Rangers captain, James Tavernier, takes a lot of criticism from the fans.
After the defeat at Kilmarnock, detractors once again questioned his suitability as skipper.
It goes to show just how much can change, in a few weeks.
At the end of last month, he was Captain Fantastic, after an outstanding Old Firm display.
According to reports this week,
During Friday’s press conference, Steven Gerrard confirmed the USA international had been granted a work permit.
“Hopefully, once the paperwork is sorted on that, he’ll be added to the squad in the coming days”, explained the manager.
A converted right-back, Polster will finally bring a viable alternative to Tavernier.
With the American’s arrival, Tavernier can rest assured he won’t be required to play 37 matches on the spin again.
What’s more, he has someone who can push him in training.
No doubt, the skipper is a good self-motivator.
He needs to be, having had a nailed on starting berth at the club for the last several seasons.
Yet, a new arrival and some genuine competition, should help him kick on, as well as reducing the huge pressure currently on the 27-year-old.
