Rangers fans react on Twitter to James Tavernier's goal and performance v Peterhead

Rangers Gates

Rangers defender James Tavernier stole the show against Peterhead.

Rangers made it a week to remember, winning the Petrofac Training Cup on Sunday afternoon with a 4-0 win over Peterhead at Hampden Park.

The Gers were in high spirits having won the Scottish Championship title just days earlier, and Mark Warburton made it two trophies in a week on Sunday.

After Ally Gilchrist opened the scoring for Rangers with an own goal, right back James Tavernier hit his 14th goal of the season with a stunning volley from long range.

Andy Halliday's penalty and a late Kenny Miller goal sealed the win for Rangers, who celebrated another trophy ahead of next weekend's crucial Scottish Cup semi-final against Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Following the final whistle, Rangers fans took to Twitter to give their reactions to the performance, and unsurprisingly, it was defender Tavernier who stole the plaudits.

The summer signing from Wigan Athletic has become a fan favourite at Ibrox for his marauding attacking displays, and whilst questions remain over his defensive capabilities, his stunning goal on Sunday once again underlined his ability going forward.

Rangers fans suggested that Tavernier's volley was the goal of the season, and urged him to do the same next week when Rangers take on Celtic.

Others congratulated him on his man-of-the-match performance, and defended him from criticism about his defensive qualities - or lack of - having produced a moment to savour against Peterhead.
