Sir Kenny Dalglish picks Rangers ace James Tavernier to win Player of the Year award

Sir Kenny Dalglish has been blown away by the performances of Rangers skipper James Tavernier in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The defender has been nominated for the Player of the Year Award alongside his teammates, Steven Davis, Conor Goldson and Allan McGregor.

Dalglish believes Tavernier deserves the accolade, for what has been an “incredible” campaign filled with goals and assists.

Writing in his Sunday Post column, Dalglish was full of praise for the Bears skipper who has been untouchable this season.

“It’s hard to single one out because they are all worthy of being on the list,” he wrote.

“But, personally, I would narrow it down to Tavernier and Davis. The captain has scored 18 goals this season and had countless assists. His campaign really has been quite incredible.

“But I’m going to give my vote to Tavernier.”


Whoever takes home the award will have earned it, with every last player in this Bears squad simply outstanding all season.

Steven Gerrard’s men are only two games away from an invincible campaign, and that hasn’t been celebrated enough after years of torment.

Tavernier’s numbers for a right-back are simply irresistable though, and you would find it nearly impossible to find another player in history who has done something similar.

The skipper has been involved in 20 goals, and regardless of some of them being penalties, he has been outstanding.

We all remember that free-kick at Dundee earlier in the season, he could have won the award for that strike alone, he has been incredible.
