Rangers would be crazy to sell James Tavernier in January

Rangers captain James Tavernier splits opinion amongst fans like few others at Ibrox – but the Gers must ignore any bids for their skipper.
Various clubs, including Fenerbahce and Brighton,  have been credited with an interest but none have made any official offers – and chances are there will be more links again this month.

For all of the assists he contributes and impressive performances, some still think he is vastly over-rated.

Despite this, the right-back has been a constant subject of gossip over the last few transfer windows.
Unless there is crazy money on the table though, it would be madness to sell Tavernier now with a title at stake.

Nobody has really tested Rangers’ resolve with a serious offer and one now wouldn’t be welcome.

With only Jon Flanagan as a realistic replacement, it wouldn’t make any sense to sell now.
Every player has his price, but any future sale should only be done on our terms.

Nine goals and 14 assists in 37 games this season is a phenomenal return.

That should be reflected in the player’s value and not sold on the cheap to some mid-table Championship team.
There will almost certainly be exits from Ibrox this month but Tavernier can’t be one.
If the Gers do sell Tav, it might just end up costing them the title.
