Rangers captain James Tavernier appeared to treat himself to a chippy after the 2-0 win over Celtic as he was snapped in a chip shop by an excited fan.

Once again the Ibrox skipper was in fine form as he provided an assist for Connor Goldson’s first goal and was an imposing, disciplined presence on the right hand side.

And after helping the Gers to a big victory on enemy soil, Tavernier appeared to get himself a well-earned chippy after the game.

James Tavernier, 28, has taken a major step forward this season and now looks a more composed and determined figure.

The marauding right-back has always been able to provide goals and assists but issues have remained around high-profile mistakes and questions about the player’s mentality.

 

But as Rangers have started this season in good form Tavernier’s performances sum up everything which is good about the team right now.

Driven, organised, focused and full of quality, Tavernier is the leader of a team who finally look ready to stake a claim for Rangers at the top of the Scottish game.

Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard has challenged Tavernier to silence his doubters by getting his hands on silverware for Rangers.

“I think Tav is someone who, when he goes through the gears, is unstoppable, and we have seen that, or flashes of that so far this season,” said Gerrard, as quoted by Rangers.co.uk

“I think he is really close to being at his best.

“Tav is a huge player. He doesn’t get the credit he deserves I don’t think from our own supporters or the credit he deserves from outside.

“I think he needs to go and win something as a captain and a leader to really get the credit he deserves, but to see him on a daily basis, I am certainly someone who really appreciates him for us.”
