Graeme Murty’s Glasgow Rangers lost to Brendan Rodgers’s Celtic on Sunday.
Graeme Murty’s side suffered a 4-0 loss at the hands of Brendan Rodgers’s Celtic at Hampden Park in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon.
The performance of the Rangers players was hugely disappointing, and right-back Tavernier, who moved to the Ibrox club from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £200,000, has admitted that strong words were exchanged between the players after the match.
Tavernier told The Scottish Sun: “It was embarrassing to come off the pitch after putting in a performance like that.
“Were there strong words between the boys? 100 per cent but you can say plenty of words, you’ve got to put them into action.”
“I spoke about being ruthless in our defence and cutting out mistakes — but mistakes were what cost us yet again and it’s just not good enough,” added Tavernier.
Rangers were the second best team against Celtic at Hampden Park, and the way the Hoops dismantled the Gers reinforced their superiority over them at the moment.
The Ibrox club have to move on from the heavy defeat to the Hoops and focus on finishing second in the Scottish Premiership this season.
