Rangers skipper James Tavernier has praised Ibrox duo Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos for their performance in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Aberdeen – expressing his delight at seeing Morelos back among the goals.

Morelos netted a double at Pittodrie as he took his tally in the Premiership to 50 goals in 109 appearances for the Gers and Tav was ecstatic to see him get the rewards for his hard work.

Tav had praise for both players – as well as a mention for Ianis Hagi – as he assessed the win which left Steven Gerrard’s side sitting 22 points ahead of bitter rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

“Alfredo’s starting to get his goals back and he has been working extremely hard on the training pitch and even during games when he’s not been scoring,” Tavernier said [Rangers TV].

“He has been working hard for the team so I am delighted to see him get two goals today.

 

“I thought Ryan Kent was tremendous, he was always a threat. I could say that about all the boys, Ianis as well.

“There were threats all over the place and we are probably slightly disappointed that we didn’t get more goals but like I said three points and we move on.”

With 13 Celtic players and staff isolating ahead of tonight’s Premiership clash with Hibs, Rangers could see their lead remain at 22 points.
