Rangers fans are being invited to take part in a special commemorative Captain’s Dinner recognising the contribution of current skipper James Tavernier.
Tav, 29, is the club’s longest-serving active player and led the squad and club to that legendary 55th league title and Rangers’ first since the financial problems of 2012 saw them demoted.
💙 Our Club, Our Captain, Our Champion.
🏆 Join us on Sunday the 19th of September for the Captain's Dinner with our 55th title winning Captain, James Tavernier.

It was a title victory 10 years in the making and Tavernier experienced six of those after joining the club in 2015 following the appointment of Mark Warburton as Ibrox manager.
Joining with the Gers in the Scottish Championship, the marauding full-back’s contribution has been legendary and now supporters can applaud the captain at a special dinner.
“Rangers are delighted to present a Captain’s Dinner with 55th title winning captain James Tavernier on Sunday, September 19,” reads an event page on the Rangers website.
“Tavernier will be joined by players past and present at the Doubletree by Hilton, Glasgow for a special evening which will include a three-course meal, auction and raffle and guest speakers.
“The Rangers captain will also take part in a Q&A session at the dinner, alongside guests.
“Tickets cost £110 + VAT per person, or £1100 + VAT for a table of 10.”
Tavernier has made 295 appearances for Rangers since joining the Gers from Wigan Athletic in 2015 and has gone on to become synonymous with the club.
The right-back has scored 65 goals in total for the club and also laid on a remarkable 94 assists, meaning that Tav has had a remarkable 159 goal contributions.
There’s little doubt that as far as players who joined the club post-2012 go, Tavernier is the one most associated with legendary status.
A future Rangers Hall of Famer, this is your opportunity to celebrate the contribution the right-back has made to the club’s success.
The Ibrox skipper also reiterated his commitment to life at Rangers in the summer amid links to a Premier League giant.
