Michael Stewart stunned by James Tavernier in Rangers win v St Johnstone

Michael Stewart has been very vocal about things off the pitch at Rangers this week, but it was all about the action on it over the weekend.

The Bears struggled to a 2-1 victory against St Johnstone, with a moment of magic from James Tavernier sealing all three points.

Stewart was stunned by the skipper and labelled his strike as “sensational” as the top spot was secured at the end of match week five.

Speaking on BBC Sportscene, Stewart couldn’t help but wax lyrical of what he saw from Tavernier at McDiarmid Park.

“They (St Johnstone) lose to what is an incredible goal,” he said.

“Sometimes you’ve just got to take your hat off and say well done, it’s just a sensational strike, it really is.

“The rest of it, you just can’t stop it.”


We are quickly running out of superlatives to describe Tavernier as his wild Ibrox journey continues every single week.

After handing the penalty to Kemar Roofe, there could easily have been suggestions of a lack of confidence, but they were thrown out of the window before full-time.

The right-back only had one thing in mind when receiving the ball, and he executed it perfectly as the ball flew into the top corner.

At first, it looked as though it was going miles over but the dip on the ball was out of this world and another sign of his quality.

When even Stewart has to take off his hat, you know it is something special and it was a goal worthy of winning three points in any game.
