Was reading this morning that rangers have been inandated with enquiries about our captain james tavernier. Like we all know money talks, as supposedly rangers have put a valuation of at least 10million on tav, for any interested clubs, wishing to buy him. The biggest losses to rangers imo, would be if either tav or scotty arfield are sold. They for me would undoubtedly be the hardest to replace. Like i said money does talk but i'd still be absolutely gutted, if tav or arfield are sold,
James tavernier has to be easily one of the fittest footballers in british football, as he has an engine to die for. The guy is a total athlete and superb modern day right full back. I just can't for the life of me understand why a good few of our supporters don't rate tav. They will only realise how good he is, when he's gone. Be careful what you wish for tav haters. Before its again said, i know he's not the greatest defender, but has improved in that department a lot last season. But if for a minute you look around at all the modern day full backs of any league,
they are all geared and much better going forward, than defending. that's just the way the game is now guys. Tav IS by far the best right back in scottish football and out of all the full backs in scottish football imo, only kieran tierney is arguably better than tav!
Actually most of tav's stats are way superior to tierney's! Fact!

Tav is ok arfield is good the buffalo can score but kamara is the jewel in the crown he will reach the top of his profession.

15 Jun 2019 11:56:46
You lost me a 10m coops, Ill run about Ibrox naked if we get close to that value. half of us want rid of him due to his poor positioning and lack of concentration, the other half think hes Cafu. hell go for no more than 4m (which Id still be shocked at) or hell stay and have another reasonable season. Hell be involved in marginally more goals than he costs us.

15 Jun 2019 12:02:31
That's ridiculous katic. What would the point in selling for 4mill? That wouldn't get us anywhere near half the player tav is to replace him with.

15 Jun 2019 12:03:41
Katic, everyone is entitled to their opinion and in my opinion, you dont have a clue about what makes a good footballer.

Tav is rated very highly by every professional who has voiced an opinion. Our manager rates him and has backed him as captain.

Time for you to wake up and smell the coffee - you can believe the world is flat but the rest of us know that the experts and facts and stats say otherwise.

15 Jun 2019 13:05:58
I fully understand what makes a good footballer however you dont pay 10m for a good footballer, you pay that for an excellent footballer something Tav is not (good yes excellent no) . In Scotland weve had c.7 players who have went for more than 10m (excluding real terms as I cant be bother working out the true transfer value for everybody) . All these players were under the age of 25 with an average age of 23, Tav is 28 this year and this will likely be his big move (I. e if he moves the club will lose money on the transfer) . I believe 11 of his 14 goals were penalties? If so then a purchasing club will not consider these within the price as most clubs will have a penalty taker. In a poor league he has a good number of assists and again his scored 3 (possibly 4) which will increase his value a bit. Most importantly for a right back is his defensive awareness, positioning, concentration and tackling, these are attributes with Tav is not great at and in some cases hes average (positioning and tackling for example) . Clubs will consider this when determine the offer value and as such I believe 4m would actually benefit us. Again remember guys this is poorly my opinion however I believe there is logic to why Id suggest a value of 4m, I look forward to any replies which can prove why it should be higher. Remember your best player isnt always your captain.

15 Jun 2019 13:06:30
Lets be realistic here.
Tav is a decent RB, no more. To say he is the best in Scotland, well that wouldn't be hard.
10 million? well that is small money down south and a 10 million RB is not EPL material.
He is more than good enough for us up here against moderate players but would be found wanting down south.
If you think otherwise then you are kidding yourself on.

Am i a Tav hater? no because i want him to stay but i am not accepting that he is a class act.

15 Jun 2019 13:19:20
4 for Tav lol This page is a laugh if nothing else!

15 Jun 2019 13:28:26
People on here only focus on Tavs poor games and some of his weaker attributes. What about the games where he has been exceptional (more often than not) and his better attributes? I believe Tav is middle to upper class championship level. Bottom prem at a push. So, two questions. Is Tav not that level? And is 10m unreasonable for a good championship level full back?

15 Jun 2019 13:48:47
I wish i knew you personally Sir_Rock_Katic. Because i would bet you any amount you wanted that if tav is sold, it will b at least double the 4million you quote. Stevie G would laugh at a 4million bid for tav from any english club. You say half of our supporters don't rate tav? Again my friend i think you're miles off.
There's a small percentage of our supporters who don't rate tav and like everyone they're entitled to their opinions, but you're miles off saying 50% of our supporters don't rate tav or want him sold! Don't agree with you whatsoever mate, simple as that.

15 Jun 2019 14:15:41
I'll put this to you Sir_Rock_Katic.
I take it you surely rate scotty arfield? I myself rate arfield very highly. So taking into account arfield is now 30 years old and there's rumoured to be southampton and other clubs interested in arfield, how much do you think he's worth and what's the least sum of money we should accept for him, if he were sold?

15 Jun 2019 14:20:41
Yeah I tend rarely to agree with you coops but I do value your opinion. Im not saying well sell him for 4m only that nobody will pay more for him and therefore hell stay and win us marginally more games than he loses. Im not focusing on his negative attributes, just the important ones for a right back. I get the impression Tav is happy here and I suspect hell be here for a good few seasons yet.

What is interesting is you choose to focus on the through away comment of 50% of people not rating him rather than the reasoning behind the 4m value. I wonder why that was LOL?

15 Jun 2019 14:54:13
You're entitled to what you think of tav mate, but nothing you can post regarding tav will change my thinking on our captain. For a player of tav's stats in scottish football for any english club interested in buying him again i'll state incase you're not grasping what i'm meaning, they would be prepared to pay a lot more than your paltry 4million for him, we'll just wait and see who's correct on this one.
An example is that the other mob would be hoping to fetch anything around 15-20million for their left back kieran tierney. Tav blows away tierney in most of their stats agreed? So try and understand where i'm coming from in my valuation in this day and age, of james tavernier. Remember i'm judging 2 full backs who ply their trade in SCOTTISH FOOTBALL.

15 Jun 2019 14:55:17
Dont think it would be a big loss to lose Arfield, I think he could be replaced more easily than Tav imo.

15 Jun 2019 14:56:48
Also to back SGL up a bit for a change because he usually talks nonsense I would not accept anything lower than 8 million for Tav.

15 Jun 2019 14:56:57
Katic, just to help us understand where you are coming from on Tav.

Could you give us a brief resume that we can compare to Stevie G or even Mark Allen so that we can decide whether your opinion has any relevance?

4m my sides are killing me!

15 Jun 2019 15:02:42
Arfield was our best player last season imo, at 30 year old and playing in Scotland Id suggest he is also with no more than 4m. Personally I think it would be suicide to sell Arfield and if we need to raise funds Id let both Tav and Morelos go before Arfield.

15 Jun 2019 16:16:19
GANNET10,you think scotty arfield WOULDN'T be a big loss if he was sold? He was our best player last season. He's a terrific midfielder.
Honestly, i don't know what you're watching mate!

15 Jun 2019 16:25:23
Tav is worth a lot more than 4mill
To the gers it's a case of how much
Other clubs are prepared to pay
Sometimes his link up play with the candy man was a joy to watch.

15 Jun 2019 16:29:09
DK19 - my opinion was backed up with some fairly high level numbers and insight to why I believe 4m is the max a team would be willing to pay. What about you, anything to back up 10m or is your gut just telling you have a word with yourself mate, it one person has put forward even a flimsy argument to why you think hes work more? My sides are hurting with laughter at most of you on here! If he leaves the transfer fee will be closer to 4m than 10m. 10m honestly you couldnt make this up!

15 Jun 2019 17:21:03
Gannet, you don't rate milner, henderson, you think arfield would not be a loss and you want shankland to fire us to 55. I know everyone is entitled to an opinion but its very hard to take your opinion seriously.

15 Jun 2019 17:39:46
Gannet dosnt rate Arfield and thinks Stevie talks nonsense

Oh dear I rest my case .

15 Jun 2019 19:09:19
S RK I have read and sometimes considered other peoples opinions on our players, you however are either sadly out of touch or inept. Tav (20 assists a season) is worth 20M.

15 Jun 2019 19:51:30
I still can't believe the negativity towards Tav, he is an outsanding player for us. He has nailed RB as his position and is your typical modern day attacking player. He would be tremendously hard to replace.

15 Jun 2019 20:28:00
Bluepete. 20 assists? Are you just making up numbers now? One of us appear sadly out of touch and very inept and seeing how Tav had 14 assists Ill leave it with you to figure out who. 20m, why not just go for 50m or 100m? .

15 Jun 2019 21:13:02
It's going to be all down to other clubs propensity to pay, and as far as Tav goes EPL clubs will test us with 5m/ 6m and for the latter he'll be gone.

15 Jun 2019 21:26:14
Gerrard for the final time WON'T sell james tavernier for less than 10million.

16 Jun 2019 09:11:02
Katic, its not my opinion that I am debating with. Your view on Tav is the opposite of every professional that I have heard talk about him including our manager.

Perhaps you are right and Stevie G has no clue but thats not where Id put my money.

But hey, youre e titled to an opinion.

16 Jun 2019 11:14:16
10m he's worth all day every day. Especially if it's an English club look at the money down there 10m is easily achievable.

16 Jun 2019 17:16:01

If Tavernier was as good as you say why isnt he playing at a much higher level?

16 Jun 2019 18:13:43
Srk, you best hope we get good weather when tav eventually moves,10 million we would get that just now for tab, if he were to stay and we were to win the league next season then tav will be 15/ 20 million player.
