Looks like Gio wants tav in turkey.

Agree8 Disagree0

09 Jun 2024 14:50:39
Just read that 2.bidding war?

09 Jun 2024 14:57:51
Was just thinking that Wilks, SG and GVB duking it out, Tav flagbearers??. In saying that he was a great player for us, but not so much now.

09 Jun 2024 15:16:29
I do think its time for Tav and Goldson to move on. Great players on their day though.

09 Jun 2024 15:23:42
If he dose go, I hope we get top dollar, cause no matter what people think or say he will take some replacing,
No one will get the numbers he dose from that position n bad defending or not he give us so so much.

09 Jun 2024 15:41:09
Jeez - Tav scored 24 goals last season from fullback!?! There isn't a fullback in world football that has numbers like that. I can’t believe people want him binned.

09 Jun 2024 16:34:59
Never been about the goals, defensive duties are on the slide unfortunately.

09 Jun 2024 16:39:18
Folk will only realise what Tav brought until he is gone. I don't think there ever has been a player that has fans frothing at the mouth so much than James Tavernier.

Every defeat and I mean every defeat he gets some sort of blame attached.

09 jun 2024 16:41:43
i prefer to have winners in my team mate, he could score every day of the week and twice on a sunday

but he has been the root cause of so many goals it’s difficult to even guess how many.

09 Jun 2024 16:42:39
Agreed BD. Unbelievable.

09 Jun 2024 16:59:13
Defenders job is stopping goals, Tavernier we all know isn't the best at that, we'll replace his goals from wide players and goals from cm obviously along with our cf.

09 Jun 2024 17:01:22
I’d keep tav, his goals and assist will be missed massively. He just needs better cover.

09 Jun 2024 17:07:53
I'd play tav further forward tbh play sterling lb.

09 Jun 2024 17:08:25
I would prefer my strikers and wingers to score and we can replace his pens by someone else taking them and I prefer my defenders being able to defend which he can’t.

09 Jun 2024 17:11:21
Who’s the winners you’d prefer like? Shankland? And stop mentioning the teams from the past we’d all love those players but players like that we won’t see the likes again. If Tav was great defender he’d be worth 60 million but we all know he is not. Broken record.

09 Jun 2024 17:11:46
I don’t think it’s just people want him binned we don’t want another


Players walking away for free.

09 Jun 2024 17:25:14
Tav had 24 goals and 12 assists last season a get the defending bit but be honest if we get a better defensive rb where are the 36 goal contributions going to come from.

09 Jun 2024 17:26:37
Captain Tav I agree mate. People saying I want winners etc happy to pick up players like shankland barron etc and guys from Europe who have won absolutely NOTHING. Tav has won 3 trophies and was a baw hair away from a European trophy. Definitely should have won more but sick of this “need winners” argument because we ain’t going to be signing people with 10+ trophies on their cv.

09 Jun 2024 17:42:37
These wingers will need too hit a garenteed 20 odd goals a season
N then penaltys who takes over n I do agree with better cover tav won't have too defend so much n be exposed so much there pros n cons too tav
But we won't get a player of his calibre in that position
Better defender yeah
Captain there might be but going forward n for what we would realistically just won't happen

Takes a one off n when's he's gone folk wilk realise just how good he was.

09 Jun 2024 17:49:44
Its the teams job to stop goals this isn't the 90s. You defend from the front. Tav is not as bad as people make it out, sterling has had absolute howlers at the back, so has Yilmaz yet are voided of all blame because they aren't Tav.

09 Jun 2024 17:53:32
I'd play him further to the right, the other side of the touchline sounds about right.

09 Jun 2024 17:54:07
Hopefully the club will get a decent return from any prospective transfer.
Tav`s been good for us over the piece but like a few others, feel we have had his best years, may be best for both parties to part ways.
Connor`s consistency dropped last season so if the opportunity arises then by all means a move would probably be a good option as well.
We`ll be fine going forward, hoping for a new dynamic style of play once the gaffer gets his men in.

09 Jun 2024 18:00:04
Take away tavs goals and assists in the last 5 seasons we would be lucky to finish top 3, for his defensive frailties he makes up with it in and more with his goal contributions, massive loss in my opinion, I just wish we had played him rw and got a solid right back in.

09 Jun 2024 18:01:14
Heard people saying before about moving Tav in to a central midfield position. Not sure how that would suit him tbh but would be worth a try if we kept him on. Ricksen was a RB and went in to the middle and was excellent. I do think he needs to step back as captain if he stays on though.

09 Jun 2024 18:35:48
Truth is their isn't many Fulllbacks in the world that can defend that aren't CBs that play out wide. Robertson is probably your best shout. and Fullbacks will only get more and more attack minded.

09 Jun 2024 18:39:38
If Tav goes and gets plenty of dosh fair play. While folk mosty agree he's not the best defender we need to replace his contribution in goals and assists and that will be extremely difficult. IMO we shoulda unburdened tav and just let him go forward, but can't change now.

Whatever happens, all this crap about serial losers is exactly that, . crap. one man doesn't change the course of things qnd tqv has stepped. up when it mattrrs.

09 Jun 2024 18:57:00
James Tavernier was just nominated for Scotland’s PFA POTY award. He is still performing to a level that makes him one of the best in Scotland. He had the highest average match rating in the SPFL last season, 12 MOTM awards, the goals and assists are ridiculous, etc.

I think it would take a lot to move Tavernier (something like £5m) and I can’t see a club from Turkey paying that. Clubs from Turkey have been linked with our players for years but when do they ever bid anything? Most of our players go there on a free.

09 Jun 2024 19:29:33
Don’t think any new RB will get a fifth of his numbers that’s the midfield, wingers and strikers job to take our goals to well above last seasons tally.

09 jun 2024 19:55:10
nobody will ever deny he’s scored many a fantastic goal and had some great moments, not in top 15 rangers right backs imo, maybe more,

09 Jun 2024 20:13:44
Let’s get back to rumours! .

09 Jun 2024 20:17:23
If we get a decent fee for Tav or Goldson i'd say they need to be moved on, but as far as it goes Tav has been an exceptional player and captain for this club over the years. few gers in recent times can match his vision, set pieces, stamina and match fitness even now with his pce dropping off he is a massive contributor going forward. He will be very hard to replace for a few million.

09 Jun 2024 20:23:35
There is no need why we should get rid!
Unless silly money!
Play him at right midfield!
Or right wing!
Been saying this for the last two years!
He is not a defender!

09 Jun 2024 20:31:35
He can’t play right wing that’s why we don’t play him there.

09 jun 2024 21:07:06
he’s neither a right winger nor a midfielder and would be completely lost, he’s a poor right back who can score a world class free kick and hits a great penalty, most times, he also punts hundreds of cross balls and free kicks into the nearest street, as o said, great goals, awful defender.

09 Jun 2024 21:19:11
Tav has been a massive player for Rangers especially with his goals and assists, and only when he is not at Rangers will we as supporters really appreciate his value to the team.
Its a big IF wether he stays our leaves as every player is sellable but at the moment it’s media speculation.

09 Jun 2024 21:45:39
JR problem is he is better at coming onto the ball as opposed to being Infront of play which is why he hasn't been played at RW. Someone said earlier CM and I agree he could do a job in there similar to Trent Alexander Arnold who also is a terrible defender. Tavs numbers are irreplaceable certainly from his position and he would be a huge loss but money talks and a big offer cannot be ignored.

09 Jun 2024 21:50:21
Storm. why not?
He plays right wing most of the time?
He is great going forwards but no good defending?
So hy not?
Explain mate?

09 Jun 2024 22:08:34
15 of his 24 goals being penalities. Any decent bid and its goodbye from me.

09 Jun 2024 22:28:18
Whoever replaces him shouldn't be judged on goals. Neither is any other right back in the world. We move on and find new ways to play and better ways to defend.

09 Jun 2024 22:45:27
How many goals did celtic rb score? we need defenders defending.

09 Jun 2024 22:58:22
Exactly phil jeez and half decent striker shoukd be pen taker anyway.

09 Jun 2024 22:53:47
Time to go.

09 Jun 2024 23:24:23
Jr storm doesn't need to explain, the 6 or so managers tav has been under here explains it perfectly, not one has played him there, why? Because his position is right back. Do you not think PC would have tried that if he could when tav was costing us at least one goal a game in last 3 months, especially having a rb there in Sterling. It's not as easy as that mate.

10 Jun 2024 07:06:19
TT12,to look at everything regarding james tavernier fairly and closely yes he has cost us goals and has defensive deficiencies mate, but which his modern day right back position he plays, his attributes far outweighs his defensive issues with ease imo ? Football is a team game and tav gets the blame of a lot of things defensively, even when it's not him to start with and we defend as a team ?A poster further up the thread here said where would we be without tav and that's correct imo ? We wouldn't have finished even second on most occasions, wouldn't have won the league cup and wouldn't have done as well in europe most times, if it hadn't been for tav and his contributions and that's all there for you to see ?On our fantastic run to the europa league final, we would have been nowhere near getting to that final, if it hadn't been for james tavernier and his outstanding contributions ? again not fabrication guys, have a look, as it's all there to see ?Like i said he gets a blame of a lot when it originally wasn't him at the start of the original mistake, that we lose a goal from, so common a bit of fairness here ?.

10 Jun 2024 07:18:39
“Never been about the goals” says one!

People don’t have a fricken clue what a modern day FB is and certainly one that we can afford! Christ even Trent is poor at defending and defensive positioning! So much so Klopp moved him cause he has a kid who is better.

Take away Tavs goals and we don’t have the crap number of trophies we’ve got or a Euro final as he was top scorer in that comp too!

Best goal scoring RB of all time! BUT ‘WE’ don't WANT HIM!



10 Jun 2024 08:54:23
Opinions are subjective, he's a defender that doesn't defend, you have your opinion others have theirs, telling people to get their heads checked is a bit rich, he's at fault too much and choosing to ignore it is your perogative, most on here recognise this, you are choosing not too.

10 Jun 2024 09:10:18
Walter I know your a big Tav fan, rightly so, but your basing some of that on past exploits bud, yes he scored 24 and assists albeit 15 were pens, but you must also look at what he costs defensively, he is not the same guy imo, I know you have yours, and I respect your defence of a great player, but if he stays he may cost us more than he can now offer. Just my opinion bud, that's all.

10 Jun 2024 09:24:29
People don’t have a clue modern day full back ? how many goals do Celtic full backs get? They won a double ? do you know why because their wingers and midfielders do that job and there full backs are their to defend.

JR just read boy blue post that explains it.

Cheers blue boy ?.

10 Jun 2024 10:13:33
Jr there in lies the problem, play tav in midfield or wing, wether we like it or not he’s a rb, very very poor defender who can’t tackle header pass or run at pace

Many say get rid Goldson get a better ch that can do his job and cover tav.
Get another dam cover tav when he’s constantly out of position

Taking penalties easy so not losing these goals.

10 Jun 2024 11:04:47
Storm that's an excellent point you made re how many goals did double winning champions full backs score? They scored 4 goals between them mate, because they were to busy doing there job "defending" they leave it to the guys brought to there club to score goals, while they do what they were brought to the club for defend goals. Yes they have to get forward but not to the point were you neglect your no1 duties.

10 Jun 2024 11:05:11
Any stream involving Tav has more nay's than yay's, but the nay's say the yay's don't understand modern FB's, go figure, think the majority of posters on here know enough to form an opinion of the difference in defensive performance standards in our team. We have coaches, ex pros, players and life long fans and a few stats savant that are pretty knowledgeable imo.

10 jun 2024 11:15:18
try explaining that to my friend captain tav john, he might accept your opinion.

10 Jun 2024 11:19:52
Gdog your point about klopp moving trent because he couldn't defend, counters your reasoning, tav can't defend but we've to keep him there? We also like Liverpool have a young guy there who will be better at defending.
Yeah john27 how about tav just does his job, stop asking for cover for someone that ain't able anymore.

{Ed001's Note - it is also nonsense as Bradley got into the team due to an injury to Trent. He was not moved, just injured.}

10 Jun 2024 13:23:47
He understands modern full backs but BB4?.

10 Jun 2024 15:14:00
Bb John doesn’t want tav moved, he like myself want him gone.

10 Jun 2024 15:46:47
General consensus TT, btw what is karlovasko, what type of booze bud, excuse my ignorance?.
