angers captain James Tavernier insists his side need to copy Manchester City and Liverpool and be more consistent over the course of the season if they are to win the league from Celtic.
The Gers secured a second-place finish with yesterday’s 2-0 win over Aberdeen but Tavernier wants to make sure the Light Blues go one better next season.

Tav admitted that there can’t be any “speed bumps” if they are to win the title or it will “cost you.”
“You have seen it in the Premier League — Manchester City and Liverpool have been terrific all season,” Tavernier said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“That is what it takes to win a league, you can’t have any speed bumps during a season because it will cost you.
“We need to be more consistent and make sure that doesn’t happen next season.”
The biggest issue for the Gers this season has been the number of draws – many of which came from winning positions.

Despite only losing once more than Celtic, an extra three draws have really hindered the Light Blues, particularly since the winter break.
If Gerrard’s side can stop giving away silly points then they’ll be in a much better position next season.
