Lots of folk on here that regularly criticise our captain Tav lack of defensive qualities but pretty good going forward.

I know of a similar player who plays on the left - great going forward with a wicked cross but has been a bit suspect at times in defence.

One has been very consistent since he arrived, has played almost every game, has amazing stats but has made a couple of errors that cost us.

The other hasn't played as many games, has made more mistakes, has been inconsistent since he arrived (until recently) but is a Croatian international.

Don't understand why Tav gets all the stick.

Tav gets all the stick because he constantly flogs all the goals. He had an absolutely shocking start to the season. His penalties covered his mistakes last season but they have dried up this season.

I think both our full backs james tavernier and borna barisic are fantastic full backs and very important in the way gerrard wants rangers to play. I do however agree to an extent with DK19,as tav gets far too much stick from some of our supporters. I've said before and i'll say again, some won't realise how much tav offers our team, 'till he's no longer here! Some of our supporters have tav CONTINUALLY as the whipping boy and are way too hard on him! He had a poor spell of form a few weeks back, but again has now found his form and came back like the terrific footballer he is.
Don't take my word for it tav doubters, trust our manager and he rates tav highly and loves the guy.
What an athlete tav is, into the bargain!

And Barasic? Couldn’t nail down a place, many errors for goals but now he is golden balls?

Some players are forgiven their errors and form dips but others not?

Wonder where the bias lies?

Are you Tav in disguise? 😂

Borna is twice the player, let’s be real.

Tav will be always have a place in my heart. He was one of my sons favorite players when he started watching the Gers and has grown up with him. When I see or hear of Tav in years to come it will always remind me of my lad going to his first game adorned in a full Rangers strip and then my wife giving me a brass neck running across the road and stopping his Range Rover for a photo, which he duly obliged. I will post it if I can retrieve it from her phone.

Theswagman, i'm not saying barisic isn't a better all round full back than tav mate. Like i stated, i think both are terrific full backs and detrimental to how we play. I just think tav gets made the whipping boy when others who make mistakes don't.
We should all be supporting and happy we've got to very good attacking full backs, which is the modern full back now and the way gerrard wants them to play!

Detrimental? Did you not do this before Mr Coop lol. I know what you mean tho mate. 100% agree. Tav gets far to much stick.

I've always thought that Tav would be better playing further forward in the right midfield position. He is quick and can (usually) cross a good ball. That way he wouldn't be left exposed at the back. I get that SG rates Tav highly but if we brought in a new, classy right back then Tav could be part of our midfield squad. I don't think Flanagan is good enough.

What many seem to miss, is that if you watch games carefully, Tav does a huge amount of good defending. The boy is brimming with energy and is very creative with many tasty balls in to the box. He deserves better.

Tav has 3 goals and 6 assists and Borna has 2 goals and 6 assists in the league so far. Their stats are very similar. Tav had a sticky patch but has defended well of late and cut out the sloppy mistakes. Can we not just enjoy having 2 excellent full backs t the minute. Wasn't that long ago we had guys like Richard Foster and Agyriou (Greek lad not sure how it's spelt) 🤣. Tav is still the best RB in the league so I think we are doing ok 👍.

Bizz, too many minds already made up on Tav and they ain't for changing no matter how well he plays.

For me, I guess SG will sell him only when he has identified someone who is better (and we can afford) as with every position in the team. Until then he is captain and 1st name on the teamsheet and should be supported 100% by all fans - even the Fifa pro managers!
