Former Rangers man Neil McCann has suggested that Premier League clubs could make offers to sign James Tavernier in January.
Speaking after Rangers’ 4-0 win over Ross County, as reported by the Daily Mail, McCann speculated that the Gers may struggle to keep their club captain beyond the January window.
When asked about the defender’s future, he said: “Listen, I don’t want James Tavernier to leave Rangers.
“I firmly believe they have a chance of winning the title, or at least a trophy this season, and he is fundamental to it but I’d be very surprised if a Premier League club does not make an approach for him in January.
“In fact, I can’t believe they haven’t had offers for him already.”
Tavernier was on the scoresheet once again on Sunday, recording his 10th league goal of the season.
Tavernier has become such a pivotal part of Gerrard’s side this season and his form is a testament to how well the Gers are playing.
He has an incredible 16 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season.
More impressively, he has recorded either a goal or an assist in eight of his last 10 games in all competitions.
The right-back is out of contract in 2022, so Rangers will no doubt be keen to resolve his future as quickly as possible.
While there have been some reports linking him with a move away from the club in the past, Tavernier looks set to lead the club to glory this season and that lure of a trophy may just be enough to ensure he remains at Ibrox beyond the January window.
We certainly can’t see Gerrard or the board sanctioning a move for a player like Tavernier this January.
