Rangers captain James Tavernier has had the last laugh over counterpart Scott Brown as the Gers condemned Celtic to a trophyless campaign and halted their claims to 10IAR.
The Ibrox skipper has experienced plenty of downs during his spell at Ibrox and has been a leading light – particularly in the early part of the campaign – in this legendary Gers season.
The campaign is set to send Brown to the Pittodrie scrapheap empty-handed with his Parkhead legacy chinked and no glorious send-off for a player generally loathed by the Ibrox legions.
It’s a feeling which is generally mutual.
As Brown prepares to face off against Rangers for the final time in a Celtic jersey this weekend Tavernier was posed a question regarding his rival skipper’s final game.
And it’s fair to say Tavernier wasn’t eager to indulge in any sentiment when it came to the 36-year-old.
“It’s been like coming up against any other opposition player, really,” said Tav [Scotsman].
“I certainly know the players quite well now. You just play against them, just play the game.
“It’s not something I can comment on really. It’s his last game and it’s our last game against them this season.”
Rangers are preparing to welcome Celtic to Ibrox for the final time this season with the Gers three games from an unbeaten Scottish Premiership campaign.
The Gers are also set to pitch in an inexperienced defender for the clash as the team suffers from a number of injuries ahead of the game.
