Tavernier does on the horizon.

Meanwhile, the Ibrox skipper is one of four players mentioned in a new Rangers chant to the tune of an ABBA classic.
