Rangers skipper James Tavernier receives yet more SPFL recognition after stunning display

Rangers skipper James Tavernier has received yet more recognition from the SPFL amid his outstanding run of form [SPFL].

Tavernier has been the outstanding player in Scotland so far this season, leading by example at Ibrox and pushing his side to new heights.

The right-back has helped to secure 14 clean sheets from 17 Premiership matches, while he’s scored more goals (11) and produced more assists (8) than anyone else in the top flight.

On Sunday, he boosted his tallies against Dundee United with an incredible long-range free-kick and an assist for Connor Goldson’s header, as the Gers triumphed 2-1 at Tannadice.

Once again, he was the architect of a Rangers win and subsequently, he has been rewarded with a spot in the SPFL TOTW.

Tavernier was named on the right side of a midfield four but missed out on the Star Man accolade, which went to Aberdeen’s Curtis Main.

The 29-year-old has already made the select XI on multiple occasions this season, though, and was named the Premiership Player of the Month for both September and November.

It’s not just domestic football he’s been thriving in, either, with the Rangers captain spending time as the top-ranked defender in the Europa League earlier in the season.

Tavernier will be hoping to continue his remarkable run on Wednesday night by helping his side progress to the League Cup semi-finals with a win over St Mirren, but the Gers will be without a key man for the clash due to injury.
