Rangers' attacking right-back has been a revelation at Ibrox under Mark Warburton.
Rangers' James Tavernier heads at goal
Reports in Turkey today have suggested that ambitious Turkish side Trabzonspor have had an interest in luring Rangers player James Tavernier away from Glasgow this summer – but to no avail.
Lig TV are reporting the side had identified the Rangers right-back to fill a gap in their team on that side.

However, Tavernier looks set to stay in Glasgow and Trabzonspor have in fact moved on – targeting Fabian Castillo of FC Dallas instead.
Tavernier was of course a revelation for Mark Warburton last season, but that put a target on the Rangers defender’s head.

But he committed his future to Ibrox recently. Tavernier signed a new one-year extension to his current deal in Glasgow at the end of July – meaning he is now tied down to Rangers until the end of the 2018-19 season.
Tavernier, who joined Warburton’s men from W igan Athletic along with Martyn Waghorn last summer, was superb for Rangers last season.

He scored 15 goals from right-back and became one of the most feared attacking full-backs in Scotland – so it is no wonder he attracted interest from other clubs.
But the defender has committed his future to Rangers and will not be swapping Glasgow for Turkey anytime soon.
