Rangers defender James Tavernier has taken to Twitter to send a message to Lee Hodson, who has left the Ibrox club for Gillingham.

As announced on Gillingham’s official website today, the League One club in England have signed Hodson on a free transfer following his departure from Rangers this summer.


The 27-year-old right-back joined Rangers in the summer of 2016, but he failed to make an impact at Ibrox and was not given a new contract following the expiry of his original one.


Rangers right-back Tavernier has sent a message to Hodson on Twitter, and the newly-signed Gillingham right-back has responded to him.

Hodson has also taken to Twitter to express his delight at signing a contract with Gillingham.

Tavernier himself has been linked with a move away from Rangers in the summer transfer window.
