Can I start a thread on a Rangers captain. What does he / she require, I keep hearing not captain material so let's get it off our chest. As a start what does Tav lack as a captain IYO. I think Tav is some player and from what I hear a good captain.

Lacks on field leadership for me. He doesn't bollock or encourage players when they are having a mare or making silly mistakes, for instance poor passing or caught out of position which he is pretty guilty of himself.
Whilst this season we have been better as a team in the past when teams have came at us and you could sense they were starting to control the game he wouldn't encourage players to get stuck in or go in for that 40/ 60 challenge to send out a signal.
Still can't get over the piece in the Rangers news when he said we bottled it when teams put us under pressure or words to that effect.
I do rate him as a player and he is critical to out style of play but not a captain for me. He may well be very good off the park but when it boils down to it games are won on the park.
That all being said I did notice him given instructions to someone today and go over to the ref when Barasic was called over with Edwards, first time I noticed that so here is hoping he will improve.

Rangers are always looking to improve and 1 way of doing that would be to nominate a new captain. That way Rangers would improve and Tav can concentrate on doing his job properly.

He lacks aura of a Gough or Ferguson snarling shouting heart on sleeve die for the Jersey attitude and his defensive frailty that big teams always exploit including old firms he's a weak link but at same time his attacking attributes and kilometeres per game are impressive but goldson jack McGregor would be much better captains.

I'm quite happy with Tav being captain. Yes you don't see him getting tore into players on the pitch but that's obviously not how he does things but doesn't make him a bad leader. He must be a leader in other ways or Gerrard wouldn't have gave him the honour of being our captain because if anyone knows what it takes to be a captain then there's no better person than our manager who's been there and done it at the highest level.

Groundhog Day ahead.

jctheger a balanced opinion. Does anybody think that making Davis, Jack, Goldson, Arf think that would make us better. not convinced. Apparently Tav has missed 4 training sessions in the time he has been at Rangers, that is captain material. Great servant to our club. A right back in the box for a tap in. Surprised Duracell don't employ him. I for one hopes he is the one to lift the trophy at the end of the season. Seems like a good bloke that everyone looks up to. I will miss Tav when he goes. Legend.

Agreed TJBB. Tav is a modern fullback and as reliable as anyone. Never injured. Some say he doesnโ€™t scream and shout enough but that boat has sailed many years ago.

SG sees him every day and every session and has played him even through downturns in form but some on here know bette ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

TJBB - Out those name I think Goldson would make a decent captain. Davis has the experience but still pretty quiet on the park for my liking, Jack not a captain for me and Arfield not a regular starter. As SirWalter said above, I am looking at a Gough or Butcher type captain, a player with a presence that others respect and listen to and know if they are not playing up to scratch the first person giving them a talk is the captain.

Well I think it should be a he for a start.

13 Sep 2020 12:30:51
there are two things here. have a go take on all responsibilities positive attitude which can be a great example and take on lots of responsibilities and then fail at them. the latter being tav. awareness of this is all that i'm asking.

I don't recall Davie Weir ever Shouting at anyone on the pitch ever but for me was a class captain. Being a captain isn't just about how loudly you can shout, players deal with things differently.
