Maybe he's got a girlfriend and she might not be too pleased, only a thought!

21 Jul 2019 08:31:11
Aye, I heard he's hung like a Shire horse as well.

21 Jul 2019 10:01:30
Laughed out loud at this. Ah the simple things in life lol.

21 Jul 2019 16:59:40
what a load of codswallop.

21 Jul 2019 18:46:08
Eetu Vertainen agree he was brilliant on the day not sure he's set the world a light since.

20 Jul 2019 16:41:54
Personally I don't see Tavs going to Newcastle unless they offer mad wages to him Newcastle is not good club to go to giving the way they are run
James Tavernier loves Rangers and knows where his bread is buttered

You can look at this two ways, he is away to come into his peak years so chances are he will be at his best and Rangers are due some silverware, which I feel they will get this year (hopefully 55 🤞) and himself and others at the club will get this and deservedly so

Secondly, maybe other suitors see that he has matured and know that his best years here now, if they want him he is worth between a modest 12-15m bracket at a good age 27

Let's no compare KT with JT as Tavernier is better in an attacking sense and Teirney is better at defending!

Overall, it's a hard one to choose I will say last year, Tavs was better simply due playing times he is incredible and Me Reliable NEVER injured! Teirney wasnt the same player as the previous year due to injuries!

Having said all of this you have a lad that is only 22/ 23 who could potentially be another Andy Robertson and Tavs is 27 hence the values are different and also the fact that one has Champions League experience under his belt

I reckon if Celtic are wanting 25m for Keiran Teirney then Rangers should be looking at looking at 15m for Tavs
I reckon that is a really reasonable ask.

Agree6 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 17:45:33
As you said, 25m for an injured player who contributes absolutely nothing to the attacking side of a squad. Or 15m for a player who is never injured who CAN defend, far better than he did in his 1st few seasons, but has consistently provided an added threat and goals. I'd swap those valuations to be honest.

20 Jul 2019 19:05:00
TAV will be half the player if Candeias goes.

20 Jul 2019 20:10:00
DEEB that's nonsense. When morelos was suspended Tav was out the side as Arfield was playing there and we played far better football. Even if candieas does stay he will be a bit part player as Ojo is far better player think that's pretty clear.

20 Jul 2019 22:08:04
Tav will be exposed without DC however, he’ll still create more goals than he causes.

20 Jul 2019 23:05:13
I don't think it's hard to choose at all. Tierney is a good player, but has never did anything of note to merit any of the hype and is not anywhere near the level of Robertson - thry only thing they have in common is being Scottish. Not even sure he would play for Arsenal ahead of Monreal - KT is
a decent full back who is injury prone. Only managed 90 minutes about 13 times last season.

Tav has played 198 times for us in 4 years, almost 50 games a season - a mind blowing stat. Never injured, rarely ever booked never mind suspended and has 43 goals + more assists than you can count. He can play full back, wing back or even wide right and influential in everything we do. Tierney was covered by Johnny Hayes.

21 Jul 2019 11:14:33
@GF7, agree with most of that except the bit "He can play full back" lol.

21 Jul 2019 14:21:26
Tierney is very good attacking, what player have you been watching? He isn’t Robertson but he’s considerably better than Tav. For his age and ability the Tims are within their rights to ask what they are, especially from an English club. We could take a lesson from them in getting value for our players. In saying that, £10m is probably fair for Tav. He’s a good bit older than Tierney and is probably at this point never going to improve much defensively and will be an utter liability down there. Folk here go on about his assists without subtracting from the total how many goals he costs us. Also his goal return - he hits all the penalties and half the free kicks. Watching Polster’s deliveries through the week, if he replaced Tav I’m sure he would get double digit assists too.

21 Jul 2019 16:47:53

Its not nonsense, I don't know if you go to games but if yoy did you should have seen DC covering for Tav a great many times; its a fact.

21 Jul 2019 18:42:20
Bryan you really are clueless you really, you should stop watching football to be honest.

20 Jul 2019 16:19:55
Will be an interesting few weeks and a few of us will be left with egg on our faces if Tav and Morelos are sold.

Some think Tav is a crap defender and we should take anything above £3m for him, others say £10m

Similarly, some say take £5m for Morelos and others say £20m.

My concern is how we replace these guys and still improve the 1st team without spending most of the proceeds.

If we sell Tav for less than £10m and Morelos for less than £16m I'll be surprised and disappointed but assume that SG would have ready made replacements in the wings.

Time will tell who knows more.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 18:16:34
I’ll high 5 SG if he gets anywhere near those prices, we’d be laughing all the way to the bank!

I look forward to watching both players at Ibrox next season.

20 Jul 2019 20:56:32
I too would like to see both stay but if they both left and we got a net £20m I would take it tomorrow given that we paid no more than £1.4m for the pair. We would have to have replacement lined up as I don’t believe SG will allow either to leave late in the window.

20 Jul 2019 23:24:53
Money in the bank is worthless if the team on the pitch is weaker, we must find a way of improving the squad overall if either of these players go!

21 Jul 2019 17:01:57
money in the bank is what's called running a business prpperly.

20 Jul 2019 16:12:34
What about 15 million for tavernier and jabba the hut servers all ties with us once and for all?

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 15:19:45
A lot of paper talk about Tav and Morelos. Papers know as much as us about what is and is not happening. Tav will go if the price is right - and the going rate for a captain and a seasoned right back is around £20 million.
Morelos will also go if the price is right - the negative snipers are going as low as £5 million, but we know where their allegiances lie. Personally I think he will go for £25 million - that price will stop any haggling or doubt and would make a quick sale. He knows he has to grow a pair and man up and become more savvy - hope he has learned from SG and Defoe.

Interesting few weeks ahead.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 20:29:18
So you want 45mil for tav and morelos🤔.

20 Jul 2019 21:36:16
You would expect close to 30m for the pair of these guys What you think Coldo?

20 Jul 2019 21:57:07
In my humble honest opinion, the max i think we would get if we sold tav and alfredo would be £25million.

20 Jul 2019 22:10:08
Nothing wrong with that Mr Negative.

20 Jul 2019 23:35:19
25mil mark for both is a reasonable figure👍.

21 Jul 2019 10:58:29
Those two worth less than Tierney?

20 Jul 2019 14:30:58
Remember a few weeks ago Stevie g said every player has a price and I remember someone sayin 10mil for tav and 20mil for alfmo.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 13:00:15
Watching some of the training videos on rangers TV and you can really tell the emphasis on intensity and finding space to break teams down.

I've noticed though that Docs training gear is different to everyone else's, everyone else has their initials in white on their gear yet Docs is in Black with red trim - just seems bizarre, anyone know why that is?

Think his mum packed the wrong outfit - nothing sinister.

20 Jul 2019 16:10:42
Him and Graham Dorrans have the same intitals it’s just so they know who’s kit is who’s.

21 Jul 2019 18:41:29
Ahh makes sense. I knew it was nothing sinister just with the wrong facing chevrons recently etc. It caught my eye.

20 Jul 2019 13:02:40
Was meant to finish with only my opinion what do youse think?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 12:38:24
Guys think we all know Moreleos will leave in this window personally hope we don't accept anything under 15million with 2O% sell on clause trust Stevie G to have a good replacrment which I know will be hard to find someone who will score 3O + a season but genuinely I think we will miss Tav more

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 09:46:20
I see that tue daily rebel is reporting that Newcastle want tav. I'd ask for at least 15M. Tho personally i want him to stay but if we do sell then get as much off the fat Rat as possible.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 10:42:01
Do you think he would go to them, fair enough for much more money or stay 1 more season and captain us to the title? Legendary status that would be.

20 Jul 2019 10:48:58
I don't want Tav to go but maybe it could be used in a deal to get Ashley out of our club properly.

20 Jul 2019 11:11:00
You could ask for 15m but unlikely to get. We and the world know he's not the greatest defender. Newcastle need strikers and will be desperate to add to Bruce's squad. 7m tops. Only Morelos will provide a real payday!

20 Jul 2019 11:42:25
we are in the fortunate position Robbie that tavs at his peak, our captain and most importantly on a long contract

I firmly believe we are a far stronger team with tav (sorry polster flanno don't even come close) as he’s central to all our attacking play and therefore crucial for 55

given the circus surrounding SD retail i’d ask 20m

in short, fat ashley can Foxtrot Alpha.

20 Jul 2019 12:53:14
At the end of the day, Rangers football club is a business, if we want to move forward, not only on the park, but as a brand, their needs to be smart business moves made. If we're talking 20m for a player we paid 1m for, and ( imo ) 7 to 10 for Tav, who we paid 250k for, then that is the kind of business the club cannot afford to pass up. I strongly believe Gerrard will guide us to 55 and he has a plan which is being seen this season more than last in terms of his own squad and approach. No player is bigger than the club.

20 Jul 2019 13:03:38
Will be astounded if we deal with ashley.

20 Jul 2019 13:06:58
Id say don't do business with them whatsoever while he's in charge.
