James Tavernier celebrates Scottish Championship leaders Rangers moving one step closer to the Scottish Premiership with a picture that sums up his passion.

James Tavernier took to Twitter after the "Rangers family" took a big step toward winning promotion back to the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Mark Warburton's side edged out Queen of the South in a 4-3 thriller at Ibrox to move 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship.

Tavernier, a summer signing from Wigan Athletic, was among the goalscorers, and the English defender summed up his affinity for the Glasgow giants on social media with an impassioned celebration.

It was a double celebration of sorts for Warburton and co, with second-placed Falkirk losing at home to Livingston.

As a result, Rangers can seal their promotion back to the big time next week if the Gers beat Raith Rovers at Stark Park and if Hibernian fail to win away at St Mirren.

It will be quite a long time coming for Rangers, who had to effectively start again as a club after being liquidated resulted in them dropping into the fourth tier of Scottish football in 2012.
