Rangers defender James Tavernier says that the Gers will not change their playing style in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers defender James Tavernier has told The Daily Record that his side will not change their playing style if they get promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers are playing in the Scottish Championship at the moment, but they are likely to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

Mark Warburton’s side play a passing game and are quite entertaining to watch. The current Rangers squad will need reinforcements in the summer if they get promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

Many observers will question whether the Glasgow giants will be able to maintain their current playing style against the top teams in Scotland during the 2016-17 campaign.

Tavernier, who is 24 years of age and plays as a right-back, is confident that Rangers will be able to maintain their current playing style in the Scottish top flight.

“Even if it is more physical in the top league, we’ll still play football,” Tavernier told The Daily Record. “At the start of the season some teams wanted to come out and play against us. But we realised we had good footballers who could pass the ball around them.

“Physical players can be in your face but we’ve got boys who are nice and calm on the ball. That won’t break down. We’ll hopefully find their weaknesses.

“We’ve a good team now and the gaffer will strengthen it again in the summer – so we’ll be even stronger next season.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 66 points from 26 matches. The Gers are as many as 11 points clear of Hibernian, who are currently second in the standings.
