Charlie Adam has backed Rangers captain James Tavernier to beat his goalscoring record of 17 strikes this season.

Tavernier scored once again in the Europa League clash against Standard Liege on Thursday and is leaving the likes of Alfredo Morelos behind.

The right-back took home the November Player of the Month award this week and will be looking to add the Golden Boot award to that this season.


Adam claims that Tavernier epitomises everything it means to be a Rangers captain and that he is clearly one of the best in Scotland.

“I have seen him today saying that he wants to beat 17 goals, the highest he had at Rangers and he will definitely beat that,” he told PLZ Soccer.

“He has been one of the best players and he is a leader on and off the pitch. He has shown what it is to be a Rangers captain.”


What more could we ask for?

Tavernier isn’t only one of the best full-backs in Scotland, but it will be hard to find another who has similar returns across the world.

The 29-year-old has 15 goals and seven assists already in all competitions this season, and although the majority are penalties, he is always in the right areas.

Even with penalties, Tavernier has only been expected to score 10.57 goals according to WyScout, proving he is over-performing by quite some distance.

Tavernier is going to smash this record, and will likely pass 20 in what could be a season to remember for many different reasons at Ibrox.
