James Tavernier shows how much Rangers means to him

Rangers FC - Ibrox

The Ibrox defender looks delighted alongside Kenny Miller.


Mark Warburton's Rangers moved 15 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship on Friday night with a comfortable 3-1 home win over Greenock Morton.


Denny Johnstone opened the scoring for the visitors on 23 minutes, but hit-man Kenny Miller equalised just before half time to lay the foundations for the comeback.


Miller netted again within three minutes of the restart, before Lee Wallace then secured the three points as a return to the Scottish Premiership looks imminent for a club who were demoted to the fourth tier in 2012.


There is certainly a feel-good vibe down at Ibrox at the moment. If losing twice in 28 league games does not illustrate that, then defender James Tavernier's picture on Twitter might.


The 24-year-old Englishman, who joined the club last summer, uploaded an impassioned picture of himself and two-goal hero Miller on the night, along with a blue heart.




Warburton's side - who also have a game in hand - have since seen their lead at the summit cut to 14 points after Falkirk's draw on Saturday, but even still, they will surely be back in the big time next term.

April 17 will give Rangers a taste of what they can expect in the top flight next season as they face off with bitter Glasgow rivals Celtic in a Scottish Cup semi-final - just the second Old Firm derby since their financial meltdown.
