James Tavernier believes he can still get better at Rangers
Rangers star James Tavernier believes that he can still get better at Ibrox after he made his 300th appearance for the club on Saturday.
Speaking to the Daily Record, the captain seemed to suggest that he thinks he has more to give and that his time in Glasgow has flown by.
Rangers signed the 29-year-old from Wigan Athletic in 2015, and he hasn’t looked back and has become a crucial player.
He said: “300 games is a lot, but it feels as though they have come fast. It’s the overall progression of the club, seeing how the team has come on since I have been here.
“We’re reaching new heights, always demanding and wanting better from each other. As long as we continue doing that every day on the training pitch and in games and getting better and better, then the club will be in a great place.
“We’re always wanting more, always more hungry. It has been a great journey, but I have still got loads to go, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
A positive message from Tavernier.
Since he has been at the club, Tavernier has contributed to 160 goals, which for a right-back is incredible.
Yes, he is one of the main set-piece and penalty takers, but that is still some record, and it is no wonder that Steven Gerrard has described him as a “powerhouse” in the past [Daily Record].
He has young Nathan Patterson breathing down his neck, but this is a positive message from Tavernier, and it seems to suggest that he wants to keep improving.
The former Newcastle United player has just under three years left on his contract, and it doesn’t appear as if he is thinking about leaving any time soon.
There have been times in the past when has been criticised by Gers fans but these are strong words from the right-back, and we look forward to watching him improve [Transfer Tavern].
