James Tavernier sends message to Rangers on Twitter

Rangers FC - Ibrox

James Tavernier wants Scottish Championship side Rangers to seal their second trophy this week.

Rangers star James Tavernier has issued a rousing message to his team-mates and fans ahead of this afternoon's Petrofac Training Cup final with Peterhead.

Hampden Park plays host as Mark Warburton's side look to wrap up their second trophy this week, having already clinched the Scottish Championship and promotion back to the Scottish Premiership with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton on Tuesday night.

Tavernier was the hero that night, scoring the game's only goal, and the 24-year-old called on his fellow Gers players via Twitter to follow up that success with another at the national stadium.

 

Warburton's troops are overwhelming favourites to lift the trophy, which would be a timely morale boost as a much bigger game lies on the horizon next Sunday.

 

The second Old Firm derby since 2012 will happen at Hampden in seven days as Rangers clash with bitter Glasgow rivals Celtic in a Scottish Cup semi-final.

 

With Rangers winning promotion back to the top flight, it will give Warburton and his players a taste of what is to come on a much more regular basis next season.
