Rangers captain James Tavernier has confirmed he’ll return to full training tomorrow after overcoming Covid-19, with the Gers skipper admitting he ‘can’t wait’ to return.
Tavernier missed the games against Alashkert and Celtic with Nathan Patterson and Leon Balogun deputising for the Rangers right-back.
After his spell on the sidelines, Tavernier will resume full training after a couple of light sessions – although Tav confessed he’s still not got his taste back after having most of the symptoms of the virus.
“I can’t wait to get back into training. I’ve had a couple of sessions so far,” Tavernier said on his Twitch channel.
“I’m back in normal tomorrow. Can’t wait.
“I’m feeling better now. It’s been pretty bad. I think I’ve had all of it (symptoms) except the temperature.
“I still don’t have my taste back.
“I was meant to go out for a family dinner but didn’t see much point if I can’t taste anything.”
Tavernier’s return to action means he will likely come back into the side next weekend when Rangers make the trip north to Perth.
Callum Davidson’s side will be a tough challenge for Rangers after the international break but with Gerrard having a host of players return, the Gers should be much closer to full strength at McDiarmid Park.
Meanwhile, a key Rangers star has been talking about his future at Ibrox amid £15m links out of the club this summer.
