Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter to reports coming from the Daily Mail linking James Tavernier with a move away from Ibrox, with Championship pair Sunderland and Reading both interested in signing the right-back.
Tavernier has done well since arriving at Ibrox during Mark Warburton's tenure, often proving to be one of the most prolific providers of goals and assists - even though he is a defender.
Only teammate Daniel Candeias has provided more assists than the five that Tavernier has contributed in the top flight this term, while he has also managed to find the back of the net on three occasions.
However, it appears that he may not be a Rangers player for much longer, with the Daily Mail recently suggesting that both Sunderland and the Royals are keen on bringing him back to England, and, perhaps surprisingly, the Gers are reportedly open to the idea of selling the 26-year-old.
The Mail adds that Tavernier has just 18 months left on his contract with the Scottish Premiership side and would be interested in considering a potential move away.
The news has prompted plenty of discussion amongst the Rangers fans on social media, and the majority of the supporters feel that selling him would be a mistake, and thus, the Light Blues board should only consider doing business with one of the interested sides if they receive big-money bids.
Here is the best of the reaction to the rumours...
If Sunderland want tav, nothing less than 7 million. Best RB in the league— Alex G (@WeeAlexG) December 28, 2017
Tav has played for us for 2 and a half seasons, we've not received one decent offer for him in that time because teams down south see that he's a lightweight, poor defender and going forward his crossing is patchy at best.— #GraemeMurtyLoyal (@StaunchusPilate) December 27, 2017
He's absolutely vital to us, no chance not even for 18 million dembele dollars— CJ (@Cjnovo992) December 28, 2017
Knowing oor board they'll probably accept £300k for him— Drew Currie (@DrewCurrie) December 28, 2017
30 million no bother there— irv hidd (@hidd0797) December 28, 2017
Can’t afford to keep players we will end up with hodson as the new right back— Christopher Martin (@luigibeag91) December 28, 2017
If rangers sell tav and windass we will finish outside top 4— Davotelli (@davotellii) December 28, 2017
Tav is the best right back in the league, one of our best players and is only 26, £2m . £5/6 million minimum— James Ferguson (@fergyRFC) December 28, 2017
If rangers loose tav it’ll be a massive loss don’t care what anyone says. Biggest threat in our team going forward. Best right back in Scottish football— HENDO (@Connor_hendyy) December 28, 2017
